The partners responsible for producing Manufacturing Day at the national level have refreshed its website, MFGDAY.com. The upgraded site offers more resources for sponsors, companies, supporters and volunteers which, according to the group, make it easier to participate in this year's annual celebration of manufacturing, scheduled for Friday, Oct. 2.
Users can now sign up to host events, find MFG DAY events in their areas and learn more about sponsorship opportunities through the newly updated site. With links to social media channels, scholarships and success stories, the site allows potential participants, manufacturers, educators and students to better collaborate and access industry resources.
For 3 years, Manufacturing Day has celebrated the world of modern manufacturing. The annual event is meant to inspire the next generation of manufacturers across North America. In 2014, more than 1,650 companies, educational institutions and associations in all 50 states, Canada and Puerto Rico participated by holding Manufacturing Day events attended by 360,000 people. With the launch of the new site, MFG DAY is hoping to increase participation and further educate the public about the benefits of manufacturing.
