Digital Manufacturing User Group connects Midwest-industry peers

Feb. 13, 2018
Sip, share and socialize with fellow manufacturing professionals.

Putman Media is pleased to introduce the Digital Manufacturing User Group, a community of industrial professionals interested in IIoT, smart devices, and how technology is changing the world of maintenance and manufacturing. The group, hosted through social site Meetup, enables members to talk with the Smart Industry and Plant Services teams, interact with professionals in their area, and attend after-work networking/educational events.

These casual networking get-togethers offer manufacturing and industry professionals the chance to enjoy conversation and a cold beverage with peers. The first event is March 7 from 6–8 p.m. at Granite City in Schaumburg, IL, and will be hosted by Plant Services and Smart Industry editors. If you'd like to attend, just join the Digital Manufacturing User Group on Meetup and RSVP for the event.
