Due to concerns around COVID-19, Siemens have decided to cancel Manufacturing in America 2020, which were slated to occur on March 25 and 26. The company cites uncertainty, risk and its responsibility for the health of its domestic and international partners, vendors, attendees and employees as the reason for the cancellation.

Hotel reservations made through Siemens on its Manufacturing in America website will be automatically cancelled. However, for attendees that made reservations separately, they will be responsible for their own cancellation.

The annual Manufacturing in America brings together more than 3,500 manufacturing executives, engineers and enthusiasts inside Ford Field in downtown Detroit. The summit is free to attend, but registration is required to take part in over 100 technical seminars and over 50 exhibits focused on emerging automation, digitalization, controls, and drive technologies.
