WMEP is a proud sponsor of the 2018 Manufacturing First Conference

WMEP will be presenting a breakout session entitled “Transformational Productivity; Can Productivity Save the Day?” on October 24th from 1:00 – 2:00pm.  

American business and industry is faced with a difficult challenge; a rapidly decreasing workforce. Can innovation and technology offset the decline in workforce and subsequent loss of GDP?

This session will explain the challenge, identify what is driving it and how manufacturers are addressing it and will be presented by Randy Bertram, Director of Sustainability Services; and Enno Siemsen, UW-Madison – Procter & Gamble Bascom Professor.  We hope you will join us!


The 8th annual Manufacturing First Expo and Conference is designed for Wisconsin manufacturers to showcase industry advances, highlight successes, announce the latest developments and provide premier networking opportunities.

One BIG day ~ Oct 24, 2018. This year’s keynote speaker, Bob Chapman, “Truly Human Leadership”, will kick off the event at 8am. More than 180 exhibitors, 12 breakout sessions, 2 special presentations, 1,000+ attendees, networking and more!
