2018 MForesight National Summit

Read a recap of the event


Manufacturing Prosperity

What does the future hold for American manufacturing? On one hand, U.S. industry still faces grand challenges—including the erosion of industrial commons and the offshoring of both manufacturing production and R&D. On the other hand, American manufacturing faces transformative opportunities—including high performance materials, ubiquitous sensors, automation, smart manufacturing, and other emerging trends and technologies taking hold here. 

The MForesight National Summit 2018 will explore answers to the big questions for American manufacturing. The Summit is a unique one-day event that attracts many of the nation's foremost manufacturing experts, business leaders, and decision-makers to explore strategies for creating and sustaining manufacturing jobs, preserving the innovation edge, national security, and maintaining global competitiveness. 

Earlier this year, MForesight hit the road, conducting roundtables with thought leaders in cities across the United States, to identify bold and actionable recommendations for public and private stakeholders to restore America’s manufacturing capabilities, and capture the full value from our R&D investments. At this year’s summit, MForesight will unveil recommendations from these roundtables and explore strategies for helping them take hold.

We hope you can join us on Wednesday, June 13 for the 2018 Summit.
