42nd ANNUAL KANSAS ECONOMIC OUTLOOK CONFERENCE
Thursday, October 7, 2021 from 7:30-11:30 AM
Century II Convention Center

225 W Douglas Ave, Wichita, Ks 67202

For a glimpse into Kansas' economic future, over 700 business leaders turn to Wichita State University, the W. Frank Barton School of Business, and the Center for Economic Development and Business Research (CEDBR), founders of the Kansas Economic Outlook Conference.

The purpose of the conference is to provide insight into current local, state, and national economies, addressing topics of interest to the community. A combination of nationally known speakers and local experts will be on hand to provide perspectives on issues affecting business, industry, education and government.

 
COVID-19 - Registration
CEDBR is continuing to watch and plan for potential COVID-19 disruptions to our scheduled events. The 2021 Kansas Economic Outlook Conference will be held in-person only at this time. We will continue to monitor the COVID-19 restrictions as the event gets closer. If we are unable to meet in-person due to regulations, we will do the event via webinar. We are looking forward to meeting and networking in-person, but we feel it is essential to be prepared if we must do the event remote this year. CLICK HERE to see more on our COVID-19 safety measures.
