The impacts of COVID-19 are being felt across manufacturing operations globally.

Learn how global manufacturers are managing their supply chain disruptions and how these experiences may help your company along with other tips like alternative sourcing strategies, as well as trade restrictions, and local opportunities for manufacturers in our bi-national region.
In addition, CMTC will provide a supply chain consultation at no charge to all manufacturers who attend this event!
