The Adhesive and Sealant Council (ASC) recently announced that it has moved the dates of its 10th World Adhesive and Sealant Conference (WAC) — currently scheduled for April 19-21, 2021 — to April 25-27, 2022.
The host location remains the Hilton Chicago in downtown Chicago, IL.
“For WAC to be successful for the global adhesive and sealant community for which it is held, ASC, as host, must ensure it is scheduled at a time most suitable for its international attendees,” said ASC president Bill Allmond. “Global uncertainty about the economy and the COVID-19 health crisis remains a concern through mid-2021. Therefore, with strong support from our Asian and European partners, we decided that the responsible decision was to move WAC to 2022.”
Additionally, ASC will be hosting a Convention & EXPO and a technical Short Course, which will be scheduled for the fall of 2021 — with the exact dates and location announced shortly.
“We are optimistic that by the fourth quarter of 2021, health and economic conditions domestically will be much improved, enabling ASC to safely and successfully host virtual and in-person attendance at our Convention & EXPO,” Allmond said. “We are excited to also schedule the annual ASC Leadership Conference the same week as the Convention & EXPO, which will provide rewarding incentives for attendees of both events.”
