Don't Miss Out on Your Chance to Grow Your Future Workforce – Participate in Manufacturing Day 2020!

Does your shop show well? Would a 13-year old walk in your facility and say “Wow, this is cool!”? If so, then consider participating in MFG Day 2020! It’s never too early to send a Save the Date to your local schools so they can get them on their calendars for this fall. Post your open house on NOW (you can edit it later), as schools are planning for fall field trips and need to see which companies they can visit.

MFG Day (October 2) is designed to expand knowledge about and improve general public perception of manufacturing careers and manufacturing’s value to the U.S. economy. This is a nationwide event and a unique opportunity for students, parents, and educators to see manufacturing in action and to ignite their interest in manufacturing careers. Over the last seven years, we’ve had great success with this event (in 2019, over 4,700 students visited 48 member open houses), and we want to continue that momentum!

To schedule an open house

  • Go to (new website for 2020) and click on the Host an Event button on the home page.

  • You will create an account and then register your event.

  • You’ll be able to designate the type of event (like an open house) and choose the hours for your event, among other choices. Consider holding your open house during hours that accommodate school field trips (9 – 3 p.m.), students/educators attending after school (3 p.m. and after), and students/parents attending after their work day (5 p.m. and after).

  • You may indicate any other restrictions you may have, like attire and if your event is open to only certain schools.

Signing up early is critical so that schools have plenty of time to schedule a field trip to your facility. Schools are planning NOW for fall field trips. Let’s make a grand showing! Make plans now to participate in this nationwide event! Add your open house to and edit the details in later!

MFG Day is produced the National Association of Manufacturers and organized locally by the Dayton Region Manufacturers Association, with support from FASTLANE-MEP.
