Join the Washington Business Journal as we convene business leaders, finance experts and economists for a comprehensive look ahead for Greater Washington’s economy in 2020. Hear from the experts on how the prospect of a correction in the economy, the presidential election, and the much-anticipated arrival of Amazon HQ2 will affect our region in the coming year and beyond.
The morning begins with networking and breakfast, followed by a keynote presentation by Marty Rodgers, who oversees operations in 10 states and the District for professional services giant Accenture and has seen business shifts in the market up close for the last two decades.
Following his address, we will hear a presentation from our featured speaker, Amy Liu, of the Brookings Institution, who will talk and take audience questions about what Greater Washington must do to live up to its economic potential in the wake of HQ2. We will then move into a panel discussion with top financiers and venture capitalists around the region to learn what they are watching and expecting from 2020. Kick off the year with this powerful and informative breakfast event!
