Manufacturers' Appreciation Week

Celebrate Manufacturers' Appreciation Week May 8-12

Manufacturers' Appreciation Week is a celebration of modern manufacturing meant to inspire the next generation of manufacturers. From May 8-12, 2017, the Dubuque Area Chamber of Commerce encourages the community to help us celebrate and appreciate local manufacturers. It is important to recognize our manufacturers, for the products they produce, the jobs they create, the revenue they generate, and their employees who help to generate and boost our local economy.

You are able to tour select facilities on Tuesday, May 9th and Thursday, May 11th. These tours make this week a very popular one with our members. You may have viewed their products, now get a behind the scenes tour of how it all comes together. Sign-up to get a glimpse at these products, and the impact these manufactures’ investment has on our community. The cost to participate is $30 for one day or $50 for both days.
