"Make it Happen!" is our 2019 Manufacturing Matters! conference theme. Manufacturers’ confidence hasn't been this high in years. The economy is strong, and more things become possible each day.

There are, of course, challenges in this dynamic business environment.  Labor is tightening.  Technologies are changing the way work is done. Tariffs are creating uncertainty.  Better, faster, cheaper, cleaner, and “right now” are the mantras of key customers. 

But the pros outweigh the cons and this environment favors the bold, those who “Make it Happen” now rather than sitting on the sidelines to see who will pass them by. 

We look forward to exploring ideas and best practices to help companies “Make it Happen” now, whether that is getting more out of your existing resources, automating processes, diversifying your customer base, making your company the employer of choice, or securing needed certifications and credentials.

We are excited to announce our 2019 Manufacturing Matters! Keynote Speaker, Dr. Bill Mitchell. Dr. Mitchell is President and CEO of Aguila, a Foxconn company, and a VP of Business Operations for the Foxconn Corporation.

Over the past 25 years, Mitchell has worked with more than 500 corporations and organizations, helping develop best of breed practices to provide long-term success.

Dr. Mitchell has an excellent understanding of the local, regional, and global manufacturing environments and trends, and will share his perspective on how Wisconsin Manufacturers can “Make it Happen” for their organizations. 

There will be 18 total breakout sessions to choose from with three sessions in each of the following six conference tracks: 

  • Workforce Excellence
  • Improving Productivity
  • Leading for Success
  • Strategic Growth
  • Leveraging Sustainability
  • Industry 4.0/Technology
