October 31, 2023 – Alexandria, VA – The American Gear Manufacturers Association (AGMA) had three manufacturing podcasts that were broadcast live and recorded from the 2023 Motion + Power Technology Expo (MPT Expo) in Detroit, Michigan. More than 50 attendees and exhibitors were interviewed over the three-day show that hosted a total of 2,268 attendees and 163 exhibitors. The podcasts included:
- Manufacturing Talks with Jim Vinoski
- Manufacturing Talk Radio with Lewis Weiss
- SEW-EURO DRIVE – Driving the World with Culley Holland
“One of the reasons that people exhibit and attend MPT Expo is to see the latest power transmission solutions across multiple sectors all in one place,” said Rebecca Brinkley, Director, Membership and Communications, AGMA. “We thought it was important to bring nationally recognized podcasts to our show floor to allow our industry leaders to reach a global audience and talk about all parts of the supply chain and manufacturing.”
Inviting MPT Expo attendees to discuss their businesses and challenges they face on-air gave attendees a platform and a wide audience that many manufacturers don’t always have easy access to.
“Having a trade show that provides quality leads and networking is important,” added Brinkley. “However, a constant challenge for manufacturing is marketing, and having the on-the-floor interviews gave people a great opportunity to discuss workforce challenges, share trends in emerging markets, establish expertise, and talk about their brand. Some people will be able to use these interviews to help advertise for their companies and hopefully to continue their lead generation.”
