Atlanta, GA - ECIA is pleased to announce that respected industry veteran, Phil Gallagher, will headline this year's 2018 Executive Conference October 21-23 at Loews Chicago O'Hare Hotel in Rosemont, IL. Gallagher is the global president for the electronic components business at Avnet. He leads the company’s broadline distribution business with four regional presidents reporting to him -- spanning the Americas, Europe and Asia. He also oversees supplier relationships, global procurement, and supply chain services. Gallagher’s keynote presentation will focus on the opportunities as well as some of the challenges still facing the electronics distribution industry today.
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. The Executive Conference has been a must-attend event for more than 30 years - there is no other event that offers an in-depth look at the electronics components industry and is as geared towards industry-specific education and fostering meaningful relationships across this section of the supply chain network.
"We look forward to hearing Mr. Gallagher's perspective on the state of the electronics industry as well as the latest trends from the ever-changing world of technology distribution -- which many of our members rely on to get their solutions to market," noted Debbie Conyers, ECIA Vice President of Member Engagement and coordinator of the Executive Conference. "Phil is an industry leader who is well regarded for his deep understanding of the industry and his positive outlook -- which usually includes a couple of colorful sports analogies," she added. "Registration is expected to be very robust this year, so we are encouraging attendees to take advantage of theearly bird registration."
It is important for business owners to learn the insights on how market trends are going to turn out to be in the near future. It would require more time for them to come up with new processes without knowing just what to expect from both consumers as well as competitors.
I think that a lot of businesses will be interested to sending representatives to hear this man speak at the exhibition. I am sure that he will be able to provide a lot of insight into what's happening in the industry. Plenty of titbits to bring back to the company to develop the product in storage and the operation procedures in the factory!
