CEOs from the region’s leading manufacturers will discuss how they are managing today’s complexities and will share best practices that help their businesses succeed. Manufacturers are faced with tremendous challenges including significantly disrupted supply chains, a major workforce shortage, plus automation and productivity issues.

Next, a CEO panel will address supply chain realities and how local leaders are dealing with product delays, higher prices and managing customer frustrations. Panelists will also focus on strategies for creating a positive company culture and being more productive and doing more with less.
