On June 2nd & 3rd, we hosted Montreal's first ever Urban Manufacturing Summit at Complexe Dompark in the South West Borough. The event brought together over 100 leading decision makers, practitioners, business leaders, and thinkers concerned with growing and supporting urban manufacturing in Montreal and other North American cities, in order to capitalize on this sector toward building a more robust, equitable, and sustainable economic future. Delegates represented a wide range of disciplines, perspectives, and business interests, drawn from across Montreal, Quebec, and North America – 12 cities in all. See the speaker list here. The event included presentations and panel discussions, site visits to local manufacturing workshops, a guided tour of an industrial zone, and plenty of networking.
