Ticket Sales Brisk for the 2010 Entrée to Business Luncheon Featuring Dr. Loren Scott Annual sell-out event comes at a critical time for Acadiana’s business decision-makers.

Scott built his career at LSU, where he is now professor emeritus of economics, and is widely considered the top resource in the state on economic matters.

Known for interpreting complex data into useful, accessible numbers, each year he publishes the widely anticipated Louisiana Economic Outlook in mid-October. Presented exclusively in Acadiana at the annual ABiz Entrée to Business Luncheon, his analysis and projections provide local business leaders with valuable information as they adopt budgets and strategies for the upcoming year. The event is slated for Tuesday, Oct. 12, at 11:45 a.m. at the Cajundome Convention Center, and although the full report covers the entire state, Scott’s presentation will focus on activity in the core Acadiana parishes. Each luncheon attendee will receive a CD of Scott’s full LEO report as well as his Acadiana-specific PowerPoint presentation, produced by Vidox Productions.  The Acadiana Economic Development Council is a sustaining sponsor of this event.

MidSouth Bank: Standing are Kevin Latiolais,
Beau Phares, Shiloh Kidder and Burt Ortego;
seated are Glenn Decou and Linda Terry.
Dwight Andrus Insurance: Standing are David Andrus, Reed Andrus,
Ashley Andrus and Dwight Andrus IV; seated are
Dwight Andrus III and Lynsey Andrus.

This event is a sell-out each year, and early ticket sales are brisk. Dwight Andrus Insurance and MidSouth Bank will join forces as presenting sponsors once again this year. “Dwight Andrus is particularly pleased to support this event at a time when our community is coping with the national political and economic climate, the effects of the BP oil spill and the resulting moratorium,” says Vice President David Andrus. “Dr. Scott’s analysis of our present economic situation and future outlook will provide each of us within the business community the insight to plan our continued business success.”

“The Entree to Business Luncheon is a continuation of MidSouth Bank’s commitment and ongoing efforts to inform business executives, political leaders and consumers about what we can expect for our economy in the next couple of years,” says Glenn Decou, regional president for MidSouth Bank. “We want all of these groups armed with the most up-to-date information out there so they can map out strategies that will keep our economy stable while we weather what is surely uncertain times ahead.”
