Back to the Sum­mit: EDS returns May 10 – 132022.

It’s been two years. And that’s way too long. With the elec­tron­ics com­po­nents indus­try fac­ing an uncer­tain busi­ness cli­mate and sup­ply-chain chal­lenges, this EDS Sum­mit – the first since 2019 – is more impor­tant than ever.

There’s Noth­ing Like the EDS Lead­er­ship Summit.

With a lega­cy dat­ing back decades, the annu­al EDS Lead­er­ship Sum­mit is a pre­mier annu­al event for the elec­tron­ic com­po­nents indus­try. EDS is absolute­ly unique in the con­fer­ence and trade show busi­ness because it func­tions as both a high-lev­el, meet­ing-based event and a vibrant mar­ket­place of ideas. 

Bring­ing Togeth­er the Industry’s Top Talent.

It’s called a lead­er­ship sum­mit,” because, for four pro­duc­tive days, EDS brings togeth­er indus­try experts and deci­sion-mak­ers from the world’s top man­u­fac­tur­ers, dis­trib­u­tors and sales rep­re­sen­ta­tives to share insights, focus resources, make plans and build new busi­ness. At the heart of EDS is an idea exchange, which takes place at strate­gic meet­ings, event func­tions and infor­mal gath­er­ings through­out the Summit.

Want a Stronger Sup­ply Chain? Get Per­son­al at EDS.

Ensur­ing a more resilient sup­ply chain is not just tech­no­log­i­cal or data-based. It’s per­son­al: per­son-to-per­son busi­ness rela­tion­ships based on mutu­al­ly aligned goals. In today’s glob­al­ized busi­ness envi­ron­ments, col­lab­o­ra­tion is the glue’ that holds sup­ply chains togeth­er. And col­lab­o­ra­tion is what we fos­ter at EDS – because we believe that con­ver­sa­tion and con­fer­ence lead to commerce.”

Every meet­ing is an oppor­tu­ni­ty to build your company’s brand, so be pur­pose­ful, deliv­er a clear mes­sage, and always – fol­low up.
