NOCOM Trade Show Announces Sponsors for 2020
Colorado companies continue to invest and support the growth of manufacturing
LOVELAND, Colo., December 19, 2019 — Northern Colorado Manufacturing Partnership (NoCo) is pleased to announce the major sponsors for NOCOM 2020: City of Loveland, FirstBank, Aerotek, Flood and Peterson, and Plante Moran. The event will be held on Thursday, April 9, 2020 at The Ranch Events Complex in Loveland.
“Over FirstBank’s three years involved with NOCOM we’ve marveled at its tremendous growth, keeping pace with the dynamic nature of the manufacturing industry,” said Nicole Staudinger, FirstBank Regional President. “NOCOM provides us the unique opportunity to interact with manufacturers and affiliated businesses, allowing us to be educated and innovative. More importantly, we applaud NOCOM’s efforts to inspire and educate the next crop of our local workforce.”
NOCOM is Colorado’s largest manufacturing tradeshow, organized by local business leaders. The event showcases Northern Colorado’s expanding manufacturing sector as well as connects suppliers, manufacturers, capital, and services. Last year, despite the bomb cyclone snowstorm, over 900 people attended the show and networking events, which featured 114 exhibitors and Colorado OEDIT Executive Director, Betsy Markey.
“NoCo continues to demonstrate support of manufacturing across a range of industries,” said Heidi Hostetter, NOCOM 2020 trade show chair. “Colorado is one of the fastest growing states in the nation; Northern Colorado, specifically Larimer and Weld counties, is growing twice as fast as the state. Based on industry-feedback, we are expanding to include the construction industry as part of the 2020 show.”
“We are proud to continue to be the host city for NOCOM,” said Kelly Jones, Economic Development Director for the City of Loveland. “This industry-led event that showcases Northern Colorado’s innovative manufacturers is a model for other sectors looking to grow their business opportunities. We were with the team from the first show and applaud NOCO for producing significant growth in a short time.”
“Aerotek is pleased to sponsor NOCOM 2020 for the fourth year,” said Matt Collins, Loveland-based Skilled Trades Account Manager. “We are committed to being part of the broader manufacturing community, and NOCOM provides our firm the exposure and relationships to support Northern Colorado’s economic growth.”
