FABTECH, the largest metal forming, fabricating, welding and finishing show in North America, opens its doors at the Las Vegas Convention Center next week, Nov. 12-14. Machining Journal will be there, talking with manufacturers about the latest technology and trends affecting their business. Attendees will not only be able to network but also attend educational sessions.
On Tuesday, Nov. 13 at 12:30 p.m., a panel will convene to discuss last night’s election results. “Post-Election Analysis: How the Results Impact U.S. Manufacturing” will feature Omar Nashashibi of the Franklin Partnership and David Goch of Webster, Chamberlain and Bean. Paul Nathanson, a founding partner at the Policy Resolution Group at Bracewell & Giuliani, will moderate the free session open to all attendees.
The session will cover the impending fiscal cliff and its effects, already being felt in businesses across the country, as well as other issues important to U.S. industry. For a sneak peek on what will be discussed, check out Machining Journal sister publication Industry Market Trends’ coverage of the differences between the Romney and Obama platforms from mid-October. Obama had announced he would eliminate incentives for outsourcing — will he stay true to that promise?
Following the talk, Steve Nowlan, president of the Center for America (CFA) will talk to attendees about opportunities for manufacturers to hire military veterans in a talk called “American Jobs for American Heroes.”
