AEDC luncheons are the largest sit-down business events in Alaska. A perennial sell-out, the Economic Forecast Luncheon is attended by over 1,500 industry leaders, C-suite executives, senior staff, business owners, independent contractors and young professionals.

While we would love to see all of your faces in-person soon, we are committed to keeping all of our attendees, sponsors and stakeholders safe and healthy.
