Glen Weisbrod led a presentation on Scenario Planning at the 2018 Annual Conference of the International Economic Development Council.  The conference – the largest of its kind in the world -- had over 1,000  economic developers participate in interactive sessions on the future of economic development. Glen gave a presentation and led a workshop style panel discussion on the use of predictive analytics to support strategic economic development.

The presentation showed the dangers of failure to adequately consider future scenarios – in the form of missed opportunities and stranded investments. It showed how the TREDPLAN system of predictive analytics could be used in a regional economic development strategy by showing the potential upside and downside for key industries in a single region – as a consequence of climate change, technology development and political tariff policies.
