Manufacturing Matters! 2021 Virtual Conference – Adapt & Advance

February 25 @ 7:30 am - 3:30 pm


Gross Automation is attending this event.

Plans that manufacturers made heading into 2020 were greatly disrupted as they faced extraordinary challenges that required them to quickly adapt to an unstable and rapidly changing business environment. After an initial period of uncertainty, manufacturers refocused their priorities on what was most important and got back to work.

“Adapt & Advance” is the theme of Manufacturing Matters! 2021, and this year’s conference will share insights into how organizations and individuals can overcome challenges and turn disruptions into opportunities for growth. The manufacturing landscape remains dynamic, and the new economy favors those who position themselves to succeed regardless of market forces and disruptions.

Our morning keynote speaker is Mike Evans, an award-winning author/speaker who has worked with 31 Fortune 50 companies. Mike served in executive leadership and consulting roles with Kotter International, FranklinCovey, and Tom Peters Company. Mike is an expert on the topic of disruption, and he will speak to how companies can thrive and excel in the new world of work.

Jim Davidson, our afternoon keynote speaker, is a New York Times Best-Selling author of The Ledge: An Inspirational Story of Friendship and Survival, and was featured on the International TV show I Shouldn’t Be Alive on the Discovery Channel. Jim will share stories, lessons and techniques for overcoming adversity and reaching lofty goals.

This year’s conference also features 12 breakout sessions in three tracks (Leadership, Operations, and Business Performance). These sessions include expert presentations and best practice panels that demonstrate how companies rapidly adapt to dynamic environments and advance their organizations.

We hope you can join us at our 2021 Manufacturing Matters! Conference. Individual tickets for manufacturers are only $150 with special rates available for group purchases.
