AWFS®Fair 2021 Keynote Presentation
Be Careful What You Wish For: Economy in Recovery
Thursday, July 22 at 8:00 a.m.
Las Vegas Convention Center, room W326
Join economist Dr. Chris Kuehl as he provides some insight into the economic factors affecting our industry. The boom has been as dramatic as the bust of last year and this has been welcome news, but every silver lining has a dark cloud and this time, it is inflation. We have not really dealt with inflation since the 1990s and many of us are out of practice. This time there are some unusual aspects, and of course, we still have the old issues to deal with: pandemic-related economics, labor shortages, a collapsed supply chain, and more. This event is FREE to all registered AWFS®Fair exhibitors and attendees; session registration is not required.
