GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. – Mark your calendars to attend the industry’s most inspiring leadership conferences for 2017 – the Executive Briefing Conference. Held in Detroit, Michigan April 23-25, the Executive Briefing Conference is an educational experience arming company leaders with the knowledge, strategies and forward-thinking attitude necessary for succeeding in today's manufacturing world.

Three plant tours are part of the Executive Briefing Conference program




The conference, hosted by Stiles Machinery, Inc., combines inspiring speakers, insightful case-studies of industry innovators, behind-the-curtain tours through advanced manufacturing facilities, networking with industry peers and informational briefings focused on providing best business practices and solutions to common manufacturing challenges that decision-makers are facing in today’s economy.
Hosting this year’s EBC in Detroit was an obvious choice.

“Detroit is the greatest comeback city for manufacturing,” explains Thomas Allott, manager of Stiles University. “The city, which was once the epicenter of manufacturing thanks to Henry Ford, has seen some really tough times in the last few decades but is now on this incredible journey to reinvention.

"You can’t help but get inspired by the collective progress and innovation stemming from this city and from the enthusiastic manufacturers who continue to drive it – this embodies what this conference is all about.”

Peer to peer networking is one of the perks of attending the Executive Briefing Conference

Taking place at the famous Westin Book Cadillac Hotel in Downtown Detroit, the Executive Briefing Conference includes best-selling authors and keynote speakers including Josh Linkner, New York Times best-selling author of “The Road to Reinvention” speaking on inspiring, disruptive innovation.
