Continued from page 20 whose manufacturing operation is electronically linked from order entry through production and fulfillment – is especially prevalent among global manufacturers. Shilly will provide insights on how suppliers of fasteners, fixer a nd related components can respond to this change. Free Tech Talks Theater Conference Content Two days of free, half-hour briefings on the show floor will be held, covering technology, design, business trends and purchasing practices for OEMs and fastener manufacturers and distributors. More than a dozen presenters will examine topics such as Blind Rivet Bolts, Import & Export Strategies, Advanced Coating Methods, and 3D Metal Printing. This begins July 14 at 10:30 a.m., with “Import and Export Review,” presented by Danielle Riggs, Director of International Trade Compliance at Wurth Industry North America. Following that Industrial Fasteners Institute and the Fastener Training Institute will present ASK THE EXPERTS. Specialists in a variety of aspects of the fastener and fixing business will field questions from the audience, beginning at the stage, then continuing from an adjacent ASK THE EXPERTS Booth #935 and #1034 for the duration of the show. Other presentations include “How to Move Fasteners to the Front o the Design Cycle” and “Integration of Packaging in the production Line.” Wortman manages the Los Angeles office of Grunfeld, Desiderio, Lebowitz, Silverman & Klestadt LLP, one of the nation’s largest law firms devoted exclusively to international trade and customs matters. Wortman’s presentation will focus on the massive impact of tariffs on the global fastener industry, affecting everything from the supply of raw materials, to the import of fasteners themselves into the domestic market. Since January 1, two major developments have taken place affecting tariffs – the adoption of the USMCA by Mexico, Canada and the U.S., and the signing of Phase 1 of a trade agreement with China. Both will have profound impacts on business and trade. The China agreement has many details yet to be resolved.
