Expo Details

The NW Electronics Design & Manufacturing Expo
Oct 2, 2019
Tektronix Campus in Beaverton, Oregon


The NW Electronics Design & Manufacturing Expo (NEDME) is the premier trade show and networking event for members of the high-tech industry in the Pacific Northwest. NEDME connects local businesses with engineers, entrepreneurs, buyers, and reps in a fun atmosphere that promotes innovation and learning.

The expo began 16 years ago, and has grown into the largest event of its kind in the Pacific Northwest. Originally called OctoberBest, it was a small collection of industry people enjoying food and good company at the Washington County Fairgrounds. Today, NEDME is held at the Tektronix Campus in Beaverton and features nearly 75 exhibitors from Oregon, Washington, and British Columbia, and draws several hundred attendees each year.

True to its original values, this Northwest event continues to bring together members of the local high-tech industry in a unique way, all the while supporting a good cause—all proceeds from the show benefit the Oregon Food Bank.

However you plan to be involved in this year’s expo—as a sponsor, exhibitor, or attendee—we welcome you to NEDME.

Where is it?

NEDME is hosted at Building 38 on the Tektronix Campus in Beaverton, Oregon. The address is 3025 SW Zworykin Ave, Beaverton, OR 97005 (Map).

NEDME is proud to feature exhibits that range from 3D printing to complex circuitry fabrication. You can view our exhibitors or check out this year’s speakers to learn more about what’s going on at NEDME.

Finding suppliers who will help you develop innovative products, and electronics manufacturing services that help you get your products to market, is more important than ever. Find those quality suppliers to help you take your projects from concept to launch. Spend the day at NEDME and find all your sourcing for goods and services in design, manufacturing and more locally.

Finding new customers who we can help grow, by providing our services and expertise, is a top priority for us all. Exhibiting at this year’s show will provide a unique opportunity to interface not only with existing companies, but also start-ups, entrepreneurs, and “makers.” Networking with other suppliers at the show will also provide potential business partners and suppliers as well as the newest “maker-friendly” contributors and entrepreneurs.

You can download the sponsorship kit which has information regarding special booth pricing and other sponsorship opportunities. Sponsors enjoy exposure on the website, in the show booklet, and throughout NEDME’s social media and newsletters.

NEDME contributes 100% of net entrance proceeds to the Oregon Food Bank. Collection food barrels will be located near the registration desk the day of the show. All entrants and exhibitors are encouraged to donate five or more non-perishable food items. The regular price of the show without a food donation is $5 per person.

Exhibitor fees and sponsorships cover the costs of running the show every year.

Send us an email at info@nedme.com and we will be happy to respond with any questions about the expo.
