Ceramics Expo 2021 to run as planned in August

June 8, 2021

The organiser of Ceramics Expo 2021, Smarter Shows (Tarsus) Ltd, has announced that the event will take place as planned from August 30–September 1, in Cleveland, Ohio, USA, but will be held at a new venue – The Huntington Convention Center.

The new venue will reportedly enable seamless safety measures for attendees, including floor plan changes to accommodate social distancing between its more than 250 exhibitors. The free-to-attend conference runs concurrently with the exhibition and brings together industry leaders to share their technical expertise in ceramics and provide real-world case studies, new technologies and materials, along with information on industry trends.

The 2021 conference theme focuses on ‘enabling a clean, efficient and electrified future’ and will feature over thirty speakers highlighting the most pressing industry and supply chain challenges, with experts discussing sustainability, diversity and inclusion, industrial applications and resilience post-COVID-19. The conference stage will host panel discussions on areas such as Additive Manufacturing, the role of ceramics in 5G, and energy storage.

Raymond Pietersen, event director at Ceramics Expo, stated “This is the largest in-person event for the global ceramics industry in 2021. We’re very proud to have retained over 80% of our exhibitors – which is not only a testament to the resilience of the industry but a hopeful sign that we’re going to continue to grow post-COVID. We’re really looking forward to reuniting with our peers, colleagues, friends and customers face-to-face in August.”

Mark Mecklenborg, executive director at The American Ceramics Society, commented, “With exceptional opportunities for collaboration, Ceramics Expo plays a pivotal role in gathering all the leading stakeholders in our industry. I’m thoroughly looking forward to meeting everyone in the new venue, with renewed energy and focus following the challenges of 2020.”

Further information and registration details are available via the event website.
