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.’”
