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 is Oct 7, 2016—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. Any day of the year can be Manufacturing Day. 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.
Help us put Colorado on the Manufacturing Day map!
Every October since 2013, manufacturers from across North America take time to celebrate MFG Day. After a strong initial showing of 64 events, Colorado has gradually declined every year since and only registered 11 events in 2015. This year¬we can do better! These events are a great way to showcase your company to potential clients and future employees! Every event that we register in this state, is a vote for Colorado and helps us show the world that Colorado is the state to get things MADE!
