CLEVELAND, March 11, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Based on the success of its 2012 inaugural event held at the Galleria in downtown Cleveland, the 2013 Manufacturing Mart Trade Show is moving to the John S. Knight Center in Akron. The dates are set for May 14-15, 2013.
"This larger facility allows even more manufacturers to showcase their new materials, technology and manufacturing know-how," says Manufacturing Mart Founder and President Mary Kaye Denning. "Last year's trade show featured 140 exhibitors and over 3,000 attendees. And with demand for 'American Made' products growing every day, now is the time to reserve exhibition space and sponsorship opportunities."
Manufacturing Mart 2013 provides networking, sales and sourcing opportunities. "It's a chance for manufacturers to create critical partnerships that keep jobs in Ohio and the United States," says Denning. "Our exhibitors make up the 'Great American Supply ChainTM'. They're supplying quality parts to GE, Whirlpool, Boeing, United Technologies, Caterpillar, GM, Honda, Chrysler and Ford," says Denning.
Manufacturing Mart 2013 also features two days of educational seminars covering marketing, social media, strategic partnerships, legal advice, access to capital, succession planning, government contracts, and growing your business.
Exhibitors can take advantage of an early bird discount that reduces the cost of a 10' x 10' booth from $1,900 to $1,520. To realize this discount you must register by March 31, 2013. Sponsorships range from $1,000 to $30,000 and include items such as publicity, signage, advertising, video, admission, e-communications, booth space and naming rights.
For attendees the cost is $85 each day which includes continental breakfast, light lunch and access to all exhibitors and educational sessions. Or you can purchase a two-day pass for $250 which includes a networking cocktail party on the evening of May 14th. (Early bird pricing is only $200).
The Manufacturing Mart is a matchmaker for manufacturers seeking to supply American companies with components, supplies and services. It also provides services for helping manufacturers improve efficiencies, increase profits and grow sales. It was founded in 2010 and is headquartered in Cleveland, OH.
