The LPA is pleased to welcome back Josh Waldman and Steve Willoughby from the Cleveland Research Company, who will discuss the following:
1. Overview of 2018 performance - An overview of how the markets performed in the prior year (2018) with a focus on major end markets and geographies. They will review the major themes that Cleveland Research believes influenced demand through the year.
2. 2019 Outlook - 2019 outlook by end market and geography highlighting the markets they believe members could expect to accelerate or decelerate vs. the prior year. Josh and Steve will touch on the catalysts that they believe could create upside or downside to growth in the end markets vs. the prior year.
3. Global Macroeconomic Concerns - Cleveland Research will provide the audience with a real-time view of the impact from recent macro shifts including Tariffs, Currency, and other trade related concerns. They will describe to members what to expect to see in 2019 and how these trends may influence the Life Science industry and members’ business through the year.
The breakfast will close with a Q&A session. Don't delay in registering, as this was a sold-out event last year! Not only have we kept the price the same, but we have also enabled multiple registrations for this event so managers can register for and bring their whole team! Registrations are transferable between employees of the same company.
