Regional Oregon Manufacturers’ Summits

Although we won’t be holding a large in-person statewide conference this year, OMEP is pleased to present mini regional summit events taking place throughout Oregon in 2020 and 2021. Use the form at the bottom of this page to get notifications about regional events.


Join your region’s leading manufacturing companies in a powerful business strategy game. READY OR NOT is a competitive, event-based simulation that brings real-world challenges and solutions to life. Teams work to understand threats and opportunities, then make strategic decisions to invest limited resources. This powerful experience builds understanding, expands your business toolset, and encourages a new perspective to prepare you for tomorrow’s business challenges.


Hear from the inspiring founder of Schmidt’s Naturals about her journey scaling her business from her kitchen to a highly efficient manufacturing operation. Learn how she quickly expanded production output and successfully grew her company. You will receive a copy of Jaime’s new book, “Supermaker: Crafting Business on Your Own Terms.” Jaime is the founder of Schmidt’s Naturals. Owner of Supermaker & Portland Made. Investor at Color. Author.

We couldn’t do this without the help of our sponsors and partners
