2020 PM Management Summit

(Open to MPIF Members Only)

Connect with powder metallurgy industry leaders during the MPIF 2021 Management Summit October 23–25, 2021 at the Union Station Hotel in Nashville, Tennessee. Now more than ever it is important that we come together as an industry to discuss the current state and plan how we are going to move forward to build a stronger, more unified PM industry – for our conventional press & sinter, metal injection molding, and metal AM member companies.

A program is being developed to include high-caliber speakers presenting on timely topics that will have an immediate impact on the industry, as well as long-term strategies.

During this Summit, we will also be holding the MPIF 77th Annual Business Meeting, which will provide you with insights of the Federation’s activities as well as an update from each of our six associations on the Pulse Survey results and what we have to look forward to in 2022.

Delegates Can Expect:


  • a format to maximize your networking and the value of your participation;
  • impressive speakers on timely business topics;
  • MPIF and association business meetings where you will drive the future of your association and adopt 2022 budgets.

This is your opportunity to connect face-to-face with customers and/or suppliers—all C-Level or Senior Management—to discuss industry challenges and discover opportunities to grow your company and its place in the PM industry.

Spouse/guest attendance is encouraged.


Full Registration Fee Includes:


  • Saturday Welcome Receptions
  • Monday night reception and dinner
  • Breakfast buffet Monday
  • Lunch on Monday (business meeting registrants only)
