***contact us for more information about the Quebec delegation***


• Given the uncertainties this year, the Vermont Chamber has reinvented and reimagined a 100% virtual edition of our Annual Manufacturing Supply Chain Summit with a theme of “The Future of Adaptive Sourcing.”
• Paradigm shifts brought about by the pandemic have impacted global supply chains, moving companies to modify their sourcing strategies and lower costs while enhancing quality and being nimble at the same time.
• Looking ahead, what will be the market reality, challenges, and contracting opportunities for suppliers in advanced manufacturing for aerospace, aviation, defense, government, shipbuilding, and space?
• To find out, attend the B2B program and hear from industry leaders, subject matter experts, and take the uncertainty out of networking with pre-schedule B2B meetings with buyers, suppliers, and partners for contacts and new business opportunities on the B2B/2GO platform.
Key Focus Areas: Contacts, Content and Workforce Development
• B2B Supply Chain Matchmaking on the new B2B/2GO platform:
o Connecting buyers, suppliers and partners for contacts, new business opportunities and contracts to reconnect and rebuild supply chains.
• Participating OEMs and Prime Contractors
• Find Your Future Workforce with Vermont Technical College and University of Vermont College of Engineering and Mathematical Sciences (CEMS)
o Matching students and soon-to-be-graduates in advanced manufacturing (workforce development)
• New and Emerging Trends
o Rich content (morning keynote, seminars, and special activities)
