2015 South Conference

Welcome to Home Cooking: Designing, Manufacturing and Sourcing in the USA,

The South has always been known as the place to get some great home cooked comfort food.  This year, the Southern District wants to take that idea of home cooking and deep-dive into how corporations and entrepreneurs are designing, manufacturing and sourcing their products right here in the good old USA. 

Hear from some of the top industry professionals from both large and small companies talk about how, and why, they brought their manufacturing back to the US, or the process they go through to figure out their manufacturing footprint when they are developing a product.

Your Southern District planning committee is securing speakers, working on organizing workshops and creating exciting evening activities to make this the best conference experience yet. This year’s conference will be co-located with SPI’s NPE conference, so make sure you get there early to check out the great show floor! Plus, enjoy two free panel discussions organized by Bob Grace, on Thursday afternoon to kick off the South District Conference. 

Join us in Mickey Mouse’s home town for two days of great speakers, great discussions and catch up with old friends and colleagues. I look forward to seeing you on March 26 – 27 in Orlando.
