Sponsor/Exhibit at MFGDay22

Invest in a Unique Event Designed to Champion RI Manufacturing

Polaris MEP and the Rhode Island Manufacturers Association (RIMA) will host a two-part MFGDay22 event on October 4th.

In the first part of the program, manufacturing industry leaders, partners, government representatives and media will hear the findings of Polaris MEP’s first-ever “State of RI Manufacturing Study.”

Elected officials also are expected to kick off Manufacturing Month in the Ocean State with a proclamation.

After this forum, business leaders will leave and school buses will arrive, bringing more than 500 8th, 9th and 12th grade students  for a “taste test” of manufacturing careers.

This unique manufacturing community event offers two ways for your organization to invest in “RI’s Future In The Making.”

INDUSTRY PARTNERS:

The career event session is going to be a highly interactive opportunity to directly engage with students!

A select number of companies have been invited to reserve a table that would feature a hands-on demonstration or task. (We’ll work with you to develop the activity.)

You’ll be helping students learm about the highly-skilled processes and high-tech equipment used in modern manufacturing. They’ll get excited about joining the field … and, potentially, joining your company in the future.

Pricing is based on company size. Each exhibitor station includes

  • 2 free registrations for early morning industry session with complimentary continental breakfast
  • Electricity and wifi
  • Company name with link to your website on event website
