Part 2: Futurist and Business Perspectives on the Economy
Tuesday, Aug. 25
At our second Recovery Seattle event, we explored where we are in the recovery and how the Seattle-area economy is positioned compared to other regions.
As one of the nation’s top-performing commercial real estate markets over the previous decade, what does the future hold for Seattle’s CRE industry? As we begin to open back up, how are other sectors impacted and how will the business community and public adapt? What exactly is our new normal, and how far do we have to go to get there? We gathered an economist, futurist and business leader to take an in-depth look at these issues and more.

How can we come out of this current economic downturn in a way that benefits all?
