ASC Announces Educational Program for 2009 Fall Convention & EXPO (9/14/09)

The Adhesive and Sealant Council, Inc. (ASC) has announced its educational program for the ASC 2009 Fall Convention & EXPO. The convention, which will be held in Lexington, KY, Oct. 11-13, will feature myriad technical and business presentations. The theme of the event is Maintaining a Thoroughbred Spirit: Strength and Endurance for Challenging Times, which the Council feels is reflective of both the resilient industry character and the convention venue.  

“Much of ASC’s fall convention will focus on the next phase of the current economic situation - recovery - as well as its implications for our industry and what organizations need to do to prepare for 2010 and beyond,” said ASC President Lawrence D. Sloan. “Taking time to come together as an industry to network, exchange ideas and strategize is imperative to our collective future success.”

Emphasis on lean management, maximizing performance and other ways to prosper during a recessionary economy are key program topics that will be addressed during the convention. Featured speakers will include industry leaders, experts in change management, consultants, and specialists in the technical and research and development arenas.

In addition to the convention’s educational program, ASC’s Waterborne Adhesives technical short course will be offered. The expert-led, comprehensive curriculum will explore waterborne adhesives in use today, recent developments in “green” chemistry, application and production equipment, and various additives and other formulation techniques that can enhance products. Registrants for both the convention and the short course will receive a discount.

On Monday, Oct. 12, the ASC EXPO - the largest adhesive and sealant product showcase in the western hemisphere - will feature leading suppliers, toll manufacturers, and distributors to demonstrate the latest products, innovations, and services.

Pre-registration for the ASC 2009 Fall Convention & EXPO ends Sept. 25. Access to general sessions, educational sessions, networking events and the industry EXPO is included with registration fee.
