Polaris MEP and the Rhode Island Manufacturers Association presented the first ever Rhode Island Manufacturing B2B (RIMFGB2B) on March 23, 2017 connecting small manufacturers like never before.
In just 3 hours, we saw over 400 attendees from over 250 companies from 15 states – all focused on Rhode Island manufacturers. The event was such a hit that we are considering running it again in the near future.
“As a direct result of your B2B conference, my company is receiving a little a spike in business!” -Dinna Finnegan, President/CEO – PLATINUM RECOGNITION

There are signs of localized manufacturing changing the industry. Partnering with local suppliers can shorten delivery times and be cost competitive to make a manufacturer more agile and responsive to customer demand. The RI Manufacturing B2B event embraces that idea by connecting the state’s multi-disciplined manufacturing community to augment supply chains, foster partnerships and spur growth.
Thanks to all who attended and especially our incredible exhibitors listed below!
