In addition to our regular research and community presentations, EFP offers special services, such as economic impact studies, surveys, and public speaking engagements. These are done on a fee-for-service basis.

Public Speaking Engagements

Does your event need a speaker to provide an update on the local economy or to speak on a particular economic topic? We can help with that. Contact us for more information.

Commission an Impact Study

Economic impact studies analyze the likely employment, economic output, and tax effects of an event (e.g. a community festival or a natural disaster), or an existing or potential entity (e.g. a new business or development). See some of our past studies below.
