ST PETERSBURG, FL

"RESHORING"
For 2015 we delve into reshoring. The goal of reshoring is to bring good, well paying manufacturing jobs back to North America by assisting member companies and their customers to more accurately assess their total cost of offshoring, and to shift collective thinking from "offshoring is cheaper" to "local reduces the total cost of ownership". Please join us for four days of networking, fellowship and important information sharing.
