LOVELAND, Colo., March 3, 2020  — Northern Colorado Manufacturing Partnership (NoCo) is pleased to announce the Speaker Hall Sponsors for NOCOM 2020: AuerCPA CO. and Colorado Office of Economic Development and International Trade (OEDIT). The event will be held on Thursday, April 9, 2020 at The Ranch Events Complex in Loveland.


“This is the second year that we have co-sponsored the Speaker Hall at NOCOM. It’s our way of supporting the manufacturing community in Northern Colorado,” said Craig Auer, President, AuerCPA CO. “Our organization is passionate about education and continued learning for our staff and clients. I feel like NOCOM offers its manufacturing attendees quality educational opportunities through the topics presented at the show and subject matter experts engaged in the Speaker Hall.”


Colorado OEDIT will share information about financing opportunities for manufacturers through the Employee Ownership Program led by John Kovacs.


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.


This year’s Speaker Hall lineup will focus on cybersecurity, automated placement machine design, doing business internationally, and strategic planning and execution. Experts from Plante Moran, Snaptron Inc., World Trade Center Denver, and Global Chamber NoCo will lead the interactive panel discussions. The detailed schedule is attached.


“NoCo continues to demonstrate support of manufacturers’ needs,” said Christina Haxton, Founder and CEO of The Center for Sustainable Strategies, who organized this year’s program. “The Speaker Hall program is based on direct survey feedback from our NOCOM attendees and NoCo members. We are fortunate to have access to highly qualified subject matter experts through our network and sponsors.”
