Opportunities to Connect

Connect with GMA at some of our monthly and annual events!

The Georgia Manufacturing Alliance hosted over 100 events last year providing manufacturing professionals opportunities to make valuable connections across the state. Through the events that we host, our mission is to create a community of industry professionals that can share ideas, leads, and best business practices to provide a more vibrant economy in Georgia. By working together through events like these, we are building a stronger manufacturing community.


Plant Tours

We typically host at least 5 plant tours a month giving our GMA Members and guests the opportunity to have an inside look at high quality, state-of-the art facilities around the state. We have toured highly recognizable names such as Blue Bird Bus, Daniel Defense, Gulfstream, KIA Motors, Kings Hawaiian, Husquvarna, Olympic Steel, Savannah Bee, Southwire and Yamaha.

We also like to tour and highlight smaller companies that provide valuable parts and services to industries around the world. We cap tours at 30 attendees so everyone can network with peers while seeing best business practices in action. 


Networking

We host 4 networking events a month which give manufacturers and service providers the opportunity to share ideas, pass referrals and stay up to date for what is happening in the manufacturing community.

Held in Alpharetta, Atlanta, Gainesville, and Suwanee these sessions offer our GMA Members the opportunity to have the Reserved Industry Seat so they are the “go to” person in their group for that service.


Educational Sessions

Helping our members stay ahead of the learning curve is an important aspect of our mission at GMA. We keep a pulse on what is happening in the industry and provide Educational Workshops on topics such as International Manufacturing, Leadership Development, LinkedIn Training, Safety/OSHA Regulations, Sales & Marketing, Social Media and Workforce Development.

Typically a 2 hour Lunch & Learn format, each workshop is designed to give you concise and specific training that will keep you motivated and help lead your team to success. 


Georgia Manufacturing Summit

Industry professionals gather to discuss the issues most important to Georgia manufacturers.

Business leaders will have a unique opportunity to network with their peers and share their insight and recommendations. The Summit is designed to  support Georgia's entire manufacturing community.
