Atlanta, GA - The ECIA Executive Conference planning committee is pleased to announce that registration is now open for its flagship event at the Lowes Chicago-O'hare Hotel on October 22-24, 2017. The ECIA Executive Conference is the only conference where senior management teams from the electronics industry's leading companies - representing the entire supply chain - gather to understand and address cross-enterprise challenges. Here's where you can gain access to industry experts and knowledge, forge the relationships that can make a real difference, and learn how to remove roadblocks to success. This key conference comes just in time for 2018 strategic planning, offering macro and micro economic forecast data and an industry-specific, results-oriented program laser-focused on the industry-specific challenges that keep managers in the components industry up at night.
"We are very grateful to the planning committee and especially its Chairman, Blair Haas of Bud Industries, for all their hard work and all-around brilliance in putting together this year's program," noted Debbie Conyers, ECIA vice president of member engagement. "It's always an intense process, but this committee was very efficient and professional."
Starting with the economy, two returning speakers address both the big picture and our specific industry: Jim Doti of Chapman University and Nick Hawtrey, Allied Electronics. Dr. Doti returns to explore the impact of fiscal and monetary policies on real GDP, interest rates, employment and housing prices in 2018. Particular attention will be given to how Trumpenomics is affecting the overall economy. Learn how U.S. economic trends impact manufacturing and gain critical insight for 2018 strategic planning. Once again, Dr. Doti’s U.S. economic forecast is complemented by Nick Hawtrey’s take on the impact of these trends on the global components industry. As chief financial officer for Allied Electronics, Nick is responsible for all the financial elements of the company and brings a uniquely qualified perspective on both the current year and the outlook going forward.
