Manufacturing Day/Week

What is Manufacturing Day/Week?

Manufacturing Day is a national event meant to address common misperceptions about manufacturing. Through tours, open houses, and other events we will help educate, encourage and inspire the next generation of manufacturers. The official date for Manufacturing Day is always the first Friday of October. In West Michigan we celebrate Manufacturing Day as a week long effort from October 3 - 7, 2016.

Step 1: Decide

Step 2: Commit

Go to www.discover-manufacturing.com and click on the Manufacturing Day logo at the bottom of the page.

Decide on your level of participation. Choose one...or all three options!

  1. Host an open house for MFG Day. Show the community what today’s manufacturing really looks like. You can find a host kit at www.mfgday.com/resources/host-toolkit.
  2. Visit a local school. Plan an activity day with students to explain manufacturing in a fun and creative way.
  3. Promote Manufacturing Day to your network and employees through social media, flyers and email marketing.

Step 3: Follow up

Complete a survey at the end of the week giving feedback, analytics and ideas for next year.
