The Adhesive and Sealant Council, Inc. (ASC) will host the World Adhesive Conference and Expo (WAC) April 20-23 in Miami, FL.

From a welcome reception to the ASC 50th anniversary celebration, numerous organized social events will allow attendees to network and make contacts.

WAC is co-sponsored by trade associations from around the world, who share ASC’s core competency of representing and advocating for the adhesive and sealant industry. From Canada to China, it is the global nature of WAC that truly makes it such a remarkable event (see sidebar for a list of co-sponsors).

The global nature of the event brings more than just the support of international associations and glue companies. Various members of the trade press and academic community have been valuable contributors to the WAC program and promotional efforts. Most notably, ASI magazine has stepped up as the conference media partner and has worked to ensure the success of the conference.   “WAC unites the entire industry,” ASC President Lawrence D. Sloan said. “From the reporters who cover chemical news to the scientist working on advances in adhesion science, WAC has value for everyone in the industry.”
