BRISTOL, England, November 17, 2011 /PRNewswire/ --
Next Generation Manufacturing US will take place today at Barton Creek Resort & Spa in Austin, Texas. The two day event will gather together leading executives from the manufacturing industry across North America in a relaxed, intimate, and vibrant environment to discuss pressing issues for the industry.
"With President Obama detailing at his State of the Union policy last year that the US 'can't just stand still' for a better future - and with the services industry unable to take sole charge and push things forward - it's clear that the revival of North America's economy will lie in its capacity to manufacture." Said GDS International, the global business event company behind NG Manufacturing US. "It is vital that today's C-level manufacturing executives not only know how to adapt and innovate within an evolving market, but can take charge of their processes and lead an entire workforce towards a more secure future."
As well as comprehensive workshops, the summit involves panel discussions offering executives moderated, peer-led discussions on major industry issues. One-to-one meetings gives delegates the chance to meet with business analysts and analyst partners to discuss strategy and demands for a rapidly evolving industry.
A total of 16 workshops cover a range of exciting and pressing topics for the manufacturing industry. Topics include management techniques, lean manufacturing, disaster recovery, productivity, disruptive technology, sustainability, security, supply chain, mobility, and more.
Speakers include leading industry professionals such as Drew Greenblatt, President, Marlin Steel Wire Products; George Nickel, Director, Global Process Architecture, Johnson & Johnson; and Patrick McGivern, SVP Global Supply Chain Operations, Verifone.
Joe Aglio, Summit Director at GDS International, says, "We have always been proud of the quality of our summits, and we are very much looking forward to this years' Next Generation Manufacturing US summit. With such a great speaker lineup it will be one of our best events yet. Our events provide the environment for executives to meet and build valuable relationships that will lead to many exciting new ventures and innovations."
