Foodservice Equipment Reports

Early-Bird Discount For FER’s E&S Market Forecast Meeting Flies Away July 10

The early-bird discounted fee for Foodservice Equipment Reports’ annual President’s Preview E&S Market Forecast ends this Friday, July 10. After Friday, the $995 fee increases to $1,095. This year’s meeting is scheduled for Tuesday, July 28, at The Westin O’Hare in Rosemont, Ill.

The annual one-day President’s Preview forecast event has been presented annually since 2006. It offers manufacturers, operators, dealers, reps and others interested in the industry an in-depth look at the foodservice equipment and supplies market next year and beyond, in time for planning and budgeting.

The meeting begins by providing data and analysis of macro-economic, operator and international economic and operator trends as they impact the foodservice E&S market. Materials and E&S pricing trends then are detailed and analyzed. This year, Lisa Reisman, Managing Director and CEO of Azul Partners as well as Executive Editor of MetalMiner, the monthly MMI Report and the MMI Monthly Metal Buying Outlook, will provide attendees with in-depth price-trends data and forecasts on materials including stainless and carbon steels, aluminum, copper and other key materials used widely in E&S products. Her presentation, teamed with exclusive historical data on E&S list pricing from AutoQuotes Inc., will give manufacturers and buyers a unique quantitative perspective for pricing and cost planning. 

FER’s annual rankings of the top U.S. E&S manufacturers will be updated. Additional data; a new, more-inclusive buying-group analysis; and a full dealers ranking based on FER’s annual Top Dealers Report also will be featured. The merger and acquisition activity in both communities will be detailed.

The meeting will close, as always, with hard-number forecasts of the E&S market from 2016 through 2019. The longer-terms forecasts are detailed by product categories as well as overall industry growth.

The Westin O’Hare is just a 10-minute hotel-shuttle ride from Chicago’s O’Hare Int’l. Airport. For those who cannot attend, the forecast materials will be available after the meeting for $1,595.

The meeting is scheduled from 9:45 a.m.-4 p.m. so many attendees can fly in and out on July 28. A limited number of rooms are available at The Westin O’Hare for only $169 for those wishing to fly in July 27 or stay over July 28.
