How Manufacturing Day has grown to inspire millions over the years

Posted by IndustryNet on Thursday, September 28, 2017

100000113_Manufacturing_DayManufacturing Day kicks off on Oct. 6, 2017. Since 2012, Manufacturing Day has inspired manufacturers to host thousands of public events. Manufacturing Day is more than a collection of trade shows, however. Today, it's a nationwide platform for job seekers, educators, students, media, and even politicians to celebrate the resurgence of American manufacturing.

Manufacturing Day 2017

Manufacturing Day has grown exponentially over the past several years. From 2012 to 2013 alone, official events held nationwide nearly quadrupled. In total, the number of Manufacturing Day events has risen 1,000 percent since its inauguration. The rise of Manufacturing Day coincides with a manufacturing renaissance in the U.S., which has the potential to create millions of well-paying jobs. Manufacturing Day gives manufacturers, vendors, and suppliers a chance to bring new products to market and showcase their operations to the next generation.

During the entire month of October, sponsors are free to host their own events. Some Manufacturing Day events underscore job opportunities; others highlight new technology. The best part is that any manufacturer can register to participate here.
