Design-2-Part Shows Announce 2013 Schedule

Dec 28, 2012

Design-2-Part (D2P) Shows, America’s largest design and contract manufacturing tradeshows, are pleased to announce their 2013 show schedule. The eleven show slate includes six annual events, two biennial and two triennial shows, and a highly anticipated inaugural event in Minneapolis.

The schedule is highlighted by Design-2-Part Shows’ first ever appearance in Minneapolis, MN with the Upper Midwest Design-2-Part Show, on June 5 & 6, 2013 at the Minneapolis Convention Center.

The schedule is anchored by six annual shows. D2P will hold these events in Grapevine (Dallas), TX, Atlanta, GA, Schaumburg, IL, Santa Clara, CA, Pasadena, CA, and Marlborough (Boston), MA. The Southern California Design-2-Part Show actually rotates between Pasadena and Long Beach giving Greater Los Angeles area manufacturers two convenient, every-other-year options.

The D2P schedule is rounded out with four events that revolve every two or three years. These shows will be held in Monroeville (Pittsburgh), PA, Greenville, SC, Phoenixville (Philadelphia), PA and Covington, KY.

Design-2-Part Shows provide design engineers, manufacturing engineers and managers, and purchasers an excellent opportunity to meet 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 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.
