Meet like-minded professionals in the Midwest at Putman Media's first after-hours networking event.

Putman Media is pleased to introduce the Digital Manufacturing User Group, a community of industrial professionals interested in IIoT, smart devices, and how technology is changing the world of maintenance and manufacturing. The group, hosted through social site Meetup, allows members to talk with members of the Plant Services team, interact with professionals in their area, and attend a new series of after-work events.

These casual networking get-togethers offer manufacturing and industry professionals the chance to enjoy conversation and a cold beverage with their peers. The first event will take place March 7 from 6–8 p.m. at Granite City in Schaumburg, IL, and will be hosted by Plant Services and Smart Industry editors. If you'd like to attend, just join the Digital Manufacturing User Group on Meetup and RSVP for the event.
