This half-day seminar highlights the latest economic trends for local economies and the state of Montana.
Why Attend EOS 2019?
BBER economists present national, state and local economic forecasts for each seminar city and industry experts will give their outlook for Montana’s important sectors, including tourism, health care, real estate and housing, agriculture, manufacturing, energy and forest products.
EOS 2019 will travel to nine cities across the state and provide a live webcast for other regions. This year we will visit Helena, Great Falls, Missoula, Billings, Bozeman, Butte, Kalispell, Sidney and Miles City, Montana.
Buying a house in Montana can be hard. A recent Gallup study found 45 percent of Montanans were dissatisfied with the availability of good affordable housing. This tied Montana with Maryland and Oregon for eighth worst in the country.
For the 43rd year, the Bureau of Business and Economic Research traveled to nine cities across Montana to deliver its annual assessment of economic activity in the state. The 2018 Economic Outlook Seminar covered a wide range of topics from higher education to housing and tourism.
