Naperville (IL) Area Chamber of Commerce and Calamos Investments Present The 12th Annual Economic Forecast
The Naperville Area Chamber of Commerce (NACC) and Calamos Investments will co-host the 12th Annual Economic Forecast from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 30, at Hotel Arista in Naperville, IL. The program features a panel of local and national financial experts, including John P. Calamos Sr., Founder, Chairman and Global Chief Investment Officer at Calamos Investments, who will share insight and analyses of market conditions for the coming year and giving attendees the information they need to better prepare and manage their business.
“Fears of slowing global growth, escalating trade tensions, falling rates across the world, concerns that the Federal Reserve may be less responsive than required, and mounting political uncertainty set the stage for continued market volatility,” says Calamos. “However there are opportunities amid the volatility, so expect them to be in the spotlight at this year’s Forecast event.”
Financial expert Terry Savage will return as session moderator. A best-selling author, regular guest on CNN and CBS, and a Chicago Tribune columnist, Savage helps consumers make sense of the markets and the economy.
“Terry does an exceptional job of working with panelists to dispense the information that is important to the future of business,” said NACC President and CEO Nicki Anderson.
Joining Calamos on the expert panel are Gus Faucher, Chief Economist for the PNC Financial Services Group, and Caroline L. Harris, Vice President, Tax Policy & Chief Tax Policy Counselor for the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, the world’s largest business federation.
“Every year we look forward to the insight and expertise that Mr. Calamos and other elite panelists bring to the table,” said Anderson. “This event is one of the most anticipated with our chamber members simply because we have revered experts identifying how the future economy will impact our businesses, locally and globally.
