March 2015 Economic Outlook

“There’s no business like show business” is never so true as it is today in California. This signature industry has been and continues to be a driver of economic growth and vitality. But for how long? Big financial incentives from New Mexico, Georgia, Canada and elsewhere are chipping away at California's competitive advantage. From digitization, to subsidies, to cyber attacks, the industry is in flux. In this conference, experts from across the spectrum of entertainment will discuss the important trends and what they mean for the local economy and the industry.
