2017 Tour of Manufacturing: Survey of Tour Hosts and Participants

In fall 2017, the 360 Center of Excellence and its partners coordinated over 147 manufacturing businesses across Minnesota to provide tours of their facilities for students and educators, job seekers, other manufacturers, and the general public. The event, called the Dream It. Do It. Minnesota Statewide Tour of Manufacturing, took place throughout the month of October. To help understand the implementation and impact of the tours, Wilder Research developed a paper survey that was administered to Tour participants, as well as a web-based survey for the manufacturing businesses that hosted the tours. This report highlights findings from both surveys.
