NH Business Resource Center
"Growth Through Collaboration" is the theme of the Ninth Annual Governor's Advanced Manufacturing and High Technology Summit to be held Wednesday, December 7th from 7:30 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. at the Center of New Hampshire Radisson Hotel in Manchester.
The annual event is presented by the New Hampshire Division of Economic Development, the Business and Industry Association of New Hampshire, the New Hampshire Manufacturing Extension Partnership and the New Hampshire High Technology Council and will bring together state and national leaders of business and industry who, in thought-provoking presentations and workshops, will focus on how New Hampshire's high tech and manufacturing industries can stimulate growth through collaboration.
"Manufacturing and high tech sectors continue to be very important to New Hampshire's economy," Gov. John Lynch said. "We have a successful economic strategy in place here in New Hampshire that has allowed us to be a national economic leader. That is why it is important we continue to work together to ensure we are making the right investments as a state to strengthen our economy for the future."
Speakers at the summit will include Lynn Tilton, Chief Executive Officer and Principal of Patriarch Partners, LLC; economist Dennis Delay of the New Hampshire Center for Public Policy Studies; and Roger Kilmer, Director of Manufacturing Extension Partnership (MEP), a program of the U.S. Department of Commerce National Institute of Standards and Technology. Tilton, whose company bought and reopened the former Fraser Papers paper mill in Gorham in May as Gorham Paper and Tissue, will speak on "How To Save American Manufacturing;" while "Smart Manufacturing/High Technology - NH's Leading Economic Sector" will be the subject of Delay's address. Kilmer, the keynote speaker at the summit luncheon, will address "Becoming a Next Generation Manufacturer."
Three one-hour workshops will be offered concurrently and presented twice during the morning session by a panel of industry experts: "Supply Chain Development and Collaboration," "Developing the Future Workforce in NH Advanced Manufacturing" and "Technology-Driven Market Intelligence."
Sponsors for the event include Citizens Bank, BAE Systems, Chapter #327/Southern New Hampshire of the Society of Manufacturing Engineers, New Hampshire Business Review, the New Hampshire Department of Education, Southern New Hampshire Chapter #253 of the Association for Operations Management, TradePort USA and the New Hampshire Machining Association.
