Future Forum Series

LAEDC’s Future Forums series includes four events each year that deep dive into burgeoning industries like transportation, cannabis, digital entertainment, aerospace, and others. As technological innovation and globalization take the economy in new directions, this region is destined to be an incubator for business opportunities. Each Future Forum will offer a chance to learn about the trends ahead, the workforce demands required and most importantly, the opportunities available ahead.

Our theme for this year, Pathways to a Carbon Neutral Economy, will focus on hydrogen, goods movement, and the green and blue economies. Save your seat for the Future of Goods Movement below!
