The MEP National NetworkTM Summit will bring together more than 500 representatives of the MEP National Network to share knowledge while advancing and integrating Network capabilities. Together, attendees will lay the foundation for services and solutions that will grow the Network, improve the ways we serve small and medium-sized manufacturers, and strengthen and empower U.S. manufacturers as we advance U.S. manufacturing.
Attending MEP Center staff and partners will:
- Connect with experts who can help them deliver on in-state and multi-state projects
- Join together to solve business issues and create effective business models
- Develop shared approaches that can influence a wider manufacturing ecosystem
Programming will feature over fifty sessions centering on three tracks derived from the overarching summit theme, The “United State of Manufacturing.”
- UNITED – Uniting with our partners and ecosystems
This track will highlight the MEP National Network’s unique ways of leveraging partnerships and relationships to connect manufacturers to what they need.
- STATE – The current state of services and knowledge sharing
This track will encompass the distinctive and replicable practices Centers employ to serve manufacturers and increase operational excellence across the Network.
- MANUFACTURING – Manufacturing technology and trends
This track will offer insight into the technologies currently impacting today’s manufacturing operations, as well as the cutting-edge technologies of tomorrow.
