MIM2021 to take place as virtual conference

August 27, 2020

The Metal Powder Industries Federation (MPIF) reports that MIM2021: International Conference on Injection Molding of Metals, Ceramics and Carbides, scheduled to take place in West Palm Beach, Florida, USA, February 22–24, will now be held as a virtual conference.

In an official statement, the MPIF wrote, “Due to continued concerns regarding the global COVID-19 pandemic, the MIM2021 International Conference on Injection Molding of Metals, Ceramics and Carbides that was to be held February 22-24, 2021 in West Palm Beach, Florida, will now be held virtually. West Palm Beach will host the MIM2022 conference.” 

James P Adams, MPIF Executive Director/CEO, commented, “It is disappointing that the Powder Metallurgy industry will miss another opportunity to meet in person due to COVID-19. Our industry desires to meet, network, and discuss ongoing R&D to advance the technology. However, the health and safety of our industry is paramount, so MIM2021 will be held as a virtual conference.” 

The virtual edition of the MIM2021 conference will reportedly include presentations on the latest advancement Metal Injection Moulding, including e-handouts of the presentations; a virtual exhibit; the latest technological process & product innovations commercial presentations; several publications; and an optional PIM Tutorial instructed by Matt Bulger, the former president of MIMA (Metal Injection Molding Association).

The conference’s target audience is product designers, engineers, consumers, manufacturers, researchers, educators, and students. All individuals with an interest in this technology and application of its parts are encouraged to attend.

Abstract submissions are still being accepted until the deadline of September 30, 2020.

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