LAEDC’s 2016-2020 Fall Economic Forecast, “From Boomers to Millennials: The Future of the Urban Environment” will provide long-range, socio-economic analysis to inform your business decisions and guide regional planning. The program will explore what futurists, LAEDC economists, and demographers are predicting. Millennials now outnumber Boomers, and this is impacting transit-oriented development, effectiveness of your marketing messages, and the importance of your organization’s positive social impact. Millennials also value access over ownership, and are using things “on demand” rather than buying them, they use of technology for…well…everything, and they would rather give up their car than their phone. In fact, the live-work-play mindset of Millennials is impacting workplace design, residential design, and the desire for “complete” neighborhoods with better access to shared amenities and entertainment.
How will your organization respond to all these shifts? Come to this event to gain insight.
Gain insight on:
- The changing of the guard: Millennials are profoundly different from Baby Boomers, and their impact is increasing. What does this mean to your organization and the region?
- The 5-year economic outlook for LA County and the broader economy
- How will market forces and the generational shift affect our future urban environment, the workforce, and the key industries of our region?
LAEDC economists and recognized speakers will do a deeper-dive analysis of the changing tide of demographics:
- How will our consumer-driven economy be impacted as Millennials choose new purchasing platforms, reject traditional marketing, and invest differently?
- How will motivational factors for Millennials such as societal impact and their tech-savvy, hyper-connected ways change the urban fabric and business conditions?
- Will workforce development, job training and education platforms adapt to serve Millennials?
- What will Baby Boomer healthcare and retirement patterns mean to the region and the broader economy, and how will businesses respond?
