AMT Conference Gives Manufacturers Insight into Future Market Conditions


McLEAN, Va., June 14, 2016 – Manufacturers looking to stay abreast of market conditions, trends and forecasts, and wanting to improve their overall business position, will benefit from the upcoming Global Forecasting & Marketing Conference (GFMC) taking place October 19 – October 21 in Miami, Florida.
Hosted annually for over 40 years by AMT – The Association For Manufacturing Technology, GFMC brings together economic forecasters, sales and marketing specialists, and industry leaders. These experts share their insight into the market factors driving manufacturing and how companies can outpace the competition in this business environment.
“If you want to learn what’s impacting manufacturing today and what to expect for the future, GFMC is a must-attend event,” said Douglas Woods, President of AMT. “You’ll hear how the domestic and global economies are faring, which industry segments are doing better than others and why the outcome of the 2016 elections matter. Attendees will also learn how to use this information to their best advantage to distinguish themselves from their competitors.”
GFMC also provides networking opportunities for executives and industry professionals to discuss current issues impacting their industry’s market conditions, production processes or technology trends. The event draws attendees from a diverse array of production machinery, contract machining, assembly, finance, capital equipment distribution and brokerage type companies.
Attendees will leave the conference equipped with the knowledge and tools they need to “turn insight into action” – this year’s conference theme – and develop strategic plans to thrive in a dynamic, competitive marketplace. 
Registration for GFMC 2016 is now open at
