INDIANAPOLIS - An inaugural event focusing on manufacturing and products made in the United States will take place this fall in Indianapolis. More than 10,000 people are expected to attend MADE IN AMERICA 2019, a four-day expo at the Indiana Convention Center that aims to raise awareness "for the economic, environmental and community impact of American manufacturing."

The event will run October 3-6 in downtown Indy. More than 800 exhibitors will be on hand conference, taking up more than 450,000 square feet of the Indiana Convention Center to showcase American-made machines and products by 800 manufacturers throughout the country.

"American-made machines and products are the backbone of America's strength," said Don Buckner, chief executive officer of the event. "We take great pride in our ability to deliver above and beyond with the goods we produce. While everyone has a part of their own industry's circle, we seldom find the opportunity to celebrate that unique craftsmanship in one place together."

The event will feature the Made in America Kickoff Show, which organizers say will include live performances by top-selling American billboard artists and keynote speakers, though specific names were not provided. It will end with the first-annual "Made in America Awards" honoring "the American manufacturing tradition and to recognize the accomplishments of American production heroes."
