Creating Value in U.S. Manufacturing

DATE: Wednesday, June 11, 2013
LOCATION:Time/Life Building, 1271 Avenue of The Americas
TIME: 12:00pm - 6:00pm

U.S. Manufacturing companies today have unique opportunities and challenges. Companies are innovative, efficient and customer focused. Debt and equity capital is abundant and inexpensive. But values are high, the markets are very competitive and deal makers are working overtime to put together winning transactions.

We are assembling again a distinguished group of thought leaders to stimulate a lively discussion about creating value in manufacturing.Our Keynote Speaker is Seth Meisel, who is a Managing Director at Bain Capital, a leading private investment firm with approximately 65 billion in assets. Seth has led several significant industrial investments including Apex Tools, Styron, Sensata Technologies and Innophos. He will have plenty to about the state of the manufacturing sector and smart strategies for creating shareholder value. Panelists will include other leading investors, executives and financiers in U.S. Manufacturing. A Capital Connection and Networking Lunch will precede the Keynote and Panels. We will end the afternoon with a Networking Reception.

We expect this to be bigger and better than last year's Manufacturing Conference, which was Sold Out. So let us know soon that you will be joining us for this popular event.
