Our region’s economy has been shaken by inflation, lingering concerns about commercial real estate after the pandemic, and shocks to global markets over the last year. What will 2023 look like for businesses and residents of the greater Dayton area? What will be the areas of local growth and what challenges should we expect?

January’s Community Conversation on the Dayton Daily News Facebook page on Jan. 25 focused on the region’s economic outlook for 2023 and beyond.

The discussion was co-hosted by Community Impact Editor Nick Hrkman and Reporter Lynn Hulsey and featured expert panelists from around our region to help answer your questions about our local economy, including:

  • Greg Blatt, President of Dayton Realtors
  • Dave Dickerson, President of the Midwest Market at Miller-Valentine Construction
  • LeKeisha Grant, Commercialization Program Manager at The Entrepreneurs’ Center
  • Stephanie Keinath, Vice President for Strategic Initiatives with the Dayton Area Chamber of Commerce
