Governor Hutchinson has declared October to be Manufacturing month! NTI Business & Industry is excited to host Northwest Arkansas’ annual Manufacturing Day Event on October 26, 2017. This event will celebrate Northwest Arkansas’ manufacturing industry and celebrate that manufacturing is a growing and thriving industry. Attendees will have an opportunity to learn about the vast array of things that are made in their own backyards, and get a chance to see demonstrations by local career and technical education students. Last year's event drew hundreds of students as well as school administrators and local officials in our community. Come enjoy a free hot dog lunch on us! Over 800 students, manufacturers, elected officials, and community members are expected to attend this year’s event. Manufacturing Day is free and open to the public. Manufacturing Day will be happening 9:00 a.m. until 3:00 p.m. at Northwest Technical Institute on October 26.
