FEBRUARY 14, 2019 – Riverside Convention Center

Reserve now!  The 2017 Summit Survey told us that 86% of attendees thought the keynote and breakout sessions were “excellent and very good” – right on target for the industry.  We will be back in April with applicable topics for take-away at all levels of manufacturing. Bring your HR staff, your floor supervisors and your executives for another exciting 6 hours of idea generation. Manufacturers and supporters of manufacturing in the Inland Empire will find this a tremendous value.
