Come for the Conference, Stay for the Tech Showcase!

The UW-Stout Manufacturing Outreach Center (MOC) in collaboration with WMEP has worked to infuse a tech showcase into the annual Manufacturing Advantage Conference. The centers, both affiliated with the national NIST / MEP system, are committed to uncovering pathways to greater profitability and growth for small to mid-sized manufacturers in Wisconsin. 

In an effort to support the proactive initiatives of our manufacturers, the 2017 Manufacturing Advantage Conference & Tech Showcase is being designed to showcase even more emerging technologies from a variety of companies and agencies. We are seeking the input of manufacturers across the state to determine their needs as relative to technology and the greatest areas of interest for innovation and research. It is our goal that these efforts can provide exposure and interaction with these leading technology solutions in the most meaningful way. 

Hosted by the UW-Stout MOC
