2017 NA Conference CALL FOR SPEAKERS 

Deadline: December 16, 2016

MESA International has accepted the challenge of demonstrating “The Real Value of Smart Manufacturing” within IndustryWeek’s Manufacturing & Technology Conference & Expo.

  • have shown real, quantifiable business value through “Smart” approaches,
  • embrace innovation,
  • can openly discuss projects/initiatives, their pitfalls and results, and
  • will articulate key, actionable takeaways for session attendees.

Prospective speakers are invited to submit original contributions on all aspects relevant to the conference theme*.  (See ‘Submission Requirements’ below.)  

Presentations can address solutions in companies of any size and in any industry or geography and can cover the entire range of activities in a manufacturing enterprise, from design for manufacturability to production execution, analysis, enterprise integration and beyond. 

A few examples are:
