Well that was pretty incredible… We’ve had some busy months since I started at Polaris MEP nearly 3 years ago, but nothing like March 2017!
Sure, September of 2015 was packed with the launch of the Rocket Program, our first All Access Bus Tour of Westrock and Spectrum Thermal, and one or two workshops, but March 2017 takes the cake!
Along with RIMA and Buy Local RI , and made possible by Commerce RI, we were able to pull off one of the largest (yet) RI Manufacturing focused trade shows. Thanks in part to a connection with RIPTAC’s DOD Matchmaker event, we hadover 400 attendees from over 250 companies from 15 states.
We are excited to publish the information that we collected from the data request board so keep an eye out for that soon.
Feedback has been great so we’re already thinking about next time. Sign up to the exhibitor waiting list to let us know if you are interested.
While the RIMFGB2B was taking up much of our attention, we also participated in the first Rhode Island Manufacturing + Maker Tech, powered by IYRS, Commerce RI, Rhode Island College and Rhode Island College. The month finished off with the annual PBN Manufacturing Awards. A nice event to recognize excellence in our industry.
Now onto April and beyond when we’ll continue to bring our popular workshops such as the Marketing Smarter Series with Tribal Vision. That’s followed in May by a new event called “Critical Cybersecurity Issues Facing Manufacturers” with Blum Shapiro. I hope you will check these out and let me know if there is anything else you need.
