BAY AREA URBAN
The 2017 Bay Area Urban Manufacturing Summit is the culmination of the year’s work highlighting the strength, diversity, and versatility of manufacturing in the Bay Area. Last year’s inaugural Summit drew more than 450 regional leaders and featured the Mayors and Vice-Mayors of San Francisco, San Jose, Oakland, and Fremont as well as leading Bay Area manufacturing companies.
This year, the Summit will take place over a gourmet lunch at a historic West Oakland manufacturing facility in early November.
The Bay Area Urban Manufacturing Summit provides a unique opportunity for you to partner in this growing regional collaboration to advance the number of middle-income jobs and create a more equitable and diverse regional economy.
Secure your table today and support manufacturing throughout the Bay Area. Contact Linda Becker for details at email@example.com or 415-408-5605.

ABOUT THE INITIATIVE
Launched at the 2016 Bay Area Urban Manufacturing Summit, the Bay Area Urban Manufacturing Initiative (BAUM) is a three-year project to facilitate the creation of a well-defined and interconnected regional manufacturing ecosystem.
The more than 25 Bay Area partner cities include: Alameda, Antioch, Berkeley, Concord, Emeryville, Fairfield, Fremont, Hayward, Livermore, Milpitas, Morgan Hill, Newark, Oakland, Oakley, Petaluma, Pittsburg, Pleasanton, San Francisco, San Jose, San Leandro, San Rafael, Santa Rosa, Union City, Vacaville, and Vallejo.
The Initiative began with an effort to collect direct data from manufacturers in the four largest cities in the Bay Area: San Francisco, San Jose, Oakland and Fremont. The resultant inaugural Bay Area State of Urban Manufacturing report was the first coordinated regional effort to directly survey urban manufacturers on the topics of workforce, business practices, supply chain connections, real estate challenges, and most importantly, to uncover the opportunities for Bay Area cities to collaborate.
