The highlight of the event will be over 100 Georgia manufacturers exhibiting their products and services. In addition to the two day Expo, a series of year-round programming has been established to spotlight and support Georgia manufacturers. To assist in overall strategy and execution, the Georgia Manufacturing Expo is excited to announce its 2014 Honorary Advisory Board and Leadership Team.
For a first year show, the 2013 Georgia Manufacturing Expo was a success in large part because of a small group of dedicated volunteers and one part time intern.
