Indianapolis To Host First-Ever ‘Made In U.S.A.’ Trade Show

(INDIANAPOLIS, INDIANA) – MADE IN AMERICA 2019, the first-ever exposition and celebratory event solely focusing on U.S. manufacturing and products made in the United States, will take place at the Indiana Convention Center in Indianapolis this October.

With more than 800 exhibitors and 30,000 attendees expected, this four-day event will bring together the largest-ever network of industry professionals, keynote speakers and conscious consumers for one common goal: Raising awareness for the economic, environmental and community impact of American manufacturing.

“We are so pleased to announce that the inaugural Made in America 2019 show will be held in Indianapolis,” MADE IN AMERICA 2019 President and CEO Don Buckner, Sr., said. “After meeting with several venues around the country, we selected the Indianapolis Convention Center for its facilities, which are second to none.”

For this monumental event, more than 450,000 square feet of the Indiana Convention Center has been reserved to showcase American-made machines and products by 800 U.S. manufacturers.

While all exhibitors will share a commonality in their U.S.-based productions, the variety of represented product categories and industries will be incredibly vast, ranging from aerospace and automobiles to apparel and textiles, event officials said.

The MADE IN AMERICA 2019 Kickoff Show will take place on Thursday, October 3rd.  This night will include live performances by top-selling American billboard artists and keynote speakers.

On Friday, October 4th, MADE IN AMERICA 2019 will feature the past, present and future of American manufacturing, with speeches by industry leaders and a celebration honoring U.S. Military Veterans who helped lay the foundation for American manufacturing.

The closing evening event on Saturday, October 5th, will be the first annual MADE IN AMERICA Awards to honor the American manufacturing tradition and to recognize the accomplishments of American production heroes, the heart and soul of homegrown manufacturing.

Wow! 'Accolades to whoever is responsible for this wonderfully-inspired and organized demonstration of Made In America Products!' I'm 'certain' it will be vastly educational. Perhaps, in the future, the venue could be scheduled in a way for high schools students to visit as a field trip. This is what the youth of America 'needs to see and learn.' Again, Congrats! to many.
