The next several months will be among the most challenging the supplier industry has ever faced. As automotive OEMs work to cut costs and right-size their businesses, suppliers will be asked to agree to some of the biggest discounts and cost downs in history.
However, in spite of the difficult environment, there are steps that suppliers can take to hold the line on pricing and defend their positions.
Please join us for a unique sales workshop, designed specifically for automotive and heavy duty parts suppliers.

Chinese and Indian suppliers can't match your quality so you shouldn't have to match their price. In the workshop, we take you through a step-by-step process that will enable you to document and present the value of your part or service compared to the hidden costs of sourcing from low -cost, low quality countries. 86 of the Top 100 suppliers in North America and 77 of the Top 100 European suppliers have attended in the past 24 months.
Learn best practice techniques that have allowed suppliers to negotiate more effectively and defend the value of their products. Suppliers that have invested in the Defending Price training:
Get price premiums 50% more often than others
60% report a decline in discounting
Are able to pass 75-99% of their raw material price increases on to their customers
