The Exhibition/Trade Show is held in conjunction with the Annual Meeting of The Adhesion Society. More than 200 scientists and engineers from industry, government, and academia attend the meeting. The Adhesion Society wants to make sure that those attending get the full benefit of the exhibits and establish and strengthen ties with the organizations that are exhibitors. To this end, the schedule is carefully planned. The Exhibition opens on the first day, and remains open until after the Tuesday morning break. The maximum interaction between the exhibitors and the meeting attendees is ensured by holding the morning and afternoon coffee breaks in the Exhibition area. Furthermore, both the President’s Reception on Sunday evening and the Poster Session on Monday evening are held in the Exhibition area.
