Event Details


***2 Keynotes, 3 Panels, Lunch, Evening Reception***

***Speakers from Texas, Oklahoma, & Washington, DC***

The recent pandemic has indicated an unanticipated fragility in our nation’s manufacturing supply chain. An aggressive push towards reshoring American manufacturing requires efforts across a spectrum of policy, laws, universities, trades and infrastructure enabling expansion, leadership and speed for our nation’s defense industrial base of small and medium sized manufacturers.

In this first-of-its-kind event, we are bringing together key stakeholders across all levels of government. Join us as we view the entire manufacturing ecosystem from multiple perspectives and explore actionable ideas with the goal to remake America’s manufacturing base into a hyper-connected, secure, and resilient ecosystem of domestic suppliers who can more easily connect and interact.
