Back in late May, Advance Media New York had the pleasure of speaking to a group at the Buffalo Niagara Partnership with some specific insights regarding marketing for manufacturers. Speakers were Mike Belin, Steve Hodgens and George Kuhn.
The Buffalo Niagara Partnership recently joined together with the Hamilton Chamber of Commerce in opposing the Trump administration’s recently imposed steel and aluminum tariffs. The move risks a historic trading relationship between the United States and Canada and could have detrimental consequences for economies on both sides of the border.
With the arrival of spring comes the arrival of event season here at the Partnership.
One of our biggest and most anticipated events of the year, HobNob, is just around the corner and we have been hard at work to make this year’s event different from previous years.
Manufacturing Days represents the opportunity for regional manufacturers to speak to state politicians about the policies that are of most importance to them.
In two weeks, on March 23 and 24, the Manufacturers Association of Central New York will be hosting its eighth annual Manufacturing Days in Albany.
The Buffalo Niagara region sits on the shores of two of the Great Lakes. Our geographic location is largely responsible for our history as a center of wealth and commerce, as well as our more recent history of population loss and economic decline.
