||Prospect, CT — Design-2-Part (D2P) Shows, America's largest design and contract manufacturing tradeshows, have released their 2014 show schedule. The 11-show slate includes six annual events, four biennial shows, and an inaugural event in Chantilly, VA.
The schedule is highlighted by Design-2-Part Shows' first ever appearance in Chantilly, VA with the Mid-Atlantic Design-2-Part Show, on June 11-12, 2014 at the Dulles Expo Center. With the Maryland and the D.C. Metro area now home to 4,729 manufacturers and 182,493 manufacturing jobs, Northern Virginia's "Dulles Technology Corridor" is an ideal location for D2P's newest show.
The schedule is anchored by six annual shows. D2P will hold these events in Grapevine (Dallas), TX, Atlanta, GA, Schaumburg, IL, Santa Clara, CA, Long Beach, CA, and Marlborough (Boston), MA. The Southern California Show rotates between Long Beach and Pasadena giving Greater Los Angeles area manufacturers two convenient, every-other-year options. And New England attendees will enjoy a date move one month earlier to the beginning of October.
The D2P schedule is rounded out with four events that revolve every two years. These shows will be held in Secaucus, NJ, Akron, OH, Portland, OR, and Raleigh, NC.
Design-2-Part Shows provide design engineers, manufacturing engineers and managers, and purchasers an excellent opportunity to meet face-to-face with local and national job shops and contract manufacturers 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 present 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.
