TIME: 8:30am-9:30am
TOPIC: Creating New Opportunities – 2021 Economic Forecast for Metro Denver
SPEAKER: Patty Silverstein, President and Chief Economist for Development Research Partners

SESSION INFORMATION: Recessions are rarely predicted correctly, even with the best economic data. An immediate and severe downturn driven by a health crisis was certainly not forecasted for 2020. Nonetheless, we must now assess the economic damage that occurred due to COVID-19. More importantly, in the face of extreme uncertainty, we must plot our path forward and determine how to create new opportunities even though all aspects of the economy have been changed or altered due to the virus.

This presentation will discuss current and projected growth trends at the national, state, and seven-county Metro Denver level. The presentation features employment and industry trends, population growth and consumer activity, and the residential and commercial real estate markets
