Nowadays, when one goes to a tradeshow, they attach this connotation of expecting to pay a little too much to view things that are readily available on the web. With the 2013 OctoberBest Expo though, they should expect so much more.
The 13th Annual OctoberBest Expo will be held on October 2nd, 2013 at Tektronix located in Beaverton, Oregon. The Expo features keynote speakers such as Cheryl Kennedy and Rob Rowland. The event will deliver a viable historical overview from engineers who were part of that history and attendees will have the opportunity to hear how our NW industry got started. There will be a display of historical Tek products dating back some 40 years. The booth will be staffed by engineers who were there and who personally designed these products.
What sets this event apart from others is the fact that attendees can see a myriad of local NW manufacturers, everything from metal and plastic manufacturing to cable assemblies and board stuffing and manufacturing- but also vendors who will consider you important. The IEEE tech sessions will present new technologies for uC to uC communications. This Expo will also give attendees the opportunity to renew acquaintances with colleagues as well as meeting new potential vendors along with partners and customers.
By attending this year’s OctoberBest Expo, you will be supporting the NW economy as the 100% goal of the Expo is to sustain and develop NW companies’ expansion and, thus, jobs and orders. Attendees will also be supporting the NW Food Bank since, each year a percentage of the proceeds are donated to the worthwhile organization.
So mark your calendars for October 2nd, 2013 and sign up to attend the OctoberBest Expo. With all of the endless benefits and opportunities this Expo presents, there’s no reason not to come out and support your local community as well as yourself.
