Tucson, AZ, July 28, 2011 --(PR.com
)-- Nearshore manufacturing cost savings will be the main topic of discussion at The Offshore Group's 17th Annual Manufacturing in Mexico Summit. This long running and prestigious Maquiladora Industry conference will be held from October 20 - 22, 2011 at the San Carlos Plaza Hotel in San Carlos, Sonora, Mexico.
The principal speaker at the nearshore manufacturing event will be Chas Spence. Mr. Spence is a director in the Latin American Practice at AlixPartners, the global consulting firm. AlixPartners recently conducted a survey of C-Level manufacturing executives across 15 industries that concluded that, due to shifts in global manufacturing and transportation costs that have impacted companies over the last several years, Mexico has reasserted itself as the nearshore top choice for manufacturers seeking to supply the North American market, while reducing their "all-in" costs.
In addition to an informative speaking program, attendees at The Offshore Group's 17th annual Manufacturing in Mexico Summit will have the opportunity to:
- Tour operational nearshore maquiladora facilities in a number of industries
- Interact with staff of Mexico manufacturing firms that occupy executive and plant level, operations positions
- Conduct an exhaustive cost model analysis for the purpose of projecting any manufacturing in Mexico projects that may be under consideration.
The Offshore Group's annual Manufacturing in Mexico Summit has enjoyed unparalleled success over the course of its almost two decades of existence due to the program's utilitarian design. It has been specifically configured so as to enable busy manufacturing executives to collect data, feedback and information that, under normal circumstances, may take six months or more to gather.
