Key decision makers are invited to join the creative energy and refreshing industry outlook April 14-16 outside Chicago at the Q Center in St. Charles, Illinois. “Plan to attend now so you can participate in an event that advances ideas,” urges Duane Griffiths, Manager of Stiles Education and Conference Director. “You truly cannot miss this opportunity to share your vision, find answers through networking with your peers and learn to understand the changing dynamics in our industry.”

About the Executive Briefing Conference

For ten years the EBC has been asking the questions, “What’s now? What’s new? And what’s next?" The EBC has become the premier venue for manufacturers to network and explore new ways to succeed. By providing strategic and practical information that addresses manufacturing challenges, the EBC provides a forum to find out about new technologies and discover opportunities in a non-commercial environment.

To start a new decade of learning, the 2013 EBC is challenging attendees to be part of creating what’s next. This event promises to have more people discussing solutions rather than asking questions.
