Spark Logo Rgb

Spark is an edu­ca­tion­al pro­gram offered con­cur­rent­ly with the EDS Sum­mit, cre­at­ed for tal­ent­ed indi­vid­u­als from man­u­fac­tur­ers, man­u­fac­tur­ers rep­re­sen­ta­tives and dis­trib­u­tors in the elec­tron­ic com­po­nents indus­try. Par­tic­i­pat­ing in Spark ben­e­fits every­one: your peo­ple, your busi­ness, EDS and the elec­tron­ic com­po­nents industry.

Aimed at edu­cat­ing and devel­op­ing our industry’s next gen­er­a­tion of pro­fes­sion­als, Spark includes:

  • An intro­duc­tion to EDS — how it func­tions and how to best use it
  • Indus­try experts shar­ing knowl­edge of top­ics, cur­rent events and future out­looks in elec­tron­ic components
  • Inter­ac­tive work­shops bring­ing aware­ness to the impact of per­son­al brands and indi­vid­ual development
  • Oppor­tu­ni­ties to inter­act with peers and indus­try lead­ers to increase their networks

There is a lim­it of 2 atten­dees per com­pa­ny. The max­i­mum num­ber of atten­dees is 30. We sug­gest your atten­dees have less than 5 years in the indus­try. All Spark atten­dees receive a spe­cial EDS Spark reg­is­tra­tion rate of $500, which includes ses­sions, meals and net­work­ing. The reg­is­tra­tion cost includes a con­firmed seat for all pro­gram ses­sions, access to pro­gram pre­sen­ta­tions and mate­ri­als, and invi­ta­tion to join the Spark alum LinkedIn group. Com­ple­tion of the intro­duc­to­ry Spark pro­gram sat­is­fies the pre­req­ui­site required to attend the advanced Spark 2.0 pro­gram. Com­ple­tion of the Spark 2.0 pro­gram allows access to the appli­ca­tion Spark 3.0 pro­gram. For more infor­ma­tion relat­ed to any of the Spark pro­grams, please con­tact spark@​edssummit.​com.
