What is EDS?

EDS is a leadership summit.

It is an important gathering of the movers, shakers and brightest minds that electronic component manufacturers, distributors and representatives have to offer.

In an energized, progressive atmosphere, top decision makers come together to build business. It’s a forum to plan, discuss new opportunities, and reset goals.

The core of EDS is valuable idea exchange. It happens through high-level strategic meetings, event functions and informal gatherings. Business relationships are rekindled and new ones formed.

EDS is more than just one week in May. It is year-round matchmaking and planning activity that culminates in Las Vegas at the EDS Summit.

If you’ve never been to EDS, then you’ve been missing out on some amazing opportunities. It’s not your typical tradeshow environment where all of the action happens on the convention floor. EDS is a combination of scheduled, one-on-one meetings, product exhibits, educational programs and networking opportunities to maximize success. 

EDS is a strongly supported, joint effort by the industry's top member organizations: the Electronic Components Industry Association and the Electronic Representatives Association.
