UGA’s Georgia Economic Outlook returns to in-person events, delivering business intelligence for the new year

2022 Georgia Economic Outlook provides essential insights for informed decisions 


As Georgia emerges from two years of economic uncertainty, University of Georgia Terry College of Business experts will address Georgia’s recovery from the COVID-19 recession, the booming housing market and what to expect in the year to come at the 39th annual Georgia Economic Outlook series.


The state’s premier economic forecasting series — coming to eight Georgia cities — will return to its traditional format of luncheon programs this winter. Networking begins at 11:30 a.m., and the programs begin at 12:30 p.m.


The statewide tour will kick off Dec. 13 in Atlanta. Keynote speaker Mark Vitner, managing director and senior economist at Wells Fargo, will deliver the national forecast, and Terry College of Business Dean Benjamin C. Ayers will deliver the state forecast. The tour will continue onto seven more stops in January and February, where attendees will hear forecasts from local experts. Registration is open for all dates.
