On August 5, the Minnesota Manufacturing Executive networking group will hold its quarterly Gears & Gadgets event. Marni Hockenberg, principal at the Minnetonka-based manufacturing recruitment firm Hockenberg Search, created the group to provide an opportunity for manufacturing business owners and executives to network with other industry professionals. The Gears & Gadgets event is now in its third year. This month’s event will feature a talk by Ed Dieter, deputy director of the Minnesota Trade Office, about finding and motivating a foreign trade partner. It will conclude with a networking happy hour. Taking place in Roseville, the event is reserved for manufacturing professionals and is by invitation only. Some manufacturing insiders who rarely attend events often do show up for Gears & Gadgets. For more information, contact Hockenberg at
