Design-2-Part Shows Announce 2017 Schedule

Design-2-Part (D2P) Shows, America’s largest design and contract manufacturing tradeshows, has announced their 2017 show schedule. The eleven event slate includes six spring shows and five fall shows.

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.

The 2017 show schedule is highlighted by D2P’s long awaited return to three key manufacturing hubs. The new additions will be in Charlotte, NC; Indianapolis, IN; and San Diego, CA.

The schedule is anchored by five annual shows. D2P will hold these events in Grapevine (Dallas), TX; Atlanta, GA; Schaumburg (Chicago), IL; Santa Clara, CA; and Marlborough (Boston), MA. The D2P schedule is rounded out with three shows that revolve every two to three years.

“The scheduling stars really aligned for us,” said Jerry Schmidt, President of Design-2-Part Shows. “We are excited about being able to offer contract manufacturing solutions in the growing markets of Charlotte, Indianapolis, and San Diego. Charlotte was one of our best cities for years before it got saturated with several other manufacturing events. Recent defections have given us the opportunity to return as the only game in town. San Diego is a perfect off-year complement to our Los Angeles area shows and Indianapolis is a fast growing market that has been receiving a lot of interest from our customers.”

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.
