Power Breakfast focused on industry rescheduled for May


A 2020 Power Breakfast focused on South Louisiana’s industrial sector that was planned for April has been rescheduled for Thursday, May 14.

The event was postponed from its original April 1 date out of concern for the health and safety of attendees and the larger community. The decision also complies with Gov. John Bel Edwards’s decree banning all gatherings of more than 50 people.

The event is hosted by Baton Rouge Business Report, sister publication to 10/12 Industry Report.

The event will provide an outlook for the U.S. and Louisiana chemical industry. A panel discussion will cover the global economic outlook and its implications for Louisiana, how Gulf Coast refineries and chemical plants are in a position for meeting global energy demands, digital manufacturing, navigating regulatory issues, surviving the new offshore reality, infrastructure issues, talent recruitment, the impact of the coronavirus and more.

Sponsored by Jones Walker law firm, Cox and LaPorte CPAs & Business Advisors, the event will take place Thursday, May 14 at the Baton Rouge Marriott, 5500 Hilton Ave. Doors open at 7:30 a.m.; the program begins at 8 a.m. Seating is limited; tickets are $30 each, with Business Report INSIDERS receiving a 40% discount on tickets using a special promo code sent via email.
