Steering Committee Members
Over the year’s we’ve hosted senior level executives from over 80% of the Fortune 100 as well as thousands of up and coming mid-market organizations.
"The IMPACT Summit is an amazing opportunity to network with a broad array of senior leaders and to expand your view of the possibilities. The event brings together newer tech innovators along with more established manufacturers and solution providers."
"The IMPACT format is very effective for getting up to date on current manufacturing technologies and product offerings. IMPACT provides an opportunity to meet directly with suppliers to have detailed discussions to better understand the products and services that match your areas of interest."
IMPACT is the manufacturing industry’s fastest growing event, quickly establishing a reputation as the deal generating show.
"The perfect balance between networking opportunities and scheduled meetings make IMPACT a successful way to discover new business partnerships. Additionally, the event organizers do an incredible effort at making this event as turn-key as possible for an exhibitor. The educational program features great speakers with relevant topics which allow for easy conversation."
The manufacturing industry's leading executive-level conference plays host to over 500 senior-level attendees each year. In the last decade, we’ve produced 10 large scale IMPACT conferences across America.
