We recently wrapped up our Engage Summit West 2022 conference in Costa Mesa, California. It was the third time NTMA members were able to gather in person since the pandemic began, and the energy and excitement were palpable throughout the entire two-day experience.
If you’re interested in attending an NTMA regional conference in the future, here’s a VIP look at what our conferences offer, complete with real testimonials from attendees.
What You’ll Find at an Engage Summit Conference
We always plan top-quality programming for our conference attendees. Engage Summit West 2022 featured keynotes from a variety of brilliant speakers, including a state of the industry address from The Association for Manufacturing Technology’s Chris Chidzik, an assessment of the latest reshoring trends from expert Harry Moser, and a guide to marketing in the digital age from Shawn Fitzgerald, president of Thomas.
But must-see keynotes aren’t the only reason to attend an Engage Summit conference. Our breakout sessions cover many important topics, like digitization, sales and marketing, attracting talent, and government and advocacy updates.
Attendees can also look forward to shop tours of successful local machine shops. At Engage Summit West 2022, they toured Moseys Production Machinists and Ricaurte Precision.
