The Adhesive and Sealant Council (ASC) recently announced that it has moved the dates of the 10th World Adhesive and Sealant Conference (WAC), previously scheduled for April 19-21, 2021, to April 25-27, 2022. The host location remains the Hilton Chicago in downtown Chicago, Ill. ASC also announced that it will host a Convention & EXPO and technical Short Course, to be scheduled for fall 2021; dates and location will reportedly be announced soon. 

“For WAC to be successful for the global adhesive and sealant community for which it is held, ASC, as host, must ensure it is scheduled at a time most suitable for its international attendees,” said Bill Allmond, ASC president. “Global uncertainty about the economy and the Covid-19 health crisis remains a concern through mid-2021. Therefore, with strong support from our Asian and European partners, we decided that the responsible decision was to move WAC to 2022.

“We are optimistic that by the fourth quarter of 2021, health and economic conditions domestically will be much improved, enabling ASC to safely and successfully host virtual and in-person attendance at our Convention & EXPO. We are excited to also schedule the annual ASC Leadership Conference the same week as the Convention & EXPO, which will provide rewarding incentives for attendees of both events.”
