This year, Invest Barrie and Simcoe County have partnered to bring together the energy of the Manufacturing Innovation Summit with the engaging conversation from the Manufacturing Forum into one regional event.

MIS 2022 is for all manufacturers at any stage and of any size.

This event is a must-attend, half-day conference that will bring together industry leaders, executives, investors, and entrepreneurs from the Ontario manufacturing sector to learn firsthand what the future of manufacturing looks like within our region and beyond.

We are excited to announce that Andrew Au, global thought leader on digital transformation and culture change, will be joining us as the 2022 MIS keynote speaker.

It’s without question that the past few years have been challenging for all sectors and the importance of innovating has never been more relevant. Process improvements, improved supply chain management, and investments in information technology and automation have all been critical to the manufacturing sector.

MIS 2022 will include a breakfast, keynote address, an industry panel discussion, and breakout sessions on talent strategies, cyber-security and leveraging immersive technologies. These breakouts will be facilitated by leaders in the digital transformation and manufacturing industries delivering key insights for manufacturing businesses at all stages of their journey. The event will conclude with a networking lunch.

On Wednesday, October 19, join us to learn more about how local manufacturers are engaging in new ideas and technological advancements that will benefit the future of our community.
