DANVILLE, Va. (WSET) -- The message at a nationally recognized conference in Danville was clear: "There are plenty of opportunities available."
The Haas Technical Education Center's Americas CNC Educators Conference brings together professionals in the manufacturing industry to promote industry-education initiatives.
Each year the week-long conference is held in a different city, and this was Danville's first time hosting the event.
They say this is a huge opportunity for the city.
"The Danville community was lucky enough to be chosen for the event this year and is bringing first class manufacturers from around the country and beyond to meet," Mark Gignac, Executive Director of IALR, said.
The conference will run until Friday and will include breakout sessions, tours and networking opportunities.
