Press release from the issuing company

Join us for the Economic Outlook Webinar with Dr. Joe Webb, Sponsored by the WhatTheyThink Speakers Bureau

Lexington, Kentucky USA -- WhatTheyThink.com today announced the opportunity for industry professionals to attend a free printing industry economic webinar with forecaster and commentator Dr. Joe Webb. The event will be held Wednesday, December 8th, from 2:00 to 3:00 pm EST (-5 GMT).

No-charge registration is available at the webinar registration page.

During this one-hour event, Dr. Joe will present the latest economic outlook for 2011 as well as offer a quick view of what to expect in 2012.  He will also share WhatTheyThink’s latest print business conditions survey and talk about the potential impact of the November elections. Advance questions for the webinar Q&A session can be submitted by visiting WhatTheyThink’s Economics & Research Center and selecting “Ask Dr. Joe.”

“While the recession has been declared over,” said Randy Davidson, President, WhatTheyThink, “the recovery is certainly shaky.  Businesses need all the insight they can get from reliable sources such as Dr. Webb in their planning for 2011 and beyond.”

“There's an intensely dynamic period ahead in in the next few months as the technology, economic, and political arenas all interact. Media will undergo a significant shift with a flood of tablet computers to compete with the iPad, more action in the e-book market, and some amazing things happening with smartphones and other mobile technology,” said Dr. Webb. “That’s why it's essential that a media outlook is part of this session. There are many opportunities ahead for printers and their clients in these markets. We'll cut through to the bottom line issues that printers and industry suppliers need to know. I'll also share my latest collection of must-read articles and books for the winter season.”

Specifically, he will discuss:

  • The latest economic forecast for 2011 with a brief look at 2012
  • How November's election results may (or may not) play out for the economy
  • The media outlook for 2011
  • Our latest survey of printers' business conditions and their plans for 2011
  • A strategic winter reading list to curl up with in front of the fire

“As we near the end of the year, it is more important than ever to focus on how to ensure that 2011 and beyond offers  a successful transformation for our industry.  Dr. Webb’s insight is always helpful as managers and owners ponder the future,” added Davidson. “This session will be available in the archive, along with all of our other educational sessions, so business owners and managers can revisit the content at any time, and share it with their staffs and key clients.”
