There’s a new excitement in manufacturing across the Commonwealth! Innovative technology and fresh ideas are pushing Kentucky’s number one economic driver to new levels of production and community engagement.
You may be familiar with KAM’s Energy Conferences, which expanded in 2017 to a Manufacturing Conference. This year, we have updated our conference with a new name and an expanded charter! The “State of Manufacturing Conference” builds on previous events, featuring in-depth looks at trends, strategies and best practices to help Kentucky manufacturers become more competitive and more profitable. Also for the first time, we’ll be offering certifications in two areas, Lean 101 and GMS 201 (Growth Management System).
WHAT IS THE THEME FOR 2018?
Make It Here is the theme of this year’s conference. One of KAM’s goals is to show students they can make it here, in Kentucky and in manufacturing. Another goal is to let manufacturers all over the world know they can make their products here and their company will thrive in the Commonwealth.
Manufacturing is the #1 contributor to Kentucky’s GDP, driving Kentucky’s economy. Our members represent some of the state’s most important and influential manufacturers, business leaders, young professionals and more! Sponsor the Conference now to show your support of KAM and manufacturers across the state!
WHO IS THE TARGET AUDIENCE?
Manufacturers, suppliers, legislators, educators, and policymakers. Manufacturers from across the Commonwealth have requested KAM take the lead in facilitating robust and focused discussion with key decision makers on ensuring Kentucky maintains its strong manufacturing position. KAM is committed to providing information manufacturers need from subject matter experts on topics they say keep them up at night.
