Where the Electronics Industry Connects!
EDS is the leadership summit for the movers, shakers and brightest minds that electronic component manufacturers, distributors and representatives have to offer. ECIA represents these electronic component manufacturer, distributor and representative companies that convene in Las Vegas each May to develop business strategies, and build and renew business relationships. Together with the Electronic Representatives Association (ERA), ECIA co-sponsors EDS as a forum to plan, discuss new opportunities, and reset goals for the electronic components supply chain and support services.
EDS 2019 will take place at the Mirage Las Vegas, Tuesday through Friday, May 7-10. The Mirage meeting venues promote a business atmosphere where valuable idea exchange can happen through high-level strategic meetings, event functions and informal gatherings.
ECIA's CEO Bill Bradford: "The companies here work weeks and sometimes months in advance to fill up a meeting schedule, and use EDS as a very efficient way to cover a lot of meetings in a very compressed amount of time."
