Ceramics Expo reports a positive response to its fifth event

Over 2,800 visitors attended Ceramics Expo 2019


Ceramics Expo 2019 was held at the I-X Center in Cleveland, Ohio, USA, from April 30–May 1, 2019. This marked the fifth edition in the event series, which is organised by Smarter Shows, Brighton, UK. The organisers reported a positive response to the event’s new two-day format, as well as newly-added features such as a pre-show VIP reception and networking event.

The exhibition hosted the complete ceramics supply chain, including raw material suppliers, equipment manufacturers and ceramics producers. Featured companies included CoorsTek, Corning, Morgan Advanced Materials, Kyocera, Schott and Saint-Gobain. A Product Showcase featured live demonstrations of new machinery, testing services and analysis equipment from exhibitors which included 3DCeram Sinto, Beckman Coulter, OptiPro Systems and The Model Shop.

Held concurrently with the exhibition, the Ceramics Expo Conference presented sessions exploring future trends, manufacturing practices and developments from the ceramic and glass industry. The agenda was reportedly designed for engineers and decision makers in the automotive, aerospace/defence, medical, electronics, industrial, energy and communication industries. Companies who spoke at the conference included Lockheed Martin, Ford Motor Company, NASA, General Electric Aviation and Oak Ridge National Laboratory. This year, Ceramics Expo welcomed over 2,800 attendees and 300 exhibiting companies from thirty-five countries.

“It’s been awesome,” stated Mano Manoharan, Chief Technologist, Ceramic Composites and Coatings, GE Additive. “I think I came for the first time about five years ago and I think it has grown quite a bit since then, because I don’t remember as many aisles when I last came. So, I think every year it gets bigger. I think it’s also a larger range of participation – I see some academic people, a lot of industrial participation.”
Ceramics Expo has announced that next year’s exhibition and conference will again be held in Cleveland, Ohio, USA, from May 5–6, 2020.
