Business Attraction & Retention
Each year the Long Beach Economic Partnership looks forward to hosting the Accelerate Long Beach Economic Forum in partnership with the City of Long Beach and California State University Long Beach. The CSULB Office of Economic Research provides a robust forecast on the key regional and local issues to be addressed in developing a resilient and equitable economy. The forecast highlights critical concerns industry and employers face and underscores how national policies and events impact local growth and opportunities.
The City of Long Beach joins LBEP in hosting this important annual activity at the Long Beach Convention Center where we bring together the top business and industry leaders to share in this important discussion.
In addition, this year under the new leadership of Mayor Rex Richardson, we are excited to share the release of a series of new Industry Profiles across six key sectors including – Outer Space (space beach), Transportation, logistics and goods movement, Tourism and Hospitality, Healthcare, Education and the Creative Economy as well as promote the Mayor’s Grow Long Beach initiative.
