vintageTEK hosted a booth at the NW Electronics Design & Manufacturing Expo (NEDME) on October 2, 2019. This event started in 2003 as OctoberBest. It is currently held on the Tektronix Campus in Beaverton and features nearly 75 exhibitors from the pacific northwest. It connects local businesses with engineers, entrepreneurs, buyers, and sales representatives. Our 6' booth this year featured Tektronix first products, the Type 101 and 511, our Oscilloscope Music exhibit, our Sony/Tek Spectrum Analyzer, a Type 310 Oscilloscope, the Type 564 Storage Oscilloscope with the Automatic plugins, and a glass and ceramic CRT. The booth was well attended and was staffed by volunteers Dick Stack, Tom Goodapple, Dave Brown, and Dan Murphy.
This was our 7th year of representing the museum at NEDME. Our first booth was in 2013 and featured nearly 25' of space with a large assortment of instruments. We soon learned how much work it was to transport and display that much equipment.
We slimmed down our exhibits with a 12' booth that we ran through 2017. The last two years we've utilized a 6' booth which provides adequate representation of the museum with reasonable effort.
