Why Attend

THE BIG M is an unprecedented opportunity to connect with the advanced manufacturing experts, technologies, and solutions that are building the future NOW.

Why Sponsor

Sponsor at THE BIG M to increase brand recognition and exposure. Be a visible part of the event that is shaping the future of manufacturing.

  • Most executives, managers, engineers and other professionals just don’t have the time to keep up with everything that is going on [in the manufacturing industry]. THE BIG M brings all of that together under one roof for three days. You can see all of the new things – what’s leading-edge, what’s coming – in one place, at one time.
