Manufacturing is essential to our economy, not just for the jobs and revenue it creates, but also as a main source of innovation and global competitiveness. The Bay Area benefits from a strong manufacturing foundation. Our expansive Waterfront, from Antioch to Hercules, continues to play a key role in sustaining manufacturing and keeping the Bay Area economy vibrant.

Learn more about how the Northern Waterfront Economic Development Initiative aims to bring private and public stakeholders together to better utilize one of the county’s greatest economic assets. Learn about exciting new projects and how this important initiative has the potential to add thousands of jobs, including advanced manufacturing jobs, and provide significant economic and environmental benefits to the local communities along the waterfront for decades to come. 

Join us for an exciting conversation and hear from four perspectives on the value and role of manufacturing in Martinez, the region and state of California. Speakers include representatives from the Northern Waterfront Initiative, Contra Costa County Workforce Development Board and Shell Martinez Refinery. We are also proud to announce our keynote speaker, Kish Rajan, Director of the Governor’s Office for Business and Economic Development (GO-BIZ).
