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.
