Supplier Readiness Sessions

Supplier Readiness Sessions

A total of 9 Supplier Readiness Sessions were held in the past few weeks with over 700 attendees. The sessions were very well received as attendees expressed their appreciation for the specific information shared about the Foxconn supply chain as well as the broader Industry 4.0+ trends facing manufacturers.

More events will take place in the future that will leverage digital communication channels to update businesses on statewide resources to help improve productivity and increase global competitiveness. We encourage everyone who attended as well as any companies who may have not attended the Supplier sessions to register on wisupplychainmarketplace.com.
