North America is hosting the first Manufacturing EXPO, Putting a Face on Manufacturing. The organisers say they want to change the way manufacturers, design engineers and purchasing agents view production and product selection. On February 14-15, 2012, more than 3,000 industry-related professionals from Canada and the United States are expected to gather at The Galleria in Downtown Cleveland to gain insights and build important relationships the old-fashioned way: through in-person contact.
More than 175 exhibitors will be showing off their know-how at The Manufacturing EXPO, and some of the most established names in manufacturing will be sharing valuable information with attendees. At the same time, this is designed to be an intimate, easily accessible event, one in which manufacturers, design engineers and others experts in the industry can realize first-hand how impressive and vital manufacturing continues to be in North America.
"The Manufacturing EXPO will harken back to the days of the International Expositions," says Mary Kaye Denning, president and founder of The Manufacturing Mart. "Attendees will be able to stroll the aisles and meet with the faces behind some of the world's most impressive products. Likewise, exhibitors will have the opportunity to see up-close what others in the industry are doing. This is a chance for everyone in the manufacturing arena to realize how proud they should be of what they are producing for North America and the world."
