The Corridor Manufacturing Conference invites industry leaders to network, learn about best practices in the region, and build a stronger pipeline to engage the next generation.

Attendees will gather for a morning keynote before dispersing for three rounds of breakouts. Attendees can choose from three breakout tracks: Leadership, Workforce, and Technology & Operations. Everyone will gather again for a luncheon keynote, Manufacturing Leaders panel, and brief cocktail reception.
