Each year, National Manufacturing Day recognizes the impact of manufacturing upon the U.S. economy, highlights manufacturing’s value to communities across the nation and raises awareness of high-paying manufacturing careers. Manufacturing Day efforts provide business leaders, legislators, educators, media and the community at large with timely information about the innovations, technologies, career options and best practices that exist within today’s advanced manufacturers.
To celebrate this national event, the Northeastern Pennsylvania Industrial Resource Center, NEPIRC, is hosting a Regional Manufacturing Showcase and Trade Show on Thursday, October 5th at the Radisson Lackawanna Station Hotel, Scranton. Manufacturers and businesses supporting the manufacturing industry are invited to set up trade show tables and booth displays showcasing their products and services.
This event is a great opportunity to meet manufacturers and business leaders in Northeastern and the Northern Tier of Pennsylvania and learn about their products and services. Time has been incorporated into the agenda for participants to visit manufacturer tables, network, learn about what each other has to offer and help facilitate synergies, purchasing opportunities and collaborations among Pennsylvania manufacturers.
In addition to trade show floor and networking time, NEPIRC’s agenda features author and motivational speaker Alexander (Lex) Sloot as a keynote speaker. Mr. Sloot is a successful manufacturing, marketing and publishing entrepreneur as well as a commercial real estate developer. He appeals to a wide range of audiences with his unique approach to a successful career and personal life, providing ground-breaking guidance, principles and a creative winning formula for operating more productively and effectively.
A special Manufacturing Day Luncheon will be held on Thursday, October 3rd at Timeless Destination in Wellsboro.
Major sponsors for NEPIRC’s Manufacturing Day events include Bank of America Merrill Lynch, Cabot Oil & Gas Corp., Cheetah Chassis, Elecast, Equipment Technology Inc. (ETI), Medico Industries and Tooling U/SME.
