Manufacturing Day

Manufacturing Day is a celebration of modern manufacturing meant to inspire the next generation of innovators and makers. While national Manufacturing Day is officially the first day of each October, Iowa companies and community organizations can plan their events for any date that works best for them.

Iowa Manufacturing Day events are a great first step in inspiring the next generation of employees, sharing information about your business, or for educators to connect with local employers. “MFG Day” event support and training is available to help support many event structures, such as:

  • Facility Tours open to students, families or the public.
  • Community-wide manufacturing events, celebrations or job fairs.
  • Visits to classrooms to share about careers in manufacturing.

We work with partners to help companies and communities connect with educators for Manufacturing Day events. Let us help you expand your talent pipeline through Iowa Manufacturing Day! For assistance on planning or participating in a Manufacturing Day event, contact: manufacturingday@iastate.edu.
