The 2019 Manufacturers Outlook Report:
Opportunities and Challenges

We hate to say it, but there are tough economic times on the horizon, and Canadian manufacturing executives need to get ready for them. 

The good news: If the information in the upcoming 2019 Manufacturers Outlook is anything to go by, they are already preparing for this latest economic battle.

Join Jayson Myers, award winning economist and CEO of Next Generation Manufacturing Canada (NGen), and Dale Kehler, Vice President of SYSPRO Canada’s Product Services, as they dig into the insights of the 2019 Manufacturers Outlook report. Produced annually by PLANT Magazine, this report reveals what Canada’s manufacturing leaders think about our economic opportunities and challenges.

In this webinar, you’ll learn the answers to questions that could be vital for your success in 2019:

  1. What is the cause of these turbulent times?
  2. What growth strategies can you take advantage of to weather the storm?
  3. Should you introduce new products or invest in innovation in 2019?
  4. What are the repercussions of ignoring the opportunities that lie ahead?

See how you compare to other Canadian manufacturers and if your strategy aligns with the economic outlook.
