Event Description:

2020 Manufacturer's Jobs and Innovation Showcase

Emphasizing the important role of manufacturing is a priority of the South Dakota Chamber of Commerce and Industry.  The Chamber works on legislative remedies to industry needs and continually champions the economic importance of the industry and the tremendous employment opportunities that you provide.  Our Business Day Manufacturer's Showcase is one of our most visible efforts. 
In 2020, we are expanding our focus to include jobs and the innovation factors of manufacturing.  In addition to the traditional digital showcase, this year you have the opportunity to submit a table centerpiece-size product that would be featured under the heading of “Did you know that we make this in South Dakota?” 

Our goal for this format is to allow more manufacturing members to participate and be recognized during Business Day, which also serves as our annual membership meeting.  Several hundred community leaders attend Business Day, including a majority of state legislators, cabinet members, constitutional officers.  This is an excellent venue to showcase your company, the products manufactured and employment opportunities.

The Manufacturer's Digital Showcase and Product Feature will be part of Business Day at the Legislature, February 20, 2020 at the Pierre Ramkota.

For a $50 fee, member manufacturers have an opportunity to participate by submitting up to six PowerPoint slides that will recognize your business and the products produced.  The slides should include a photo and brief description.  (Messaging is most effective when kept to one or two short lines.)  If you are unable to develop PowerPoint slides, submit photos and brief descriptions and we will prepare the slides.   

Your information will be incorporated into a visual program that will run throughout the afternoon and during the Economic Developer’s Reception.  After Business Day, it will be posted to our website.  (The 2019 program appears at www.sdchamber.biz, under NEWS.)

Thursday, February 20, 2020 - Business Day at the Legislature
