To Offshore or Reshore? How to Objectively Decide
Recorded on Thursday, April 24, 2014:
1:00 - 2:30 pm Eastern US Time
Reshoring is a hot topic in supply chain and manufacturing circles. The forces driving reshoring include: rising Chinese wage rates, high oil prices, low U.S. natural gas prices, and increasing recognition of the many advantages of producing near the customer. The most visible recent examples have been: Motorola, Apple, Flextronics, Lenovo and GE. We will document the reshoring trend (what, where, why, how much, etc.) and provide tools for comparing the economics of offshoring to reshoring to help companies make better decisions. The rate of new reshoring and new offshoring are now approximately in balance. This webinar will help companies decide which trend is best for them.
This webinar is most relevant to companies (generally OEMs) that do or are considering offshoring, either in their own factories or outsourced to contract manufacturers. It is also relevant as a sales tool for companies that supply capital equipment or components to the OEMs.

How It Works
Single Connection: $99.00
Additional Connection at the same Organization: $50.00
A site connection allows a single connection to the web conference. That connection is open to any number of users in a collaborative setting. Because there are no travel expenses and only a single registration fee is required, each additional participant lowers the cost per participant significantly.
By purchasing a site connection, you can invite as many people as you would like to view and participate in the session from a single location. Set up the session in a conference room and project the presentation and chat on a large screen. You also have rights to distribute copies of the presentation materials to everyone involved. Please note that audio is received via the phone line and must be broadcast to your group.
If for any reason a relevant stakeholder cannot co-locate for the session, we encourage you to include that person by purchasing an additional connection at the reduced fee of $50 per session. This will ensure that every member of a team receives the same relevant, timely information in the most efficient way. If you have any technical or purchasing questions, please contact us at (818) 888-4444.
CANCELLATION, REFUNDS & CREDITS
Should you be unable to attend, a refund, less a $50 administrative charge, will be made for cancellations received via letter or fax at least 3 working days before the event. We regret cancellations will not be accepted after that date. However, we will be pleased to transfer your registration to another member of your company or credit the registration fee to another Infocast conference if you register within 6 months from the date of this conference. In the event the conference is canceled, Infocast’s liability is limited to the refund of the conference registration fee only.
