CAMPS 2022 Annual Conference: What we are looking forward to!

When opportunities to leap forward present themselves, our team says, “I’m in!” The Annual CAMPS Conference is one such opportunity and the team from Out of the Box Manufacturing will be there.

An event that includes keynotes, breakout sessions, a broad range of relevant/timely topics, and opportunities to connect one-to-one with other manufacturing companies is hard to pass up.

We hope to see people from companies such as Access Laser, AR Modular, Fresh Consulting, Puget Systems, Slayer Espresso. We know and appreciate the impact they make as they strive to create excellence. With a reception from 4:30 pm to 6:00 pm, we will be sketching and talking about new possiblities.

Winning Strategies to Implement Disruptive Technologies in Manufacturing Successfully

Globalization is driving an intensely competitive environment in manufacturing. Kaizen is necessary but no longer sufficient.  The use of emerging or disruptive technologies is almost mandatory to sustain competitiveness. 

The challenge is to identify and deploy the right emerging and disruptive technologies.  This presentation will give insights into winning strategies for successful technology transfer from the R&D space into the manufacturing environment.


Amazon Web Services (AWS) needs no introduction. Having Douglas Bellin available will help us to unravel puzzles and possibilities.


Cloud Innovation

Hear how Amazon Web Services (AWS) can use the power of the Cloud to change the fundamentals of Manufacturing Operations. 

Hear about their customer stories and anecdotes showing how Cloud is relevant to your business and the benefits others are seeing by harnessing this incredible capability.


We appreciate a diverse group who will cover the topics. They are business leaders overcoming the challenges we face.






Out of the Box Manufacturing is a CAMPS member but this event is not limited to “members only.” Typically, a full day event at such an event would be twice the price. We are grateful that CAMPS has recruited sponsors so more can attend.


There is only one day until the event! If you are registered (or plan to register), please reach out! We want to connect and get your thoughts and take-aways from the conference!
