This year’s program, which will discuss the state’s economic outlook, innovation, workforce and other topics, will be announced soon.
“We are excited to bring this year’s Business & Industry Luncheon to Milwaukee during Manufacturing Month in October. Milwaukee has been a hub of the state’s manufacturing sector for more than a century, and it is with enthusiasm that we will honor the industry’s historic past and promising future,” said Wade Goodsell, WMC Foundation Executive Director. “Our program will focus on the State of Wisconsin’s business climate, the direction of our state, national and global economy, and we will crown the Coolest Thing Made in Wisconsin champion.”
