Mentorship Program

Mentorship and on-the-job learning are the building blocks for your long-term success within the advanced manufacturing industry. While both lay the groundwork for your initial and continued development in the industry, if you don’t have direct access to those professional development programs, it can be difficult to know where to go for support. That’s where we come in. Introducing our new IME East Mentorship Program. Spanning all three days of the expo, industry veterans will be paired with professionals just starting their careers. To join, just opt-in during your registration.

If you have any questions regarding the program, please contact Event Manager, Annie Helfgott.
