Still time to register: Reserve your spot for the Nov. 12 Manufacturing Summit

Washington is home to some of the most innovative manufacturing operations – from drones to the Mars Rover Project at Washington State University and hard cider to cutting-edge sports mouthguard technology to better protect athletes. Now is the time to register for the 2015 AWB Manufacturing Summit, which will be held Nov. 12 at the Crowne Plaza in SeaTac. The summit is presented by RSM, formerly McGladrey.

With so much changing in the manufacturing sector, this is the chance to see what areas are growing and how the old notion of manufacturing is obsolete. There are just two weeks left to register, so reserve your spot today.
