MFG Days 2020

Join the Greater Niles Chamber of Commerce, MI Works! Berrien, Cass, Van Buren, Berrien RESA, and other community partners as we work to connect with area businesses and educators to shine a virtual spotlight on local manufacturers and manufacturing career opportunities. The virtual format extends the reach of this annual event beyond one day – and to more students, educators, parents, and community members.

MFG Days 2020 features a wide variety of digital tools and virtual opportunities to help connect students to manufacturing. Resources include an Industry ConnectED Video Library, presentation resources, Career Pathway Pages, a newly featured LIFT video series, live virtual experiences with area manufacturers, and more!

Over the past eight years, more than 4,000 students across Northwestern Indiana and over 5,000 students across Southwestern Michigan have connected with over 175 industry champions throughout the region as part of October’s annual Manufacturing Day. This year, for the first time ever, community partners from across the region are working to bridge two incredible Manufacturing Day programs to offer Manufacturing Days 2020! This united initiative offers a unique opportunity for students, educators, parents, employers, and other leaders to promote career success on a whole new level. Your partnership illuminates a pathway for our future workforce by showing them the education and career opportunities available in our community.

MFG Days is an opportunity to:

  • Learn the truth about manufacturing and manufacturing careers
  • Inspire a new generation of manufacturers
  • Learn what is being made in our communities
  • Encourage entrepreneurship and inspire creativity

Be sure to also check out MFG Days in the South Bend-Elkhart, Indiana region.
