Nov 8, 2017

November 7, 2017 – Design-2-Part (D2P) Shows, America’s largest design and contract manufacturing tradeshows, is pleased to announce their 2018 show schedule. The eleven event slate includes six spring shows and five fall shows.

The schedule is anchored by six annual shows. D2P will hold these events in Grapevine (Dallas), TX; Atlanta, GA; Schaumburg (Chicago), IL; Santa Clara, CA; Long Beach, CA; and Marlborough (Boston), MA. The Long Beach show will rotate between Long Beach and San Diego giving Southern California manufacturers two convenient, every-other-year options. The D2P schedule is rounded out with five events that alternate every two to three years.

Design-2-Part Shows provide design engineers, manufacturing engineers, managers, and purchasers an excellent opportunity to meet local and national job shops and contract manufacturers face-to-face to source custom parts, components, services, and design. Exhibiting companies will be showcasing their design-through-manufacturing services featuring more than 300 product categories for the metal, plastics, rubber and electronics industries. The shows are working shows and visitors are encouraged to bring sample parts and drawings.

D2P Shows exclusively feature exhibiting job shops and contract manufacturers with manufacturing operations in the United States. Companies that do not have facilities in the U.S. are not permitted to exhibit.
