More than 30,000 attendees are expected at the Indiana Convention Center, October 3-6, 2019
INDIANAPOLIS—A new convention and exposition, Made In America 2019, will bring together American professionals of all backgrounds at the Indiana Convention Center in Indianapolis, October 3-6, 2019. The event, billed as the largest collection of American-made products and manufacturing companies ever assembled under one roof, will feature more than 800 exhibitors and an expected 30,000 attendees, all with the common goal of growing American manufacturing. Together, this network of industrial professionals, conscious consumers, and keynote speakers plans to raise awareness of the economic, environmental, and community impact of U.S. manufacturing.
The trade show will feature a variety of brands and products, from textiles to transportation to aerospace.
“When people think of ‘made in the U.S.A.,’ they think of quality,” said Metro Steel USA Vice President Adam Nesmith, in a press release. “Being able to give them quality separates us from the other guys.”
MetroSteelUSA.com is a founding sponsor, along with other American brands, such as Ashland Technologies.
“We’re thrilled to be at the beginning stages of something that is going to be one of the biggest waves this country has ever seen,” said Bill Wydra of Ashland Technologies, who recently manufactured trains for roller coasters in Six Flags and SeaWorld.
Skybolt Aerospace Fasteners will also be in attendance to exhibit its aerospace fasteners that are used by NASA in space and by NASCAR on the race track. Liberty Tabletop, which was featured at the White House Made in America Week and is reported to be the only “U.S. made” silverware company, will also be an exhibitor.
The 450,000 square feet of trade show space will be open from Friday morning through Sunday evening. The kickoff show will take place on Thursday, October 3, 2019. This night will include keynote speakers and live performances by top-selling American billboard artists. Friday evening will highlight the past, present, and future of American manufacturing.
Saturday’s closing event will be the first annual “Made in America Awards” to honor the importance of U.S. manufacturing and to recognize the accomplishments of American production heroes, the heart and soul of homegrown manufacturing. Speakers include Harry Moser, founder of the Reshoring Initiative, which helps companies bring jobs back to the U.S.
