Where is Lafayette's economy headed?

by Leslie Turk

Find out May 9 at noon. On Thursday, May 9, at noon Lafayette Economic Development Authority President and CEO Gregg Gothreaux will follow up on one of the most talked about business events of 2012 when he presents his second annual State of the Economy report.

Presented by ABiz, this presentation will provide a first look at LEDA's 2013 Lafayette Economic Performance Index, a dashboard summary that compiles 1,500 data points into 15 key statistics that provide instant insight into the current state of the local economy. Gothreaux's synopsis will provide the comprehensive view that is so important to business decision-makers charting the future of their businesses and Acadiana's opportunities for growth.

Gothreaux will also spotlight regional trends in adjoining parishes that are members of the Acadiana Economic Development Council, the luncheon's presenting sponsor.

The result? The most efficient download of economic performance data available for south Louisiana.

Gothreaux will deliver his presentation at the Cajundome Convention Center. Tickets to the luncheon are $45 or $395 for a table of eight. Contact Robin Hebert for tickets at [email protected] or (337) 769-8603.

ASLR is supporting sponsor for this event.
