State of Manufacturing® 2022

Join us November 15th at the Minneapolis Marriott Northwest.

State of Manufacturing 2020

The State of Manufacturing® is the annual survey of Minnesota manufacturing executives that reveals the latest trends in key business areas including growth, workforce, supply chain, economic confidence, and more. Each year, over 535 manufacturing executives are surveyed, representing a broad mix of manufacturers by region, employee count and annual revenue.

The State of Manufacturing survey release event on November 15 is open to all manufacturers and supporters of manufacturing. Join us for outstanding networking and data insights to see where the industry is headed next.
