Bring A Customer To FER’s E&S Forecast July 24

Foodservice Equipment Reports’ 2013 E&S Market Forecast President’s Preview will be held Tuesday, July 24, 2012, at the Westin O’Hare Hotel in Rosemont, Ill. This annual one-day, comprehensive look at data and trends driving the foodservice equipment and supplies market into ’13 and beyond features a new benefit this year: Suppliers paying the full seminar fee can bring a customer for only $100 more.

The President’s Preview offers manufacturers, operators, dealers and others in the industry an in-depth look at the foodservice equipment and supplies industry next year and beyond, in time for planning and budgeting. It includes the industry’s only hard- number forecasts of the E&S market.

The meeting presentations include data and analysis of macro-economic, operator and materials-price trends as they impact the foodservice E&S market, as well as exclusive information on E&S manufacturer list-price trends from AutoQuotes Inc. FER’s annual rankings of the top U.S. E&S manufacturers will be updated. Additional data, buying group analysis and a full-ranking of dealers based on FER’s annual Top Dealers Report is also featured. The merger and acquisition activity in both communities will be detailed.

The meeting will close, as always, with our hard-number forecasts of the E&S market in ’13 and out through ’16. For the first time, we will detail the longer-terms forecasts by product categories as well as overall industry growth.

The Westin O’Hare is just a 10-minute, free hotel-shuttle ride from Chicago’s O’Hare Airport. The early-bird fee, $895, applies until June 29. Registrants after then will pay the full $995 fee. For those who cannot attend the meeting, the forecast materials will be available for $1,295 after the meeting. Suppliers who pay the full fee can bring one or more customers for an additional $100 each.

The meeting is scheduled from 9:45 a.m. to 4 p.m. so most attendees can fly in and fly out on July 24. Rooms are available at the Westin O’Hare for only $139 for those wishing to fly in July 23 or stay July 24.
