John Calamos Joins Experts in Offering Business Advice at "Economic Forecast 2020" Event

The business opportunities arising from an era of political and economic volatility will be examined at a high-level conference of financial experts, including John P. Calamos Sr., the founder, Chairman and Global Chief Investment Officer of Calamos Investments.

The 12th Annual Economic Forecast, organized by the Naperville Area Chamber of Commerce and Calamos Investments, will be held  from 4 PM to 7 PM on Wednesday, Oct. 30, at Hotel Arista in Naperville, IL.

The Naperville Area Chamber of Commerce is the largest suburban chamber in Illinois with an active membership of 1,200 organizations of every size and from every sector.

Calamos will share insight and analyses of market conditions for the coming year and give attendees the information they need to better prepare and manage their businesses.

“Fears of slowing global growth, escalating trade tensions, falling rates across the world, concerns that the Federal Reserve may be less responsive than required, and mounting political uncertainty set the stage for continued market volatility,” says Calamos.

“However there are opportunities amid the volatility, so expect them to be in the spotlight at this year’s Forecast event,” he adds on a positive note.

Financial expert Terry Savage will return as session moderator. A best-selling author, regular guest on CNN and CBS, and a Chicago Tribune columnist, Savage helps consumers make sense of the markets and the economy.

“Terry does an exceptional job of working with panelists to dispense the information that is important to the future of business,” says NACC President and CEO Nicki Anderson.

Joining Calamos on the panel of experts are Gus Faucher, Chief Economist for PNC Financial Services Group, and Caroline Harris, Vice President, Tax Policy & Chief Tax Policy Counselor for the US Chamber of Commerce, the world’s largest business federation.

“Every year we look forward to the insight and expertise that John Calamos and other elite panelists bring to the table,” said Anderson. “This event is one of the most anticipated with our chamber members simply because we have revered experts identifying how the future economy will impact our businesses, locally and globally.”

The Hotel Arista is located at CITYGATE, 2139 CityGate Lane in Naperville. Check-in and cocktails will begin at 4 PM and the program will start promptly at 4:30 PM.
