Manufacturing businesses and employers are the backbone of a successful Manufacturing (MFG) Day event. Each year, thousands of manufacturers host in-person or virtual events in an effort to highlight manufacturing jobs and the benefits that manufacturing provides to a community.
MFG Day Events are typically in-person tours that feature hands-on experiences, presentations, discussions, demonstration, Q & A, and more. The goal of these events is to feature all aspects of the industry: accounting, administration, customer service, engineering, estimating, IT, purchasing, marketing, design, sales, etc. Virtual events with digital activities are also an option to showcase your business and future career opportunities.
The most important step in participating in MFG Days is to register your event on the Manufacturing Institute’s website here. If registered, educators can search and find MFG events in their region.
For more detailed information on hosting in-person and virtual events, see the Manufacturing Institute’s Host Toolkit.
