You need to know what’s going to happen in the economy to make the best business decisions for your company. Although manufacturing technology orders surpassed $5.9 billion in 2021 – marking the most successful year ever – some businesses have concerns. How much longer will unpredictable supplies and rising prices be around?
Get answers and data from leading national economist and ITR Economics President Alan Beaulieu, who will speak at AMT’s MFG Meeting, April 27-30, in Bonita Springs, Florida. Beaulieu will share his forecast through 2023 and offer insight into how manufacturers can capitalize on opportunity, practical advice to stay ahead of the competition, and data to help you strategically plan.
Beaulieu specializes in forecasting and planning based on business cycle trend analysis. He will drill down into details on key economic indicators and how they’ll influence the supply chain, workforce, inflation and interest rates as they relate specifically to the manufacturing technology industry. You’ll gain valuable information to prepare for what’s ahead to maximize investments, avoid the misallocation of resources, and manage spending.
