Woodland Hills, CA (PRWEB) May 16, 2013
Infocast, the leading producer of cutting-edge business intelligence and networking events, is set to host Nearshoring Mexico 2013 on June 11-13, 2013 in Dallas, Texas. The 3-day summit will consist of two compelling events: “Nearshoring Mexico 2013” on June 11-12, 2013 and “Nearshoring Mexico Transportation and Logistics,” which will take place on June 13, 2013.
Rising costs and challenges of offshoring are driving manufacturing executives to shift their attention to the many advantages of nearshoring to Mexico, such as cost savings, improved speed to market and intellectual property protection. While an attractive destination of choice, as demonstrated by the strong push by companies in the aerospace, auto, consumer products and electronics industries to move manufacturing operations there, nearshoring to Mexico requires careful planning and the establishment of new relationships. Only the best informed will be able to avoid common pitfalls and maximize the opportunities offered by nearshoring their operations to Mexico.
Infocast’s Nearshoring Mexico 2013 was designed to provide attendees with valuable information and contacts to support good decision-making and networking opportunities. The Summit will address the entire spectrum of issues that will need to be considered in order make informed decisions in nearshoring, including site selection, labor, transportation and logistics, supply chain and security.
Manufacturers will receive a comprehensive analysis on the infrastructure and the trucking, rail and port capabilities that are available in Mexico, as well as valuable insights on the best practices for border crossing.
Nearshoring Mexico 2013 will provide a powerful opportunity to meet and establish relationships with potential partners such as state government development organizations, site selectors, transportation and logistics providers and supply chain partners.
Speakers at the event include representatives from Foxconn, The Borderplex Alliance, Flextronics International, AMPIP/Mexican Association of Industrial Parks, DHL Supply Chain, State of Guanajuato, Index, GE Healthcare-Border Operations, Tijuana State Government, Government of Hidalgo and others.
