The Connecticut Economy

ABOUT THIS EVENT

Gov. Ned Lamont and GOP challenger Bob Stefanowski headline this year’s Connecticut Economy conference.

How do the two major party candidates for Connecticut governor plan to steer the state’s post-pandemic economic recovery and growth?

Find out September 23 at the 2022 Connecticut Economy conference, as Democratic incumbent Gov. Ned Lamont and GOP challenger Bob Stefanowski share their economic visions ahead of the November elections.

This year’s conference features critical discussions about the state’s recovery and how companies are addressing inflation, the labor shortage, supply chain disruptions, and other challenges.

We’ll release the results of our annual survey of Connecticut businesses, produced in collaboration with Marcum LLP, featuring important insights into the state’s economy.

A panel of business leaders go behind the survey results with Marcum’s Michael Brooder, examining the ways companies are navigating the post-COVID world.

And McKinsey & Company economist Ezra Greenberg breaks down the state and national economic picture and shares his outlook for the recovery.
