Georgia Manufacturing Expo - June 8, 2013
A Message from Jason Moss, Founder of NetworkingMFG & the Georgia Manufacturing Expo:
There has been a growing trend by companies as well as individuals to buy local goods that promote jobs in their community, but until now there has been no easy way to identify products made in our state. The Georgia Manufacturing Expo is the first step in solving this problem. Companies participating in the expo will be included in the Georgia Manufacturing Directory that when completed, will contain a listings of all the consumer and industrial products manufactured in Georgia.
Over the past two years I have offered to give a crisp new $100 bill to thousands of Georgia consumers if they could name just five products that are manufactured in Georgia. Only one in ten responded with any answer, and most are surprised with how little they know about Georgia manufacturers. Sadly, consumers have bought into the lie that, "We just don't make things in America anymore". This grass roots movement will correct the record and help businesses and individual consumers identify and purchase products that are made locally.
The Georgia Manufacturing Expo is a unique community outreach opportunity to highlight the positive impact manufacturing has on our economy and how each company provides a vital link in the manufacturing chain.
Exhibitors will benefit from the statewide advertising and publicity this event will generate. We are in communication with the Governor's office, schools both K-12 and colleges, chambers of commerce, news and media outlets. The expo directory with company listing and information will be sent out in the newspaper to 154,000 homes the Sunday prior to the expo and we will also give out 10,000 of these directories at the event.
