Manufacturing Success: If You Haven't Been to Product Camp, You're Missing Out


Once you come to the realization that the answers are out there, you are left with the challenge of discovering the right questions to ask. I recently met up with Marc Bowers to discuss how his non-profit manufacturers’ group St. Louis Makes and an event they co-promote, Product Camp St. Louis help makers and inventors, manufacturers, and entrepreneurs discover those next steps and questions that open doors to new opportunities. No matter your current resources or where you stand in the development of your idea, St. Louis Makes helps the region’s 6,500 manufacturing operations to MAKE business happen.

Hosted in over 50 cities around the world (North America, Europe, Australia, even India), Product Camp has continued to grow and make an impact on business communities the world over. In 2014 Product Camp St. Louis had one of the largest registrations of all Product Camps held globally. The 2015 Product Camp St. Louis is projected to have 600 professionals, ranging from Fortune 500 leaders to local start-up founders, in attendance


So why would you register for Product Camp St. Louis? Strategies for success start with insights, and unfortunately we often don’t know what we don’t know. To remedy this, we have to immerse ourselves in environments that force us to learn, grow, and continuously expand our scope of the industry we work in. Opportunities like Product Camp St. Louis are priceless because they allow us to network and gain the valuable insights we need to explore and seize new opportunities that add value to our current offerings.

If you’re interested in attending Product Camp St. Louis, remember the event is FREE, but registration is required. (click here to register)
