Event Description

Is your company interested in expanding its business to overseas markets?
You won’t want to miss Automation Alley’s Global Economic Outlook 2013.

Learn how a small business can find big markets globally, listen to trade mission success stories as local companies share their experiences and discover new opportunities for trade in global hot spots, such as the MIST countries (Mexico, Indonesia, South Korea and Turkey) and BRIC countries (Brazil, Russia, India and China). The event will also cover the election outcome, the federal budget and what it means for American businesses.

Featured speakers:
  • William Adams, senior international economist at PNC Bank, will discuss the global economic outlook for 2013, which will include a broad overview of regions and countries where Michigan companies should consider doing business (e.g. BRIC and MIST countries) based on the high demand for Michigan products, services and technologies. Adams will also focus on issues that impact Michigan companies doing business overseas, including the euro crisis, China’s slowing economic growth and the U.S. debt.
  • Robert Ruffini, president of Fluxtrol, Inc., will present a case study on how his company established operations overseas.
  • Kevin McKervey, managing director of Clayton & McKervey, P.C., will present a business industry outlook, educating attendees on the risks and benefits of doing business overseas.
The presentations will be followed by an open discussion and question and answer period.
