“The MFG Meeting creates a unique opportunity to connect leaders who build, integrate, sell, service and utilize manufacturing technology to make the products that move our economy,” says Douglas K. Woods, president of AMT. “Certainly we’ve seen our share of volatility in the market over the last few years, and clearly there are some economic uncertainties ahead of us, but the rapid advancements of new digital technologies have afforded us the opportunity to react and leverage these tools to keep pace. Being able to share these tools and techniques with your peers at The MFG Meeting has proven invaluable to the long-term success of our manufacturing community.”

“At NTMA, our members form the heart of manufacturing – small and medium-sized manufacturers who are, oftentimes, family-owned or private,” says Roger Atkins, president of NTMA. “By collaborating with AMT to hold The MFG Meeting this year, we ensure our members’ voices and concerns are front and center. We’vefound the challenges that face large corporations are the same ones that small and medium-sized shops are facing, from supply chain issues to integrating new digital technologies. We’re excited for our members to share what they’ve learned and expand their knowledge base as well.”
