The NW Electronics Design & Manufacturing Expo (NEDME) began 20 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, the expo—held at the Tektronix Campus—features nearly 75 exhibitors from Oregon, Washington, and British Columbia, and draws several hundred attendees each year.
True to its original values, the show continues to bring together members of the local high-tech industry in a fun atmosphere, all the while supporting a good cause—all proceeds from the show benefit the Oregon Food Bank.
