2021 Manufacturers' Summit Overview

We're pleased to announce our 2021 Manufacturers' Summit was a resounding success. We can't thank our sponsors, speakers, and attendees enough for making the day so wonderful. A record crowd of over 330 attendees from around the state of South Dakota showed up to the annual event, hosted at Southeast Technical College. We had 125 different manufacturing companies, post-secondary institutions, and manufacturing partners attend the event together.

Keynote, John McElligott, kicked the day off on the right note talking about the future of work and automation. The attendees then broke out into the breakout sessions in the different speaking tracks of Workforce, Automation, Quality, Supply Chain, and Biotech.
