ECIA Executive Conference Committee Announces Economic Forecast Speaker
Alex Chausovsky, Director of Analytics and Consulting for the Bundy Group will share economic data.

Atlanta — ECIA’s 2024 Executive Conference Committee is pleased to announce it has named the critical economic forecast keynote presenter for the conference scheduled for October 20-22 at the Loew’s Chicago O’Hare. Alex Chausovsky is a highly experienced market researcher and analyst with more than two decades of expertise across subjects including economics, manufacturing, automation, advanced technology trends, and business cycle analysis. He has consulted and advised companies throughout the US and Canada, Europe, South America, and Asia. Alex's analysis has been featured in the Wall Street Journal, on the BBC, and on NPR, and he is a Top Voice on LinkedIn.

Alex’ talk is titled, Economic and Labor Market Update – A Shift in Momentum. “The US macro economy is firmly on the back side of the business cycle while several industrial sectors are traversing a mild recession,” he explained. “Aggressive interest rate policy decisions by the Fed mostly stamped out inflation, but they also stifled capital investment. Despite a resilient labor market, cracks are visible in the armor of US consumers, with delinquency rates for credit cards and auto loans flashing warning signs. On top of it all, it’s a presidential election year, which adds its own flavor of uncertainty. What does all this mean for our industry? This presentation will deliver practical and actionable advice designed to help business leaders and key decision makers plan for future economic conditions and continuously improve their organization’s strategic planning initiatives,” he concluded.

“Each year, the economic forecast presentation is one of the most highly rated sessions of the conference,” noted Stephanie Tierney, ECIA’s Director of Member Engagement. “Attendees rely on accurate forecast analysis to develop their strategic plans for the coming year. We are fortunate to secure Alex Chausovsky, a well-known economics expert, who is also familiar with the technology industry.”

This year’s theme is ‘Navigating the Tides of Change,” reflecting the committee’s forward-looking vision for the conference program. Registration is now open; early discounts are available to those who can plan ahead.
