Gene Marks to Keynote at IPC Technology Market Research Conference Columnist and Author to Discuss Economic and Political Trends Affecting Business

Jul 03, 2013

Columnist, author and small business owner Gene Marks will present the opening keynote at the IPC Technology Market Research Conference (TMRC), Wednesday, September 25, at the Allerton Hotel in Chicago. The event, themed “The Next Generation: Creating the Electronics Industry of the Future,” will be co-located with the IPC Management Meetings, which will be held on Tuesday, September 24.


In keeping with the forward-looking theme of the conference, Marks’ presentation, “Economic, Political and Other Key Trends: 10 Things Happening Today That Will Affect Your Business Tomorrow,” will take a thought-provoking and entertaining look at how the economy, Washington and technology affect businesses, and what successful companies are doing today to ensure future profitability.
A columnist for The New York Times, Forbes, Inc. Magazine, Fox Business and The Huffington Post, Marks is also the author of several books and often appears on Fox News, Bloomberg and CNBC to discuss business issues. In addition, he owns and operates The Marks Group PC, a 10-person firm that provides customer relationship management technology and consulting services to small- and medium-sized businesses.

Gene Marks’ insightful keynote will be an excellent kick-off to this highly interactive and empowering event,” says Sanjay Huprikar, IPC vice president of member success. “He’s very knowledgeable about business and economic issues, and has an engaging presentation style that will get conference participants excited about our industry’s future — and their role in creating it.”

The focus and topics for the TMRC are determined in collaboration with a steering committee of industry professionals with a vested interest in a thriving electronics industry. Other sessions at the TMRC will address global economics, high-performance computing systems in the military, nanotechnology, graphene, 3-D packaging, new materials and an interactive session about how companies can position themselves for the future. Representatives from all areas of the electronics industry are invited to attend the TMRC.
