In just five short years MFG DAY has grown from a small celebration with 240 events in 37 states to a North American phenomenon with nearly 3,000 events – live and virtual – serving communities in every state, several Canadian provinces, Mexico and Puerto Rico. We anticipate that by the time the numbers are all in for this year more than half a million people will have participated.
Thank you to the manufacturers, industry suppliers, chambers of commerce, economic development agencies, MEP Centers, community and technical colleges, universities, government agencies, and school districts that have embraced the concept of Manufacturing Day and helped to accelerate its growth at such a rapid pace.
On behalf of the 17 sponsors, the 256 organizations and publications that have endorsed Manufacturing Day, as well as the co-producers and partners, here’s hoping for sunshine, blue skies and perfect temperatures for each and every MFG DAY event taking place across North America in October. Share your experiences on social media and be sure to use #MFGday16 when you do.
