Did you know that the Inland Empire is the 15th largest labor market in the United States? That it is home to nearly 2 million working residents?

But the IE is different from similarly sized markets in a critical way: It has no ‘urban core’ where jobs are densely located. Instead, jobs are scattered across the region and a huge share of the population drives west daily, to reach the coastal economies where they work.

  • What does this dynamic mean for business creation and economic development in the region?
  • Is the creation of an urban core, dense with jobs, the best way to develop the local economy?

This year's Inland Empire Economic Forecast Conference merges up to the moment economic forecasts for major indicators such as GDP, home prices, personal income, employment, and consumer spending with a critical discussion about how the region should tackle and steer its growing, changing landscape. Join some of the state’s leading economists and urban planning experts to hear what’s next for the U.S., California, and Inland Empire economies, and for a data-driven discussion about the region’s urban future.
