Why attend the Antelope Valley Board of Trade’s 46th Business Outlook Conference?
A better question would be: Why wouldn’t you?
The who’s-who of the Antelope Valley business community will come together March 2 at the Antelope Valley Fairgrounds in Lancaster to reconnect with old friends and colleagues, forge new relationships, and learn from various speakers and some 40 vendors at the AVBOT’s marquee annual event.
“This is the networking event of the year here,” AVBOT Executive Director Anna Lee Buehn said. “You’ll have access to every decision-maker in the Antelope Valley – all in the same place, for this one day.”
Nevada-based legal analyst Bob Massi, whose weekly show, “The Property Man,” airs each Friday night on the Fox Business Network, will deliver the event’s keynote presentation to close the all-day event.
In addition to highlighting real estate news, trends and developments on his weekly show, Massi has been a regular contributor to Fox News Channel since 1996. He’s reported on some of the country’s most high-profile court cases – from Michael Jackson to Robert Blake to Casey Anthony – and built a reputation as one of the nation’s leading experts on the law.
He also has a regular Thursday spot on “Fox & Friends” during which he reports on trending legal and real estate issues.
At the Outlook, themed this year around “Small Business, BIG Results,” Massi will share the principles he’s used to build his brand while encouraging resilience, persistence and positive thinking, Buehn said.
The Outlook’s list of featured speakers will also include:
– Jane Mosbacher Morris, founder and CEO of TO THE MARKET, whose mission is to economically empower vulnerable women through artisan enterprise.
– Jill Donovan, owner and CEO of Rustic Cuff, which sells its unique variety of jewelry in more than 250 stores across the United States.
– Richard J. Simmons, a partner in the law firm of Sheppard, Mullin, Richter and Hampton, LLP, who has established himself as one of the state’s most recognized employment lawyers.
– Ronald J. Epstein, a New York-based analyst for Bank of America/Merrill Lynch who specializes in equity research in U.S. and global aerospace, defense and industrial companies.
The Outlook’s premier sponsors this year are Los Angeles County, the city of Lancaster, Antelope Valley Hospital and Bank of America/Merrill Lynch.
