NTMA’s Premier Manufacturing Conference is going VIRTUAL!!!

After months of careful consideration, NTMA has decided to transition our Fall Conference, Engage 2020, to an “all virtual” event: coming November 17th-20th, 2020. Please note the new dates – the change will help to accommodate all attendees and remove conflicts with other key industry events.

Bringing the precision manufacturing industry together– to network, learn, and grow with each other – has long been at the heart of NTMA’s mission, and it will continue to be. Going virtual will allow us to connect more professionals than ever before!

Although we won’t be able to meet in person, NTMA is committed to providing a format of the highest quality: an unprecedented event for unprecedented times. In going virtual, we remain confident in our ability to offer attendees important, industry-relevant content, and we are working with our speakers, corporate sponsors, and internal teams to make sure all participants can be engaged, informed, and enjoy the same level of connection that the manufacturing industry not only deserves, but needs in this time.

With our new online platform, Engage 2020 can provide new, exciting, and endless possibilities for all attendees to build on the strength of an industry that has continued to grow and thrive, even during a most difficult situation.

More information about the virtual event, including the updated agenda and speaker list is available and regularly updated at We’ll share additional plans for the virtual event in the coming weeks through our website and via email.

We hope you’ll join us, November 17th-20th for a true virtual event – No Masks Required! – and a new, exciting way to Engage with the nation’s largest network of Precision Manufacturers.
