Mixed signals for 2020: What you should plan for
While “It’s not as hot as it was” may be the sound bite for 2019, the U.S. economy is experiencing the longest economic expansion and bull market in history. And many distributors are ending the year with solid – if not record – results. Can it continue? Where are your best growth opportunities?
Join Baird Senior Research Analyst David Manthey, NetSuite VP Ranga Bodla and MDM CEO Tom Gale for this annual breakdown of macroeconomic and distribution-specific trends, competitive moves and 2020 outlook.
This 60-minute webcast, sponsored by Oracle NetSuite, analyzes the latest economic trends, emerging growth opportunities and how the competitive landscape is shifting – and how distributors and manufacturers can capitalize on all of these trends.
