Design-2-Part, has made the decision to reschedule the Southern New England Design-2-Part Show in Uncasville, CT to December 3 & 4, 2020.
The decision to reschedule was not an easy one. Since Connecticut was on pace for record attendance, we feel the shift to the December dates will carry that same excitement. Design-2-Part is strongly positioned to help U.S. manufacturing re-establish itself as the most reliable global source for parts and services.
Any questions surrounding the Connecticut Show should be directed to D2P’s sales and customer service departments. If you were planning on staying at Mohegan Sun as a part of our room block, they will handle your cancellation as a group. If you made your reservations outside our room block, you will need to cancel your own reservation.

PORTSMOUTH — An endangered business-to-business publication was saved from possible extinction thanks to the efforts of Boldwerks, a Portsmouth-based marketing and advertising firm.
The Gateway Magazine was created in 1999 and published by Bill and Sharon Bryson out of their Milton home. As a business-to-business magazine, it provided purchasers of manufacturing equipment with advertising, listings and information they might need for their companies.
Bill Bryson, deciding it was time to retire, advertised in the magazine of the need for someone to purchase the magazine and take over the publishing, otherwise it would be shut down. Boldwerks answered the call.
