“I am a firm believer that for manufacturers to compete on a global scale, strong sustainable practices will be essential ingredients within their strategies for success”, said Pasquale Bova, Trade Commissioner for the Chicago and Toronto Offices of the Italian Trade Commission.

The select group of manufacturing leaders in attendance will discuss strategies to capitalize on global economic developments, achieve manufacturing excellence across the globe while building an eco-sustainable business platform.

The conference is ideal for manufacturing executives faced with making operational decisions affecting their organization and is complimentary for qualified attendees.

The conference will present several prominent manufacturing experts including:

  • Alan Beaulieu, President, ITR Economics

Mr. Beaulieu will present his forecast for the global economy, along with the strategies and tactics that should be undertaken now if businesses are to maximize their profit potential in the years to come.

  • Giancarlo Losma, President, Federmacchine


Mr. Losma will address the business imperative of transitioning your business to become more environmentally sustainable. He’ll discuss new technologies and new approaches to developing sustainable products, from the initial stage of design, choice of raw materials and appropriate production systems to product development, its disposal at the end of its life span and the recycling

and re-use of the materials used.

· Patricia Panchak, U.S. Editor IndustryWeek Magazine
