The Adhesive and Sealant Council’s Spring 2007 Convention and Exposition will take place April 15-18 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.
