NATM is encouraging members to take part in this year’s Manufacturing Day, taking place on Friday, October 5th. Produced by the National Association of Manufacturers, Manufacturing Day is the industry’s opportunity to showcase all it has to offer. By working together, the manufacturing industry can address the skilled labor shortage, help change the public’s perception on the industry and empower the future generation of manufacturers.
There are several ways for NATM members to get involved in this year’s Manufacturing Day. Open your doors to aspiring manufacturers, show your support for the industry and attend a fellow manufacturer’s event or sponsor a local event. Manufacturing Day events can be held any time during the month of October. If you plan to host an event, don’t forget to let NATM know!
Registration for the 31st Annual NATM Annual Convention & Trade Show is now open.
Plan to join us in Lake Buena Vista, Fla. Feb. 19-21, 2019 for NATM’s 31st Annual Convention & Trade Show at Disney's Coronado Springs Resort. With more than 1000 trailer manufacturer and supplier attendees per year and growing, this "must attend" event provides education, networking and communication for suppliers and trailer manufacturers in the industry.
Registration opened the beginning of September with discounted early bird registration rates available until Dec. 31 for both trailer manufacturers and exhibitors. This year NATM is excited to offer free full registrations for trailer manufacturers’ spouses. NATM hopes you will plan to bring your better half along to enjoy the show. Come early or stay late as Disney Coronado Springs Resort offers the discounted NATM rate of $165/night two days prior to the convention, as well as the two days after the show. Disney is known for their service and Disney’s Coronado Springs Resort will not disappoint.
We hope you will help us wrap up the Convention and Trade Show with an evening filled with food, drinks and fireworks at Disney’s Epcot. This event you won’t want to miss.
