Welcome to the WVMEGS
The West Virginia Manufacturers Association is thrilled to host the Manufacturing Energy Growth (MEG) Summit, formerly the Marcellus and Manufacturing Development Conference. This regional, annual event brings together manufacturing and energy leaders, state and local officials, economic development professionals, and friends of industry and energy from West Virginia, Ohio, and Pennsylvania.
Summit attendees will explore the broader intersections of manufacturing and energy from power generation to downstream manufacturing development through feedstocks by created oil & natural gas and rare earth extraction.
Expert presenters will provide updates and new information on a variety of issues relating to manufacturing and energy. The MEG Summit is a time to work together to identify challenges and opportunities in these industries, and to formulate crucial regional strategies to expand manufacturing and energy development in Appalachia.
