The Adhesive and Sealant Council’s Spring 2007 Convention and Exposition will be held April 15-18 at the Hyatt Regency Savannah in Savannah, GA. This year’s Spring Convention will feature a two-and-a-half day conference program, networking events and the adhesive and sealant industry’s largest exposition of raw materials, equipment, and service providers.

Educational sessions at the Spring Convention will feature a business or technical focus, and sample presentation topics include regulatory issues, raw materials, additives, reactives, structural adhesives and sealants, global markets, and more. The program will also feature a special “hot topics” session addressing the latest critical issues affecting the industry.

Co-located with the Spring Convention, ASC also offers its Caulks & Sealants Short Course. The course, which will run April 15-16, is designed for entry-level chemists, applications engineers, sales and marketing professionals, and other technical personnel employed by adhesive companies, raw material and equipment suppliers, and end users. The Caulks & Sealants Short Course will cover markets, additives, processing, testing, regulation and more.

Personnel from all levels and departments of large and small adhesive and sealant manufacturer and supplier companies are encouraged to attend the ASC’s Spring 2007 Convention and Exposition. Academicians and end users are also invited to attend at discounted rates.
