                                   Manufacturing Day has been designed to expand knowledge about and improve general
public perception of manufacturing careers and manufacturing’s value to the North American economy. The official date for this 5th annual celebration of manufacturing is Oct. 7, 2016. However, any day can be Manufacturing Day, so
select a date that works best for your company and your community.
Host An Open House
As a manufacturer it’s your opportunity to:
• Tell your company’s story • Dispel outdated myths about manufacturing
• Inspire a new generation of manufacturers • Connect with potential customers in your community
• Visit other manufacturers to initiate business relationships and learn what is being made in your community
The core element to Manufacturing Day is the schedule of manufacturer’s open houses. Manufacturing Day producers will promote the open house schedule through general and trade media campaigns which will alert thousands of people to visit manufacturers and see that North American manufacturing is a vibrant career path and employers need skilled workers. The event also makes it possible for manufacturers to visit other participating companies in their region that may be potential business partners – either as customers or suppliers.
