MFG 2022: Celebrate Manufacturing Day October 7th or Any Day

Since 2012, Manufacturing Day/Month has grown across the nation with the goal of inspiring the future manufacturing workforce. Now celebrated all year long, the Florida Advanced Technological Education Center (FLATE), FloridaMakes and the Regional Manufacturers Associations (RMAs) provide support to our Manufacturers and our Educators to plan student tours and other events to showcase our manufacturing industry. Plan your event on Manufacturing Day, the 1st Friday in October, or any other day to introduce students to manufacturing and its many great careers.

You can participate in in October and all year with Florida's students! Event ideas include:
  • Plant tours, in-person or virtual
  • Community Events & Expos
  • Educational Fairs
  • Job Fairs
  • Competitions
  • Q&A Sessions with Manufacturers
Manufacturers and Educators interested in offering student tours or planning a custom event, reach out to your Regional Manufacturing Association (RMA).
