Making manufacturing trendy
The 8th Manufacturing Today Conference and Awards was held on September 25 at Taj Santacruz, Mumbai. It was a show to end all shows
Generally speaking, the manufacturing industry is not firing on all cylinders. That's because the market has not been kind to them in recent times. Though the government has stepped in and is helping, the measures proposed will take some time before on can see results.
But the team at Manufacturing Today was keen that they continue with the platform that appreciates the sector's efforts and recognise them. In its 8th year, the Manufacturing Today Conference and Awards pulled out all stops to ensure that participants had a great evening, took home some learnings, and have their spirits uplifted.
There were several ways to do this. One was to get them some noted and distinguished speakers who could tell them that they continue with what they are doing, and that good times will come soon. The other was to recognise their initiatives through the Awards function.
With 15 categories, this time Manufacturing Today decided to invite digital nominations. We did that successfully. The grand Jury had a tough time scanning through the forms as most of them had done excellent work in the sphere they operate in.
The first panel disccusion had plant heads from leading manufacturing companies.
The panel discussion on CEOs saw heads of companies share insights on what is ailing the industry and the solutions for them.
