Panel Discussion

Bay Area Manufacturing: The Next Five Years

Industry leaders will discuss what manufacturing in the Bay Area will look like in the next five years. They will share their knowledge and experience with current and future regulations, sustainable business practices, emerging technologies, and managing supply chains, as well as offer insight into regional economic and labor market trends. 

Moderated by Lance Hastings
