Watch the 2023 highlight video recap below:
On Tuesday, September 19th, the third annual Massachusetts Manufacturing Mash-Up attracted over 1,500 attendees to Polar Park, the home of the Worcester Red Sox, to celebrate the Commonwealth’s manufacturing sector. This year’s Mash-Up was the largest in the event’s history. The day-long event kicked off the agenda by hosting the 8th Annual Manufacturing Awards Ceremony organized by the co-chairs of the Legislature’s Manufacturing Caucus to recognize manufacturing leaders for their contributions to the industry. The state legislators and awardees were encouraged to join the networking, demonstrations, and activity along the concourse to visit the various sections from Manufacturer's Row, the Innovation Station, Got Talent?, FORGE Showcase, and the MassMakes exhibit.
This year's event added a “speed networking session” for community college students participating in the state’s MassBridge manufacturing tech training program to ask questions of company representatives, and exhibits highlighting the projects reshaping industries such as additive manufacturing, robotics, and photonics. Another exciting feature of the Mash-Up program was a STEM Challenge, which brought together 300 students from Innovation Pathways, a workforce development program that connects students with career opportunities in high demand industries.
To top off the event, Executive Office of Economic Development Undersecretary of Economic Strategies Sarah Stanton announced more than $2.2 million in grants through MassTech's Massachusetts Manufacturing Accelerate Program (MMAP) to 11 Massachusetts manufacturers. The MMAP grant program is managed by the Center for Advanced Manufacturing at MassTech (CAM) and helps small to medium-sized manufacturers in Massachusetts scale their businesses to compete in the modern manufacturing economy.
