REMI is pleased to announce that it will be holding the Amherst Educational Conference on June 21-22 at our headquarters located at 433 West Street, Amherst, Massachusetts. The conference will explore how to produce comprehensive economic and demographic analysis using the most up-to-date REMI modeling software.
New and long-time users are encouraged to attend this conference. You’ll receive extensive access to our economists and development staff, including one-on-one discussions. This is also a great opportunity for those clients who have recently added staff members that would benefit from a hands-on introduction to dynamic economic modeling and the specifics of REMI’s methodology.
This conference looks to develop a greater understanding of the REMI suite of models with an in-depth walk-through of the capabilities of the premier tool in economic modeling. The various uses and underpinnings of PI+, TranSight, and others will be outlined and analyzed. In addition, there will be a preview to our new 2.2 model series set to be released this summer.
Participants have the opportunity to enhance their forecasting skills and study best practices in REMI modeling in order to be better prepared for our shifting political climate. Our staff looks forward to assisting all users from the recently hired to the most experienced.
