Registration Now Open: 2024 Supply Summit & Showcase

Register by January 29 to save $200!

We are thrilled to announce the opening of registration for the much-anticipated 2024 Supply Summit & Showcase Conference! Set in the heart of charming and centrally located Little Rock, Arkansas, this event promises to be a transformative experience for our members.

Discover Little Rock: A Blend of Natural Beauty and Rich History
Little Rock, Arkansas, a city filled with natural beauty, fascinating history, and an array of attractions, is the perfect backdrop for our conference. From state parks to landmarks, museums, and a vibrant music scene, Little Rock offers a diverse range of experiences. The city’s excellent restaurants, outdoor attractions, and world-class art collection make it an ideal destination to step away from daily manufacturing operations and gain fresh perspectives.

Knowledge is Power: Shaping Your Decision-Making
At the core of our conference is the commitment to providing critical industry knowledge. We understand that making informed choices is pivotal, and our focus revolves around key topics such as energy trends, workforce retention, brand development, sales and marketing, business transitions, succession planning, insurance trends, and more.

Three-Day Immersion at the Little Rock Marriott
Join us at the luxurious Little Rock Marriott, strategically located in the heart of downtown, for a three-day immersion in understanding industry issues, connecting with suppliers, and learning from one another. The Summit strikes a perfect balance, offering educational sessions, networking opportunities, social time, and business meetings.

Randy Reinke, Association President, emphasizes the value of hearing from both experts and fellow members. “The Summit provides a platform for those crucial “light bulb moments” that happen in the hallway, fostering conversations that can lead to innovative solutions for manufacturing challenges.”

The Supplier Product Showcase: April 4, 2023
A highlight of the Supply Summit is the Supplier Product Showcase, scheduled for April 4. Early response and limited showcase space suggest that this year’s event will sell out. We encourage suppliers to register early to secure their spots. Summit attendees find this showcase as an excellent opportunity to connect with current supply partners and explore new partnerships that can fuel business growth.

Beyond the Conference: Networking and Enjoyment
Stay tuned for exciting details about a visit to a state-of-the-art manufacturing facility, special outings for spouses/guests, and networking events, including a golf tournament, trap shoot, walk/run and a sampling of the local nightlife in Little Rock.

Don’t miss this opportunity to be part of a dynamic event that combines industry knowledge, networking, and the chance to explore new possibilities. We look forward to welcoming you to Little Rock for a conference that promises not just professional growth, but also an unforgettable experience!
