    The Small Manufacturing Alliance (SMALL) was launched during Version Festival 12. SMALL is a new organization that promotes companies and individuals that make locally manufactured products and provide services to small businesses and creators. To showcase these products we opened The SMALL Showroom from May 4th  to May 26, 2012 at the Co-Prosperity Sphere. We think of the Showroom as a People’s Macy’s.


    If you are interested in being a big part of SMALL please email ed(at)smallma.org. We are currently focused on identifying manufacturers and producers to develop a directory of Made in Chicago products. And we will be releasing a new SMALL
    A printed SMALL directory  is available upon request.
