Tampa Mayor Bob Buckhorn, Clearwater Mayor George Cretekos, and St. Petersburg Chair Darden Rice will appear at CREW Tampa Bay’s 9th Annual Economic Summit, providing their economic outlook while discussing challenges ahead including housing, transit, commerce and economy throughout the Bay area.
The event, hosted by CREW Tampa Bay, will take place at the Hilton Tampa Downtown on Tuesday, June 6. Networking starts at 11:30 a.m., and the lunch program will be held from noon until 2 p.m.
“The CREW Tampa Bay Economic Summit is the preeminent event in Tampa Bay focusing on our economy and our community. It’s the perfect opportunity not only to get a better grasp on how the economy is doing but also hear first-hand the perspective of our area’s local leaders and to ask questions said Anne Pollack, CREW Tampa Bay President and Attorney at Law with Fletcher & Fischer, P.L. “These leaders play pivotal roles in our economic development and in the future of our region, and the Economic Summit will offer a rare opportunity to hear from all of them at once.”
The event will also include a presentation by economist Anirban Basu, CEO of Sage Policy Group, Inc., who will offer his views on how the overall U.S. economy is faring, and how it reflects on the Tampa Bay area. Basu’s Baltimore-based company does consulting work for a wide variety of clients including: developers, brokerages, law firms and bankers.
“Economic and financial dynamics have shifted given the new administration in Washington, D.C.,” Basu said. “While many are excited about the pro-business agenda being implemented in the nation’s capital, others have become more cautious in light of growing flux in the policy environment. My presentation will focus on shifting market dynamics, their prospective impacts on national and regional economies as well as upon commercial real estate dynamics.”
