Manufacturing Innovations 2011: Seizing Tomorrow's Opportunities Today

The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) Hollings Manufacturing Extension Partnership (MEP) will host Manufacturing Innovations 2011 from May 14—18, 2011, at the World Center Marriott in Orlando, Fla. This annual national event helps U.S. manufacturers to profit, grow and position themselves for the future by providing access to emerging technologies, partnerships, methodologies and ultimately new business opportunities.

Year after year, more than 700 manufacturers, industry experts and MEP field staff use the experience and knowledge they have gained to strengthen and improve their organizations, making the U.S. manufacturing base more competitive.

In addition to over 100 technical sessions, there will be multiple networking opportunities for all participants, including a chance for one-on-one matchmaking sessions. These individual meetings are available for small- to medium-sized manufacturers to connect with larger manufacturers and federal agency procurement officials to find new markets and sales opportunities.
