5th Annual National MBE Manufacturers Summit 2020

Join the Georgia Minority Business Development Agency (MBDA) Advanced Manufacturing Center virtually to experience the 5th Annual National MBE Manufacturers Summit (NMMS) 2020. As we transition to a digital, 3D platform, our aim is to provide Minority Business Enterprise (MBE) manufacturers with the resources required to rejuvenate and scale business in wake of COVID-19. In 2020, our focus shifted to helping MBEs gain access to innovative, technology-driven opportunities.

The Georgia MBDA Advanced Manufacturing Center is committed to helping MBE manufacturers to implement the Industrial Internet of Thing (IIoT) as a way to optimize operations and processes, improve preventative maintenance, create safer work environments and to scale. The National MBE Manufacturers Summit is the outgrowth of a major initiative by the U.S. Department of Commerce MBDA to focus on MBE manufacturers specifically, as our nation focuses on manufacturing in general. Our goal is to bring advanced opportunities to MBE manufacturers and to connect them with matchmaking meetings with large corporations.

The digital transformation of your organization is the key to its future, and our goal is to help you get connected. The theme, “The Future is Now,” emphasizes the value of implementing IIoT in daily operations, and how vital IIoT is to the scalability of your business.

Discover the latest innovative market trends, pitch your products to big buyers, learn new strategies and methods from manufacturing experts and convene with leading MBE manufacturers during NMMS 2020. 

Since its launch in 2016, the National MBE Manufacturers Summit provides influential U.S. MBE manufacturers a chance to experience interactive innovation, thought-provoking education and to meet with original equipment manufacturers (OEMs), corporations and Federal agencies. Over the last four years, about 800 MBEs participated in 500 fast-pitch one-on-one matchmaking sessions with 25+ major corporations and agencies to identify opportunities.
