Top Women summit in manufacturing set on October 3 to 5

The Top Women summit in the manufacturing sector is scheduled for October 3-5, 2018 in Indianapolis, IN. The Women in Manufacturing Association (WiM) announced today that it will hold its eighth annual SUMMIT at the city’s JW Marriott Hotel. The popular three-day conference will build on the success of previous years’ sold-out events. This year’s SUMMIT is expected to attract over 350 top women in the industry for a jam-packed schedule of high-profile keynote speakers and educational breakout sessions, as well as exclusive local plant tours and networking opportunities.

Registration for the Summit is now open. Attendees who register by July 1, 2018 will receive an early-bird discount and save $50 on their registration. More information about the SUMMIT, including an agenda (in formation), is available on the WiM website.

WiM is the only national trade association dedicated to year-round support for women in the manufacturing sector. WiM provides regular regional and national programming, and the annual Summit is the cornerstone of WiM’s outreach to women industry leaders.

“We look forward to the WiM Summit every year as an opportunity to bring together our members and supporters from all across the country,” said WiM President Allison Grealis. “Our country currently has a strong commitment to the manufacturing industry, and to supporting the growth of jobs and opportunities in our sector. There could not be a better time for us to gather together, share best practices, and build networks for success.”

The WiM SUMMIT is unique in its endeavor to address the topics of most relevance to women in the industry. WiM incorporates a wide range of voices and perspectives in shaping the SUMMIT content through the formation of an event Host Committee, which helps to plan and coordinate the event. A limited number of seats on the Host Committee are still available. For more information and to get involved contact Kristin Moore at

“The SUMMIT provides a unique opportunity to celebrate,” continued Grealis. “We’ll be celebrating the women who are examples of the changing face of success in modern manufacturing. And we’ll be celebrating the many opportunities available for challenging and rewarding careers in manufacturing today.”
