From process, design and production engineers to plant managers, job shop owners and corporate management, FABTECH’s education program provides a valuable learning experience to benefit every member of your team.”

Several new special events have been added to the program such as a Workshop on Lean Manufacturing for Managers that will be offered on Sunday, November 11. There will also be a panel discussion with seasoned Washington, DC, government relations experts on how the presidential and congressional election results will impact U.S. manufacturing; a special roundtable with five manufacturing CEOs on “The State of the Industry: Manufacturers’ Executive Outlook;” and various new product presentations taking place daily in the FABTECH Theaters.
