Manufacturing Day is celebrated on the first Friday of October and opens its doors to celebrate the success of the American manufacturing sector! The date was created not only for those who enter this sphere, but also for those who observe it from afar. Today, people come together to discuss the importance of processes at the local, national and global levels.
The Manufacturers Association of America founded the holiday in 2012. The official proclamation was signed by Donald Trump in 2019, marking the start of over 200 successful events in the Midwest! These events were attended by the public, students, businessmen, teachers, and those who are not indifferent to the cause. Since then, the popularity of the holiday has grown, with the number of participants increasing exponentially. Fairs, exhibitions, factory tours, and seminars are held at the highest level. Many Americans look forward to announcements of what to expect from the founders in the coming year.
Notably, industry in America:
- plays an integral role in creating jobs and improving the quality of life of the population;
- is one of the most advanced in the world;
- is projected to increase the number of jobs by 4 million by 2030;
- inspires the future workforce.
