The event featured presentations and a forum on economic activity and forecasts for the region and the nation.  This year, the event focused on the prospects and challenges for some of the most prominent companies in the Wilmington region.  The conference took place at the Burney Center on UNC-Wilmington’s Campus, and featured as panelists Dr. Jose Sartarelli, Chancellor of UNCW; Jay Wileman, Senior Vice President and COO of GE Hitachi Nuclear Energy;  and David Simmons, Chairman and CEO of PPD.  Dr. Thomas Simpson, PhD gave a presentation on the nation’s economic outlook, including his interpretation of the country’s employment gains, rising home values, decreased consumer caution, and areas of concern including subdued business fixed investments.  Dr. Adam Jones, PhD gave a presentation on the region’s economic outlook, focusing on the positives (improving labor market, increasing retail sales and increasing home sales, among others), and the negatives (external sector slowing, lower trading partner grown forecasts and certain public policy changes). The topics discussed in the conference are relevant to all Wilmington residents, but they are of special concern to business owners, investors, and those who work with businesses and real property owners, including real estate and business attorneys.
