Editor's Memo: ASC Fall 2013

The industry will soon gather in Minneapolis for the Adhesive and Sealant Council’s (ASC) Fall Convention and Expo, which will be held October 21-23 at the Hilton Minneapolis. From the Hot Melt Short course, insightful keynotes and technical sessions to the Expo and a variety of networking opportunities, the event is sure to provide attendees with numerous opportunities to expand their knowledge of products, technologies, and the industry as a whole.

In the October issue of ASI, ASC President Matt Croson shares 5 Trends Impacting the Adhesive and Sealant Industry, noting that many of these issues will be touched on in Minneapolis. “These five trends are some of the value drivers impacting our industry,” he writes. “You’ll hear a lot more about them when you attend the upcoming ASC Fall Convention.”

An exhibitor list and floor plan for the Expo are also provided in this issue to help you locate exhibitors on the floor. Please also be sure to take a look at our Exhibits in Print section, where industry suppliers highlight their company offerings and, when applicable, share details about what visitors to their Expo booths can expect.

In addition, we’ve created a microsite devoted specifically to our coverage of the ASC Fall Convention and Expo. Visit to read in-depth articles and columns, listen to podcasts, take a look at the At-a-Glance Event Schedule, reference the exhibitor list and floor plan, investigate booth previews, read our daily coverage of the technical sessions and Expo floor, and more. We’ll also be tweeting live throughout the event to provide you with up-to-the-minute details. Send us a shout-at on Twitter using #ASItweetsASC and let us know how the event is going for you!

 We hope you’re enjoying our extended coverage of the ASC Fall Convention and Expo, and we’d love to hear your feedback. Please contact me at (330) 336-4098 or with your comments and suggestions. Or, better yet—share your thoughts with me live and in person in Minneapolis!
