Next week is sure to be exciting for the manufacturing community as key reshoring leaders and U.S. manufacturing stakeholders gather in Cleveland, Ohio for the inaugural Reshoring Summit: Bringing Manufacturing Back to the U.S. Presented by Infocast, the event will take place at the Cleveland Marriott Downtown in the Key Center March 12-14.
Being the first national event of its kind, The Reshoring Summit will focus solely on the issues surrounding the reshoring movement and serve as a unique opportunity for manufacturers to discover the benefits of making better sourcing decisions. Over the three days, we (the reshoring community) will engage in discussions with manufacturers, suppliers, governmental development organizations, site selectors and others in attendance. The event will also serve as a platform for building valuable relationships and learning how to sell against offshore competitors while attracting, obtaining and retaining companies to their regions.
As part of the educational sessions, case study reviews and interactive panels, I will deliver the opening day presentation on establishing the proper procedures when considering reshoring. The two-hour session will take a closer look at what factors companies must evaluate when making manufacturing and sourcing decisions. One factor that is frequently overlooked is the total cost of offshoring, easily done with our free Total Cost of Ownership Estimator™. The presentation will also cover the cost components necessary for determining accurate financial scenarios – many of which are ignored when making sourcing and investing decisions.
Other Reshoring Summit faculty and distinguished reshoring colleagues include Walter Snodell, Tobais Schoenherr, Hope Paolini, Scott Paul and Kristi Tanner. For more information and to register, please visit: www.infocastinc.com/reshoring.
