The Design-2-Part Shows have announced that they will relocate their previously scheduled September, 2010 show in Nashville, Tennessee to nearby Huntsville, Alabama. The change is being made in reaction to the recent rains and flooding that have inundated the Nashville region. The Mid-South Design-2-Part Show will now take place at the Von Braun Center in Huntsville on September 14 & 15, 2010–one day earlier than original dates for Nashville.
The original venue, the Gaylord Opryland Convention Center and Hotel, was heavily hit and received major flood damage. At this time, Gaylord management is unsure when they will reopen for business and can’t guarantee the September event could take place without logistical problems.
The Mid-South Design-2-Part Show will provide design engineers, manufacturing engineers, and purchasing personnel the chance to meet face-to-face with local and national contract manufacturers to source custom parts, components, services, and design. Exhibiting companies will showcase their latest manufacturing technologies from design and prototyping through finishing services. The show floor will feature more than 300 product categories for the metals, plastics, rubber and electronics industries.
Attendees will get their best opportunity of the year to find new suppliers that can help them reduce their manufacturing costs, improve their quality, and shorten time-to-market. In addition to finding new suppliers, visitors come to the show looking for new technologies to improve their processes. Design-2-Part Shows are working shows and visitors are encouraged to bring sample parts and drawings.
Show hours are 9:30-3:30 on Tuesday, September 14, and 9:30-3:00 on Wednesday, September 15. Attendance is free to qualified industry personnel.
