SME Manufacturing Expo

The 4th Annual SME Manufacturing Expo, formerly known as the North State Manufacturing Expo, will be held on November 16, 2017 at the California State University, Chico Bell Memorial Union (BMU). This is the second of many years to come that the event will be happily hosted by the Chico State student organization, Society of Manufacturing Engineers (SME).

The Manufacturing Expo website will be utilized again this year to aid us in the registration of not only Manufacturer and Supplier Exhibitors, but also the registration of students and educators for small class breakout session and student tours of the Chico State engineering labs. 

Please register yourself, or your entire class to participate in the November 16, 2017 exhibition by visiting the Expo website at:

Don't wait to reserve your spot! We are expecting at least 3,000 students to attend this year! To ensure a spot in either the student tours, or the small class breakout sessions, please register as soon as possible!
