Subject: Technology for Advancing Manufacturing Operations

An important business development initiative for our Region has been put in place.  On November 9th, the 2012 NW Ohio Manufacturing Forum & EXPO will take place at BGSU.

The event is set up with a Speaker Series (Forum) that will be followed by an industrial trade show (EXPO). 

The Speaker Series Forum program this year is --- Technology for Advancing Manufacturing

Each speaker is not only an expert in their field, but they are also part of an organization that has the resources to work with manufacturers to implement an advanced technology to strengthen a company’s competitive position.

The Supplier EXPO (industrial trade show) portion of the event will assist area manufacturers interested in finding regional Suppliers in closer proximity to their operations.

The co-hosts will again be the Ohio Manufacturers Association (OMA) and the Northwest Ohio Regional Economic Development Association (NORED).
