Upcoming Virtual Events in the Machining World

COVID-19 has made networking and continued education a challenge, to say the least. Around the country—and even the world—we aren’t able to attend prominent events within our industries. Conventions, trade shows and even classes have fallen victim to the pandemic.

Luckily, many have found ways to adapt their events to these unusual times. Classes are becoming webinars, and trade shows and conventions are taking place virtually. That’s why we want to share some prominent upcoming events within the machining industry that you can now enjoy from the comfort of your own (safe) home.

This webinar will take place on Wednesday, July 15, 2020 from 2 p.m. to 3 p.m. EDT. You can sign up for it here
