New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) Chief Economist Emeritus William Freund will deliver, “What is Ahead: A Focused Analysis of the RV Industry,” Thursday (Dec. 3) at 8 a.m. in the Kentucky Exposition Center’s South Wing Mezzanine Level Ballroom.

The Recreation Vehicle Industry Association (RVIA) has reduced the seminar fee to $40, ensuring that more 47th National RV Trade Show attendees will be able to attend the seminar for a detailed insider’s view of the state of the stock market and what’s ahead for the RV industry.

Freund, a world-renowned expert on productivity, the markets and globalization, will examine the economic crisis and how the ensuing plan to save the American economy has signaled an end to Wall Street as we know it and irrevocably altered the global business landscape. In a presentation tailored to the RV industry, he will discuss:

  • How the bailout and regulatory changes will impact the overall business community as Congress and the executive branch bring their legislative and policy powers to bear in the hopes of achieving increased transparency and accountability.
  • What is ahead for the RV industry in regard to the financial markets, financial services and banking.
  • The state of the stock market and analysis of issues that will dictate interest rates, the deficit and the future of trading markets.
  • Developments at NYSE and NASDAQ and the implications for the future.

Freund served as chief economist of the New York Stock Exchange for 18 years, and is an expert in analyzing financial markets and investing, providing up-to-the-minute relevant information about the challenges the RV industry is facing and transforming the most recent political and economic headlines into business and investment advice.

Attendees who have already registered and paid the original $70 fee will receive a refund automatically to reflect the reduced cost of the seminar and do not have to request a refund.

The seminar fee of $40 includes a full breakfast at 7:30 a.m. To order tickets, contact RVIA’s Show Department at (703) 620-6003. ext. 365.
