Woodland Hills, CA (PRWEB) January 30, 2013
Infocast, a leading provider of business intelligence conferences in a wide array of industry verticals, is pleased to announce its inaugural Midwest Reshoring Summit: Bringing Manufacturing Back to the U.S. The Summit will take place March 12-14, 2013 at the Cleveland Marriott Downtown at Key Center in Cleveland, OH.
Recent studies have found that up to 40% of manufacturing firms are considering the movement of manufacturing plants back to the U.S. This trend, coinciding with the lower costs related to the shale gas boom in Ohio and Pennsylvania, as well as increasing innovation in automation, and a consequent reduction in the importance of low cost labor, is leading many manufacturers to seriously consider bringing production back home.
Infocast’s Reshoring Summit is the only event bringing together stakeholders across the spectrum – manufacturers and their suppliers, governmental development organizations, site selectors and consultants – for the chance to dig into the issues, learn through case studies and interactive panels, meet with key leaders in the reshoring community and build valuable relationships through critically- informed networking. The summit faculty includes Harry Moser of The Reshoring Initiative, Walter Snodell of Peerless Industries, Tobias Schoenherr from Michigan State University, Hope Paolini of Suarez Manufacturing, Scott Paul from the Alliance for American Manufacturing, Kristi Tanner from Jobs Ohio, and many more!
Don’t miss our Navigating the Site Selection Process Pre-Summit Workshop, led by Eric Hochstein of Highstone Associates and including speakers from Austin Consulting, The Kinnett Consulting Group and Ice Miller Whiteboard. The workshop will guide you through numerous practical factors that are integral to the reshoring decision-making process.
