September 29, 2014 – Bethesda, MD – The Adhesive and Sealant Council (ASC) announces its 2015 and 2016 schedule which will include four Conventions and EXPOs, four Short Courses and a Leadership Conference. The Council will also manage the Adhesion Society’s two annual meetings.
The ASC meeting line up is as follows:
“ASC has a solid calendar of meetings now in place to help guide members planning over the next two years,” notes Matthew E. Croson, President of ASC. “The calendar includes two new short courses that are part of the Long Range Plan, and we encourage industry to pay attention to these new programs as they will be strongly supportive of your technical teams.”
ASC plans its major meetings on a two year timeline. The Council works to avoid scheduling conflicts including events managed by ACA, CPI, ASTM, PSTC, USGBC, Radtech, and other major religious and Federal holidays.
The Council also selects its locations based on attendance patters, locations of members and industry at large, and hotel ability to meet rooming requirements.
“Over the past five years, ASC’s events have doubled in size, with 600+ now attending the Convention, EXPO or Short Courses,” notes Croson. “The result is that ASC now looks for larger hotels in slightly larger cities, or within areas that can accommodate 900+ room nights. In some cases, we are also looking for hotel locations that allow ASC to have a secondary hotel for overflow, in case the primary location is oversold.”
