Strategic Forums

Manufacturers at the dawn of a new industrial era

Friday, February 21, 2014 from 7 A.M. to 2 P.M.

Speaker’s presentations



The manufacturing sector is vital to Quebec and its metropolis. In 2010, 16.3% of the province’s GDP was dependent on this sector, which, by itself, generated $41 billion in direct economic benefits and $26 billion in indirect benefits. This sector is undergoing a tremendous transformation; some are even calling it the start of a new industrial era. In this climate of change, in which the challenges are significant, what strategies must manufacturing businesses use in order to ensure their longevity?

Attend this event to:

  • Understand the major issues of manufacturing in Quebec, and explore solutions that will enable us to rely on a strong manufacturing sector
  • Make the leap into the digital age, and thereby optimize your production and management processes, improve your services, and increase your sales
  • Learn about the best business practices in automation, which will allow you to increase your productivity
  • Network with contractors and key players in the city’s business community

Don’t miss this event, which will be attended by:

ÉLAINE ZAKAÏB ÉLAINE ZAKAÏB
Minister for Industrial Policy
and the Banque de développement économique du Québec
