Philadelphia, PA (PRWEB) October 8, 2008
Pembroke Consulting today announced a new webcast, The 2009 Economic Forecast for Wholesale Distribution, to help wholesaler-distributors plan in this uncertain economy. This 90-minute live webcast will take place on November 13, 2008. Online registration is available at http://www.mdm.com/2009forecast.
The webcast will feature Adam J. Fein, Ph.D., one of the country’s foremost experts on distribution channel economics. Dr. Fein will explain the impact of the current financial crisis on the wholesale distribution industry, discuss how economic trends are shaping up for wholesaler-distributors in 2009, and provide detailed quantitative forecasts for each of the 19 major wholesale distribution sectors. All attendees will receive an exclusive written report with all data and forecasts.
“Revenues of wholesaler-distributors grew by only 1.5 percent in the first half of 2008 after adjusting for price inflation,” said Dr. Fein. “The information and data in this webcast will help wholesale distribution executives develop effective strategies for surviving the economic slowdown and credit crunch.”
This event is being underwritten in part by IBM Corporation and produced by Modern Distribution Management. An archived recording of the event will be available through the end of 2008 at http://www.mdm.com/2009forecast.
“This event will help wholesale distribution executives refine their 2009 business plans to help address the challenging economic times which are upon us,” said Mike Briglia, Vice President - Wholesale Distribution/CPG Industry at IBM. “We encourage wholesaler-distributors to bring their entire management team to this important webcast.”
