Exhibit at the Expo

Reserve your Booth Now!

The Made Here! Expo & Job Fair is a local celebration of National Manufacturing Day.

A national annual event, MFG (manufacturing) Day is a celebration of modern manufacturing meant to inspire the next generation of manufacturers. A recent study by the Manufacturing Institute and Deloitte revealed that only one-third of those surveyed would encourage their children to pursue a manufacturing career due to concerns around job security and stability, weak career paths, and poor pay.

  • The average tenure of workers in the manufacturing industry is highest among all private sector industries at 9.1 years.
  • Modern manufacturing also has one of the lowest employee turnover rates among all private-sector jobs at 2.3 percent.
  • The average manufacturing worker in the U.S. earns almost $20,000 more than the average employee working in other industries.
  • Exhibit at SWIMA’s annual MFG Day Made Here Expo!
  • Promote your industry, your company, and your products.
