Economic Outlook

The Wheeling Area Economic Outlook Conference will be held May 2, 2017. More information is forthcoming.

BBER’s premier public event is its Economic Outlook Conference series. Since 1994, hundreds of business and community leaders from across West Virginia have attended these conferences annually to obtain a detailed and reliable forecast for the national and state economies, an analysis of recent national and state trends and other economic issues of interest. Each conference features BBER and national economists, along with business and community leaders.

Specialized briefings are also provided annually to the West Virginia Legislature at the beginning of the Legislative session and to various industry and civic organizations around the state. The Governor of West Virginia also typically incorporates BBER forecasts into the Governor’s Executive Budget.

Customized economic forecasts for particular regions of West Virginia are often undertaken through contracts with local economic development agencies, county commissions, private industry groups, etc. Please contact BBER Director John Deskins if you are interested in a customized forecast.
