Tickets, sponsorships and expo spaces are now on sale for the 33rd annual IWV Economic Outlook Conference, scheduled for Thursday, Feb. 27, from 8 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. at the Kerr McGee Center.

Each year the Ridgecrest Chamber of Commerce stages the event to give local stakeholders an opportunity to hear from elected, military, community and business leaders.

This year’s lineup features the return of Economist Mark Schniepp, who gave a popular presentation last year on economic prospects of the nation, state and region. This year he will focus on data more specific to the Ridgecrest community.

Attendees will also hear speakers on subjects ranging from finance to real estate to education to the Navy’s work at China Lake.

Tickets are available for $40 per chamber member and $45 per nonmember. Tables of eight can be reserved for $300 for members or $350 for nonmembers. Sponsorship opportunities ranging from $250 to $2,500 are also available.

A local business looking to raise its profile in the community can acquire a space in the Business Expo for $250 (member) or $300 (nonmember).
