In January, the Bismarck Mandan Chamber distributed a survey for the 6th year to gauge business performance in the Bismarck-Mandan area and national level. Join us again for the 2018 Economic Outlook Forum on Thursday, March 15th at the Ramkota Hotel & Conference Center to find out what factors are influencing the local and the national economy. This half day presentation will feature a large panel of professionals, in a variety of different industries that will inform us on the current community.

Find out what our community business leaders are saying about the topics covered in our survey: 2017 performance, anticipated performance of 2018 and reasons attributed for successes and challenges for our local businesses. Some of the key economic indicators:
  • Technology changes
  • Economic Forecast

  • Commercial Real Estate 
  • State and federal government regulations
Don’t miss out on this opportunity to hear from experts in their industries, listen to a variety of panelists and see the valuable survey data first hand.
