Manufacturing Day, set for Oct. 7, is a nationwide celebration that sees businesses host events around the country to highlight the economic significance of modern manufacturing in the United States.
The events seek to promote individual manufacturers and the manufacturing industry as a whole on the local and national levels.
The National Marine Manufacturers Association is helping marine manufacturers plan events.
Although Manufacturing Day officially occurs on the first Friday in October, the NMMA said any day can be a Manufacturing Day. U.S. marine manufacturers are encouraged to plan events on the date that works best.
The NMMA said all events should be registered on www.mfgday.com, regardless of the day they are scheduled, to take advantage of a variety of free event planning and execution resources.
The NMMA said Manufacturing Day is a tool for recruitment and for educating the public about manufacturing’s economic importance in the United States, highlighting the jobs it creates.
