Stone Energy President and CEO Dave Welch will be the keynote speaker at the 6th Annual Acadiana Commercial Outlook on Thursday, April 7, at LITE. Welch will open the program, which runs from 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.
Because of the impact the decline in the oil prices has had on the local economy, Welch will explain how this downturn is different from those in the past and what the outlook is for the remainder of 2016.
The seminar will be moderated by Monty Warren of Beau Box Commercial Real Estate.
Representatives from One Acadiana will close the seminar, discussing the Louisiana Economic Development Certified Sites Program. A Certified Site is one that is a development-ready industrial site, meaning it has been through a thorough review process in order to reduce the unknowns and mitigate some of the risk involved in the site selection process. Certified sites give Acadiana better opportunities for new projects and expansions.
