Did you miss our annual forecasting event, Launch 2023 presented by Wells Fargo? Business and community leaders from around the Triangle gathered at the Duke Energy Center for the Performing Arts on Jan. 4 to hear trends and predictions for the New Year as we discussed topics including the economy, commercial real estate, economic development, talent, and regional demographics.
“If it seems like we’ve been on a roller coaster ride in the U.S. economy in the past few years, it’s because we have been.”
Sarah House of Wells Fargo
