Design-2-Part Shows Announce 2020 Schedule

Design-2-Part (D2P) Shows, America’s largest design and contract manufacturing tradeshows, have announced their 2020 show schedule. The eleven-event slate includes six spring shows and five fall shows.

The 2020 schedule is highlighted by D2P’s second straight Connecticut show. After an extremely popular inaugural event with both attendees and exhibitors in 2019, the show will return to the Mohegan Sun Exposition Center in Uncasville this coming Spring. D2P will also return to Nashville, Tennessee and Greenville, South Carolina after a four and five-year absence.

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; Marlborough (Boston), MA; and Long Beach, CA. The Long Beach show rotates between Long Beach and Pasadena giving Southern California manufacturers two convenient, every-other-year options. The schedule is rounded out with five events that alternate every few 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 where 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.
