2020 Manufacturing Awards Breakfast and Awards Ceremony in the Three Rivers Ballroom at the Ramada Plaza by Wyndham Fort Wayne Hotel & Conference Center

About the Event - NOW VIRTUAL

First held in 2020, the Northeast Indiana Manufacturing Awards recognize outstanding manufacturers in our region. Assisted by area manufacturing leaders, this networking event brings together top plant managers, vendors, political leaders and the public to discuss issues of importance to this critical segment of our community's employment base. Companies are nominated for awards and then voted on by the readers of KPC’s newspapers and websites for their commitment to excellence, workplace diversity, environmentally-friendly practices, innovative workplaces and the overall strength of manufacturing in our Northeast Indiana communities. This year the awards will be given out in a live virtual event featuring keynote speaker Chris Tuff, aka "The Millennial Whisperer." Chris will share valuable insight on how to connect with your Millennial and Gen Z workforce and become more effective networkers and sales people through genuine engagement.
