There’s no telling exactly what the future holds, but getting a grasp on what’s in store in 2013 is what this year’s San Diego Business Journal Economic Trends event is all about.

San Diego Business Journal Publisher Randy Frisch is moderating the event that begins at 7:30 a.m. Jan. 3 and runs to 10 a.m. at the Hilton San Diego Resort & Spa in Mission Bay.

In its ninth year, Economic Trends assembles a panel of experts in their fields who provide some insight into what’s occurred in the past year, and what will likely occur this year. This year’s panelists are Mark Vitner of Wells Fargo, Trindl Reeves of Barney & Barney, Tom van Betten of Cassidy Turley San Diego, Mary Ann Barnes of Kaiser Permanente and Sid Tobiason of Moss Adams LLP.

The event includes breakfast.
