Economic Outlook is the premier business and economic forecasting event of the year, attracting more than 600 attendees from the Austin region.

“The Austin region has experienced unprecedented economic growth over the last 15 years; but we cannot take this sustained growth as a given," said Austin Chamber of Commerce President Mike Rollins. "It is important for us to understand the trends that are driving the economy both in Austin and nationally. We’re fortunate to have Sarah House, Senior Economist & Director with Wells Fargo Securities, to share her insights and analysis and Martin Taylor, Operating Principal with Vista Equity Partners, to moderate a panel on disruptive and emerging trends that are impacting our economy.

Comprehending what awaits us in 2019 is of the highest importance for the Chamber and our region.”
