The goal of each Open Quarterly Meeting (OQM) is to bring component manufacturers (CMs) and suppliers together to discuss the latest issues facing the components industry. Besides BCMC, OQMs are one of the most valuable investments CMs can make both from the perspective of return on that investment and industry-specific best practice development. Given their focus on open dialogue and social interaction, the relationship building opportunities at each OQM are unparalleled. Everyone is welcome to attend. See full 2017 OQM schedule here.
