Manufacturing matters to Washington's communities and economy. To highlight the variety and strength of Washington's manufacturers, AWB is crossing the state during our first-ever Manufacturing Week Tour.

The week has three different parts:

Manufacturing Week Bus Tour

Road trip! From Port Angeles to Pasco and Spokane to Seattle, manufacturing is the economic base of our local and state economies. AWB President Kris Johnson and other members of the AWB team are hopping on a bus to tour more than 50 Washington state manufacturers during the first week of October.

These diverse manufacturers in towns large and small will open their doors to neighbors, media, their legislators and other who want to see the high-tech modern shop floors that are rarely open to the public.

If you'd like to get involved with Manufacturing Week, contact the AWB's Thomas Gill at 800.521.9325 to learn more, or check our Manufacturing Week Tour page for live updates from the road!

Manufacturing Summit

Join leaders from industry, education and government in Seattle for a day of thoughtful discussion and useful networking. This will be your chance to talk directly with policy-makers about what you need to see in regulatory reform and workforce education to make your business a success.

We'll also honor the best and brightest in Washington manufacturing during presentation of the Manufacturing Excellence Awards.

Registration is now open for Manufacturing Summit. Reserve your spot today!

Manufacturing Day

We'll end our Manufacturing Week with a national event, organized by the National Association of Manufacturers: MFG Day! Across the country, manufacturers will open their shop floors to students, teachers, elected officials and their neighbors. This will be a time to show off modern manufacturing and demonstrate the quality jobs open in today's manufacturing environments.

Last year's Manufacturing Day was a huge success, and this year's event will be even bigger. Contact Amy Anderson at the AWB Institute to get involved, or click here to learn more.
