MESA and Industry Week: A match made in manufacturing technology


MESA is bringing our knowledge to IW's Best Plants Conferance 2013. Why? Because manufacturing enterprise solutions is an important part of driving performance. And as we approach 2013, manufacturers take risks by not knowing what MESAknows.

For our members and prospective members, 
this is the MESA conference!!

Join MESA on Monday, April 22nd
  • MESA International Business Forum - Members-Only Meeting:
MESA members are invited to attend our Business Forum to kick off the IndustryWeek Best Plants 2013 event. Meet the MESA International President, Board of Directors and fellow industry MES professionals.
Learn about recent MESA accomplishments and future objectives. Dive into the MESA Global Education Program (GEP) and on-going strategic initiatives. And, champion your own cause by telling MESA leaders what you need from the association to deliver on-going value in your organization.
This session is a MESA International members-only event. If you're interested in attending as a non-member, please contact MESA Executive Director, DeAnn Fedyski, at
  • MESA unConference - Available to all IW Best Plants attendees: Proceeding the Forum, we're bringing our famous 'unConference' format to Greenville to offer manufacturers/producers a safe, open environment to address your most pressing challenges. These sessions offer a rich, interactive environment in which knowledge sharing works best. Forget the lectures, let's roll up our sleeves! In a MESA unConference, you set the agenda. So, what's most important to you - how to tie operations metrics to financial performance? Justifying Manufacturing IT projects? Making Continuous Improvement stick? Standards? Methodologies? Technologies?
    • We'll have two concurrent sessions, so bring all your burning challenges*. Experienced MESA professionals will moderate the discussions between you and your peers, encouraging all to contribute to the sharing of ideas and lessons learned. But be careful - you just might gain new insights that will benefit you and your organization! *Submit your challenges here today or bring them on-site.
Stay for the conference Tuesday and Wednesday
  • Powerhouse keynotes, invaluable networking events, and educational sessions with real-life case studies. MESA brings the technology component to the conference. Not only will there be two sessions delivered by MESA and members, but also a special on-going track called Manufacturing Technology Strategies.
Whether you participate as an attendee, exhibitor, speaker, or sponsor - industry will look at your company differently because they'll see you know what MESAknows.
