Nearly 300 executives from manufacturing organizations in the U.S. and abroad gathered at the Breakers Hotel in Palm Beach, FL, in early June to attend the 10th annual Manufacturing Leadership Summit and Awards conference, whose theme was The Next Industrial Revolution: What Will Your Company Look Like in 2030?

Over the two days of the conference, Summit attendees experienced more than 50 individual presentations, panel discussions, think tanks, and technology briefings involving companies and organizations from across the spectrum of the industry.

At the ML Awards celebration, more than 100 companies as well as manufacturing leaders were honored with awards, including a Lifetime Achievement Award presented posthumously to Richard E. Dauch of American Axle & Manufacturing.
