The Manufacturing Leadership (ML) Awards honor companies, individual leaders and technology providers that are shaping the future of global manufacturing.
Recipients of the ML Awards will receive global recognition as manufacturing industry leaders, and will be honored at the ML Awards Gala on June 4th, the final day of the Manufacturing Leadership Summit. Past ML Awards company honorees include Coca-Cola, Eaton Corporation, General Motors Co., IBM, and Raytheon.
The Manufacturing Leadership Council is the world's foremost member-driven, global business leadership network comprised of senior level executives in the manufacturing sector. The Council's mission is to support its members across all segments of manufacturing and drive them to define and shape a better future for themselves, their organizations and the industry at large.
Day One of the Manufacturing Leadership Summit will provide dedicated time for Manufacturing Leadership Council members to gather, network and collaborate on the all-important agenda of critical issues for the coming year of ML programs. Leaders considering membership in the Council may also participate in the ML Council Day by invitation.
