Webinar: Macroeconomics II – Commodity and Input Prices

Wednesday | May 10 | 2:00 PM Eastern | Register Today

In a partnership with the Association Education Alliance (AEA), ECIA is happy to invite you to part II of this webinar. 

Volatile commodity prices made it difficult for the distribution community to predict input costs and manage budgets since the start of the pandemic. The fallout of this volatility included squeezed margins and pressured profitability for distributors across a spectrum of industries. The slowing macro economy reflects a pivotal change from the aggressive pace of business in 2021 and early 2022, with many commodities declining in price. In this episode, Alex Chausovsky will explore the factors that drive commodity and input prices. He will also discuss the current and likely future trajectory of commodities and other input costs and provide guidance on what distribution leaders need to do now to prepare their business for what’s to come.
