The Ceramics Expo conference is free to attend


The third annual Ceramics Expo conference will take place in Cleveland, Ohio, USA, from April 25-27, 2017. The organisers state that the event will once again provide a vibrant and dynamic platform for the exchange of ideas in parallel with the exhibition. The event aims to promote advances in ceramic manufacturing and enable the demonstration of the many and varied industrial applications for ceramics.

The conference, which is free to attend, will feature experts with a deep knowledge of the ceramics industry who will present the latest ideas and developments in materials, manufacturing, applications and future strategies. The Ceramics Expo conference will comprise twin-track sessions. Day one will start with a plenary session on ‘Forecasting Key Ceramic Markets to Understand Industry Trends’ followed by tracks on ‘Ceramic Material Properties and Application’ and ‘Ceramic Coating and CMC Manufacturing Processes’. This is followed on day two by a properties and applications track as well as a track on ‘Forming Technologies and Automation’. The final day sees the presentation of tracks on ‘Medical Applications’ and ‘Ceramic and Glass Manufacturing’.

The speaker line-up includes Scott Nelson (Delphi), Venkat Anandan (Ford Motor Company), Chad White (Siemens USA), Shay Harrison (Free Form Fibers), Dr Sonny Bal (Amedica), Jason Langhorn (DePuy Synthes) and Dr Kapil Deshpande (Croda).

The organisers state that the conference has been specially designed for engineers and decision makers from OEMs and Tier 1s in the automotive, aerospace, defence, medical, electronics, industrial, energy and communication industries. Delegates can pick just those sessions that are of interest and can break out at any time to take in the booths on the exhibit floor. All are invited to network in a relaxed atmosphere during the event’s evening drinks receptions.
