Ceramics Expo 2016 Returns to Cleveland
Industry professionals will gather next month for the second annual Ceramics Expo.
Technical leaders, production directors, engineers, project leaders, buyers and senior executives will be returning to Cleveland, Ohio, from April 26-28 to attend the second iteration of Ceramics Expo at the I-X Center. The event will allow visitors to source the most cost-effective and efficient raw materials and ceramic processing equipment, stay up to date with the latest market requirements and cutting-edge supplier innovations, and share knowledge and network through the exhibition showcase and free-to-attend, two-track conference.
Exhibition and Networking
As a comprehensive manufacturing supply chain event, the exhibition will showcase a range of products and services that will include ceramic manufacturers, engineering and design services, raw materials, materials preparation, handling and packaging, heat treatments, fabrication and finishing, decorating and glazing, plant construction, design and engineering, laboratory equipment, testing and certification services, tools and spare parts, and research.
The event will feature three networking receptions this year. The welcome reception will be held 5-7 p.m. on Monday at Marriott Cleveland Airport Hotel. Also, two networking events will be held after the afternoon conference panels on Tuesday and Wednesday evening from 4:30-6:30 p.m.
Ceramics Expo will also host a two-track conference, held on two stages in the exhibition space. The two tracks will cover the latest topics and innovations in glass and ceramics applications and manufacturing. The Applications Track brings industry experts together to discuss key challenges and opportunities of various material properties and their application across several industries. The program examines the commercialization of new technology and brings together OEMs to discuss the infinite possibilities of technical ceramics and glass.
The Manufacturing Track will discuss the latest developments in the material supply chain, forming technologies, ceramic and glass processing technology and quality assurance. This track is specifically designed for suppliers, manufacturers, and end users of ceramic and glass processing technologies and will discuss a broad range of issues, including: Developing the Supply Chain for Ceramic Matrix Composites (learn more about this track); examining near-net shaping technologies such as injection molding, pressing, and precision glass molding; and processing and application of nanomaterials.
