The 2017 BBQ Bash / Manufacturers Celebration is held in honor of our manufacturers who choose Greenville as the place to locate and grow their business. Please join us as we honor our manufacturing community at Greenville Tech's Center for Manufacturing Innovation (CMI)!

Enjoy delicious BBQ, live entertainment, and great networking in a fun environment. All attendees will have the opportunity to tour the new CMI facility, experience advanced manufacturing as it exists today and see how we are teaching and preparing talent for current and future advanced manufacturing jobs. Plus, high school robotic teams, along with Greenville Tech, will have their latest robot projects on site. You don't want to miss this event!

In addition to our normal agenda of BBQ, beer, music and networking, we are partnering with CMI and Greenville County Schools this year to bring a group of parents of high school seniors to the event to expose them to the opportunities found in manufacturing and showcase what the industry really looks like. We will have a mini-career fair in the CMI building for the parents at the BBQ Bash to be followed by a full day of tours of CMI and local manufacturers on Friday in partnership with the National Association of Manufacturers MFG Day.


Manufacturers receive up to three complimentary admissions.
