Recap of The MFG Meeting: 2012
More than 750 manufacturing executives came together in Orlando the second week of March for the second edition of The MFG Meeting. This meeting kicked off Thursday with a record-breaking number of attendees listening to Joe Gibbs, Hall of Fame Head Coach of the Washington Redskins and owner and founder of Joe Gibbs Racing. Coach Gibbs brought into focus the three priorities of living a successful life, which are God, family, and job. By listening to his personal experiences in keeping with these priorities, the audience walked away with a great deal of food for thought.
Throughout the rest of The MFG Meeting top notch speakers and interactive breakout sessions kept participants engaged the entire three days. Click here for post-meeting press release.

Quotes from our 2012 Sponsors:
Sandvik Coromant and Gardner Publications, both key players in the industry were top sponsors for the event and had great things to say.
“Last year’s successful inaugural MFG set the bar for very high expectations this year,” said Brian Norris, Vice President of Marketing for Sandvik Coromant, the conference’s Gold sponsor. “I can say without a doubt that the conference delivered even beyond last year. We hosted a mix of customers, machine tool partners and industry association leadership that was engaged and thoroughly committed to keeping manufacturing vibrant. I was impressed by the high quality speakers and thought-provoking topics, and most importantly, I had plenty of networking opportunities with other attendees.”
“We at Gardner Publications are pleased to have been The MFG Meeting’s Media Sponsor, said Rick Kline, Sr., President and CEO of Gardner Publications. This conference has become a landmark event for builders, distributors and users throughout the manufacturing technology industry, and the focus of the meeting closely mirrors the focus of Modern Machine Shop. The unique forum setting brings to life the best practices and principles that we discuss daily in our website, blog and magazine. We look forward to continuing to support the industry through this event.”
