Challenges facing manufacturers today are numerous and significant. 

Fortunately, Wisconsin manufacturers are a resilient group and have successfully overcome a wide array of challenges including tight labor markets, inflation, economic slowdowns, supply chain disruptions, pandemics, and rapidly changing technologies. 

With this in mind, “Rising to the Challenge” is the theme of Manufacturing Matters! 2023, our 25th presentation of this premier Wisconsin manufacturing event. 

This year’s conference highlights best practices of manufacturers who have risen to the challenge and will also feature expert insights into what organizations can do going forward to overcome ongoing and future challenges.
