Wed. June 13| 3:00 PM - 4:00 PM | Booth 1677

The manufacturing environment is changing, and with the rapid advancement of new technology, it is becoming increasingly difficult to find workers with the skills to use it. This panel discussion and networking session will help attendees understand that who and how they hire to work on the factory floor is going to be very different in the days/years ahead, and also highlights the skills advanced manufacturers are looking for in operators and technicians, including problem solving, CAD design, coding, and 3D printer operation. This session ends with a Q&A and networking opportunity.
