Renowned LSU economics professor Dr. Loren Scott is presenting his 2013 Louisiana Economic Outlook report to a sold-out crowd Thursday for the ninth annual ABiz Entree to Business event.

Known for translating complex data into useful, accessible numbers, Scott’s economic forecast focuses on both Louisiana and Acadiana, providing an invaluable tool for local business leaders trying to plan for the next fiscal year.

Scott’s findings are first presented in Baton Rouge every year and later in Lafayette as an ABiz exclusive.

Sponsors for Thursday’s breakfast, scheduled for 7:30 a.m. at the Cajundome Convention Center, are MidSouth Bank and Dwight Andrus Insurance, with Cane River Pecans and The Acadiana Economic Development Council serving as supporting sponsors.

Following this year’s presentation, a copy of Scott’s LEO report will be emailed to all in attendance at Thursday’s breakfast thanks to Vidox Motion Imagery, the event’s digital media sponsor.
