WHAT IS MANUFACTURING DAY?
Manufacturing Day® is a celebration of modern manufacturing meant to inspire the next generation of manufacturers. Although Manufacturing Day® officially occurs on the first Friday in October—this year being Oct 5, 2018—any day can be a Manufacturing Day®.
Companies and community organizations should plan their events on the date that works best for them and their community. All events should be registered on This Site no matter what date they are scheduled. Only registered event hosts have access to all of the free event planning and execution resources created by the national co-producers.
Oregon Already has 70 Events planned throughout the State!
Local manufacturers who are concerned about the growing skills gap and the increasing need for skilled workers are opening up their doors to educate and excite the next generation about the manufacturing industry. Past Manufacturing Day® facility tours, workshops, and educational webinars have helped to improve the public perception of manufacturing
