PBN’s 2020 Economic Trends Summit will feature Keynote Speaker Thomas Tzitzouris, Director at Strategas Research Partners, who will provide a comprehensive economic overview and forecast for 2020.

This will be followed by a panel discussion with local business experts from various industry sectors providing thoughts on the state’s business trends.


  • Where are we in the economic cycle and what can we expect in the near future?
  • Are there still fears of an economic recession and if so, is RI any better positioned to ride another recession than it has been in the past?
  • What important trends should businesses be paying close attention to?
  • How is low unemployment rate impacting talent acquisition and retention?
  • What are some of the top disruptor influences on the economy? And what are
    effective ways for businesses to adjust to them?
  • What are the short- and long-term consequences of the current U.S. trade policy and
    how do they affect local businesses?
  • How can national politics, including the impeachment hearings, the 2020 elections and the recent conflict with Iran effect the state economy?
