Top Shops Workshops

A live extension of Modern Machine Shop's successful Top Shops benchmarking program, the MMS Top Shops Workshops are where leading shops of all shapes, sizes and specialties connect to celebrate their contribution to the manufacturing community and to learn about the tools and technologies that will help them continue to lead and succeed. The 2020 Top Shops Workshops will emphasize not just the products and the processes that are driving manufacturing, but, more importantly, visitors will learn from and interact with their peers.

Register for one or all three workshops. Each includes:

  • Top Shops Data Presentation – Presented by Gardner Intelligence Director, Steve Kline, Jr.
  • Top Shops Manufacturing Panel – Hear from past and current Top Shop honorees
  • OEM Panel Discussion – OEMs discuss sourcing challenges, processes and what the future holds
  • Networking Happy Hour – 5:00 -7:00pm in the Modern Machine Shop Booth
