New York City, March 6, 2014 – New York International, together with leading partners, will host 15 US and international new manufacturing companies from May 12 – 14 to showcase the unique strength of New York City in the emerging sector of urban manufacturing. Building on the successful World to NYC program, the new program will not only provide knowledge and insight opportunities for the companies coming to New York City, but will focus on collaboration with established and new ventures in the city. In addition, the collaboration in the emerging sector will lead recommendations for the city on how to leverage the opportunities for the emerging sector driven by the combination of software and hardware.
“We have the unique opportunity
to showcase New York City as the number one hub for urban manufacturing,” said Stefanie Lemcke, Founder and Editor in Chief New York International. New technologies like 3D printing, connected devices or laser printing enable a renaissance of manufacturing in the United States. The cross-disciplinary approach of technology, engineering, marketing and finance combined with New York’s dynamic urban environment uniquely positions the city to benefit from this development. New York City is already home to some of the leading companies in the sector.
W2NYC invites NYC-based companies, academic institutions, investors and media to become a program partner and meet and collaborate with some of the best companies worldwide in this disruptive sector.
