The Big M Manufacturing Convergence

6,500 0

Overview

Event Overview:

In June 2014, the manufacturing industry united in Detroit at THE BIG M. This group of business owners, executives, engineers, professionals, educators, students, and policymakers gathered to share best practices, develop new collaborations, and further manufacturing’s renaissance in the Great Lakes.

We will meet again in June 2015 to continue the conversation, check the pulse of the endeavors launched at the event, and course correct as needed. We will tackle new challenges and find innovative ways to overcome the old ones – real-world solutions that can only be defined by harnessing the collective knowledge of manufacturers across industries.
