Networking Across Nations

WAC offers attendees a chance to network with industry colleagues from Asia, Europe, South Africa, Latin America and India. Meet individuals from every corner of the globe at events such as the Opening Ceremony and Welcome Reception. WAC is about embracing our similarities while celebrating our differences with delegates from other cultures and nations.

A Sold-Out Trade Show

With more than 100 exhibitors, the WAC Expo is one of the largest global showcases of the industry. Walking this Expo floor means exposing yourself to global innovations and raw material breakthroughs that advance the state of the industry.
