CAR T3 Manufacturing Summit

April 24, 2017 - April 25, 2017

The Auto Industry’s Call for Action:

Talent, technology changes, and capacity are constraining the industry’s ability to launch future products.

Over the next few years, the steady cadence of new vehicle introductions, combined with the introduction of new materials, new processes, and new technologies, present significant risks to the industry’s ability to execute product launches. The ability of the manufacturing and tooling sectors to respond is hindered by current capacity constraints and a significant shortage of skilled talent.

The Response:

Two days of critical content and networking

In coordination with several automakers the T3 Manufacturing Summit will engage OEMs, suppliers, policymakers, educators, workforce development, and other industry stakeholders in a summit designed to address these challenges, and to find ways to collaboratively pave the way to new opportunities and a successful future for U.S. advanced manufacturing.
