Manufacturing. Together.
Recent events have reaffirmed the power and importance of North American manufacturers working together. From concept to CAD; production to post-process. Inventor to investor; job shop to OEM. The North American Manufacturing supply chain represents more possibility and potential than ever before – if it finds new and better ways to work together. That is what Top Shops is and what Top Shops is for – Manufacturing. Together.

What Past Attendees are Saying

We actually received a call from a supply chain director from a company in the Midwest because of our participation in Top Shops. This company needed a higher level supply base to support a contract that they'd
been awarded so they came out and did a survey and we ended up winning about a five year contract just solely through the exposure we received from Top Shops.

- JD MACHINE 

The primary benefit of Top Shops is the fact that it is not a traditional
conference. It's not a traditional trade show. It's not a traditional networking event. It's all of the
above. So it provides value to a participant that it may take you three events to go to and we're
combining it all into one really robust, really comprehensive industry event. If

- The Association for Manufacturing Technology 

It's really important to keep up with best practices because it allows us to maintain our
competitive advantage in the marketplace. We need to stay up on the latest trends, the latest
technology, tooling techniques, machining techniques and that's really what allows us to continue to grow and build our business. That's why we invest in Top Shops.
