Who’s it for

Mike Klasco, CEO, Menlo Scientific and APEI’s chair of the Supply Chain and Sourcing education pillar will address the methods, practices, economics and politics of the hardware, software and development services that go into every audio product produced. “Long established relationships, trustworthy suppliers that know what we want and need, are losing their position as viable vendors,” explains Klasco. “Where do we go from here?”


In this webinar, Mike Klasco and other highly experienced guests will address the challenges in the supply chain caused by the rising cost of goods from China, the tariff wars, the Hong Kong struggles, and the dynamics of the global pandemic. The emergence of new suppliers in Asia and what part of the audio business can brought back home will also be explored in detail.
