Boating Industry magazine named Elliott Eisenberg the keynote speaker for the first full day of its Elevate Summit. BI said Eisenberg will speak at 8 a.m. on Nov. 23 at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, Fla. Elevate runs from November 22-24.

“Elevate is designed for the top executives in the boating industry, and having Dr. Eisenberg on board will help us deliver the kind of information they need to run their businesses,” said Jonathan Sweet, managing director of Boating Industry’s shows and the Top 100 program. “Dr. Eisenberg not only knows his stuff, he also makes economics fun and interesting.”

Eisenberg, chief economist for GraphsandLaughs, specializes in “making economics fun, relevant and educational,” according to Sweet. He writes a syndicated column and authors a daily 70-word commentary on the economy that is available at econ70.com.

“I am already very excited to be part of the 2019 Boating Industry Elevate conference,” Eisenberg said. “There will be great educational and networking opportunities that should not be missed by anyone in the industry.”

Eisenberg has spoken to hundreds of business groups. His research and opinions have been featured in Bloomberg Businessweek, Bureau of National Affairs, Forbes, Fortune and other publications. He is a regularly featured guest on cable news programs, and talk and public radio.
