Every year, the National Association of Manufacturers’ (NAM) State of Manufacturing Tour builds a national media and digital spotlight to showcase modern manufacturing in America. It reached 50 million people in 2017. The spotlight re-emerges on February 12 with an eight-day and eight-state tour.

The tour starts with NAM President and CEO Jay Timmons at Automation Alley in Troy, Michigan, delivering NAM’s State of Manufacturing Address. And, in partnership with the NAM’s Manufacturing Institute and the leading state manufacturing association partners, there will be parent meetings, manufacturing headquarters and site tours, employee town halls, Facebook Live forums and interviews, visits to technical and community colleges, national and local broadcasts and more opportunities to bring to life the real story of what is achievable in modern manufacturing.

Check out this year’s tour schedule at CreatorsWanted.org/MFGTour, and visit the site when the tour is underway to track their progress.
