August 15, 2017 – Bethesda, MD – The Adhesive and Sealant Council (ASC) announces its 2018 and 2019 educational conference schedule to include an Annual Spring Convention & EXPO, three Short Courses and an Annual Executive Leadership Conference. The Council will also manage the Adhesion Society’s 2018 and 2019 annual meetings.

The ASC meeting lineup is as follows:




“ASC now has a solid calendar of meetings in place to help the adhesive and sealant industry plan for important events occurring over the next two years,” notes Malinda Armstrong, Senior Director, Meetings & Expositions at ASC.

“This will provide annual programming for all levels within ASC’s member companies, from the leadership team to the technical and sales team”, notes Armstrong.

The Annual Spring Convention & EXPO is the largest event for ASC and an important event for the entire industry to attend.

“This year we had record attendance at the convention, a record number of exhibitors in the EXPO, and added several new components, such as the ASC Innovation Awards, so we are excited about continued growth over the next two years,”

The 2018 Annual Spring Convention, being held at the Hyatt Regency Miami, will include twelve sessions geared towards market segments within the industry, two concurrent short courses (a handout is available for DOWNLOAD), an EXPANDED EXPO with over 100+ exhibitors and the newly created Innovation Awards.

The EXPO allows companies to reach the industry by networking and showcasing their products and services to buyers and decision makers. The Spring EXPO is already 50% sold out. Booths are assigned on a first-come-first-serve basis and can be reserved using the exhibitor handout and contract, which is available for DOWNLOAD, or reserved online at

The Innovation Awards will recognize companies that have made efforts to differentiate and make a significant impact in the marketplace. These awards identify significant impact chemistries that contribute to downstream industries’ unmet needs and advancements in technology. The awards are intended to foster and encourage innovation across the adhesive & sealant industry.

In preparation for next year’s event, ASC is now accepting abstracts ONLINE for inclusion in the 2018 Annual Spring Convention program.

ASC plans its major meetings on a two-year timeline. The Council works to avoid scheduling conflicts with events managed by ACA, CPI, ASTM, PSTC, USGBC, Radtech, and with major religious and federal holidays.

Information about ASC’s meetings and events is always available 24/7 at as details become available.
