“Make it Happen!” is our 2019 Manufacturing Matters! conference theme.

Manufacturer’s confidence hasn’t been this high in years. The economy is strong, and more things become possible each day.

There are of course challenges in this dynamic business environment. Labor is tightening. Technologies are changing the way work is done. Tariffs are creating a level of uncertainty. Better, faster, cheaper, cleaner, and “right now” are the mantras of key customers.

But the pros outweigh the cons and this environment favors the bold, those who “Make it Happen” now rather than sitting on the sidelines to see who will pass them by.

We look forward to exploring ideas and best practices to help companies “Make it Happen” now whether that is getting more out of your existing resources, automating processes, diversifying your customer base, making your company the employer of choice, or securing needed certifications and credentials.


We are excited about this year’s keynote speaker, Dr. Bill Mitchell, President & CEO of Aguila, a Foxconn® company.

There will be 18 total breakout sessions to choose from with three sessions in each of the following six conference tracks:

• Workforce Excellence
• Improving Productivity
• Leading for Success
• Strategic Growth
• Leveraging Sustainability
• Industry 4.0/Technology
