41st ANNUAL KANSAS ECONOMIC OUTLOOK CONFERENCE
Thursday, October 8, 2020 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 750 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.
COVID-19 - Flex Registration
CEDBR is continuing to watch and plan for potential Covid-19 disruptions to our scheduled events. In order to prepare for any outcome, CEDBR has decided to introduce flex registration. With flex registration, all attendees will be automatically registered in an in-person and webinar format. On the day of the event, you can choose either format to attend. We are looking forward to meeting and networking in-person, but we feel it is important to be prepared with a social distancing option. Just click the flex registration button below to reserve your seat.

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.

Rate Increases to $185 on 9/10/2020
