Design-2-Part Magazine

Design-2-Part magazine (D2P) is a quarterly publication read by engineers and buyers at North American OEMs and product manufacturing companies.

D2P’s editorial content focuses on discrete parts manufacturers (primarily metals, plastics, ceramics, and rubber components), contract manufacturers, and suppliers who are effectively using advanced and cost-effective manufacturing processes to enable the creation of high-quality products.

We cover software and IT relevant to design and manufacturing; advanced materials ranging from carbon fiber reinforced composites to nano-engineered coatings; and electronic components.

Thank you for your interest in attending the Design-2-Part Show! Our shows are geared towards matching OEM engineers and purchasing professionals with contract manufacturers. Because this is an active business engagement, we ask that students and instructors follow some attendance guidelines.

1. Please attend the show after 11:00 am so the floor is less congested, and exhibitors have an opportunity to conduct business.
2. Please email our registration manager ( letting them know the size of your group that plans on attending.

We encourage students to visit the show as they are the future manufacturing professionals. Here are a few helpful tips that will make the show a success for you and the exhibitors.

Please attend our show after 11:00 am.
If you come in a large group, please break up into five or less people and plan on dispersing throughout the show.
Please approach booths that are not being visited by other attendees and try to keep your visit time to a minimum as exhibitors are conducting business.

Following these guidelines will ensure you are well received on the show floor and your experience will be a positive one.

Thank you in Advance,

Show Management
