Advanced manufacturing is a complicated process. What better way to understand the newest innovations than experiencing them firsthand?

The Society of Manufacturing Engineers' The Big M event at Detroit's Cobo Center on June 9-12 will showcase the latest in manufacturing trends to educate industry leaders and educators.

The exhibit space at The Big M event will host live manufacturing operations to showcase advanced technologies and processes, such as cybersecurity, advanced materials, 3-D printing and modeling.

The showcase is designed to educate attendees on the changing manufacturing landscape.

The conference sessions will feature speakers from General Electric Co., Ford Motor Co., Steelcase Inc., Siemens AG, Dow Chemical Co. and more.

Attendees can also tour Southeast Michigan plants, such as General Motors Co.'s Chevy Volt plant, the Comau SpA robotics research and development center, and others.
