MFG Day Messaging Guide for Partners
Once your local manufacturer has registered their Manufacturing Day event and you want to help them spread the word, you can engage your local community in MFG Day by using traditional, and social, media to amplify your partner's event and reach more people. Below are tips to help make the day a success using social media and other resources. (See the MMEC MFG Day website for more info and resources for planning or partnering on a MFG Day event.)
Social media is an excellent resource for your local manufacturer's MFG Day event. By sharing their event on social media platforms, tagging attendees and posting photos, you can help them maximize their reach.
