Join us for a MANA Workshop at The ASSEMBLY Show

October 25-27, 2022 ∙ Rosemont, Ilinois


The ASSEMBLY Show is partnering with MANA (Manufacturers’ Agents National Association) to offer a pre-event workshop on “Thriving With Manufacturers’ Reps” on Tuesday, October 25 from 11 a.m.-12:30 p.m. MANA CEO Charles Cohon will share details about low-cost and no-cost practices and programs that will earn more of a rep’s mind share so they will bring more orders.

Cohon will then moderate a panel of reps and manufacturers who will answer questions about how they thrive in long-term, mutually profitable rep-manufacturer relationships. Panelists who will discuss best practices, successes and challenges include Marty Grimes, president and owner, Assembly Solutions, Inc.; Jason Barton, director of business development, Dukane; Bill Eppich, vice president, WEISS North America; Tony Marquette, president, Instrumentation Resources, Inc.; Glenn Nausley, president, Promess; David Scaggs, director of sales, Cincinnati Test Systems; and Kurt Sieber, president, EDGE Manufacturing Technologies.


“Being part of The ASSEMBLY Show educational program is an exciting first for the Manufacturers’ Agents National Association. The ASSEMBLY Show is more than just the ‘go-to’ event for the assembly technology equipment and product industry; it’s also a target-rich environment for manufacturers

seeking reps and reps seeking manufacturers. And this year MANA will be on-site to help make that kind of matchmaking flourish at The ASSEMBLY Show,” said Charles Cohon, MANA’s CEO and president.
