The World Adhesive & Sealant Conference (WAC) is the most important INTERNATIONAL event for stakeholders in the Adhesive and Sealant industry worldwide. WAC takes place only once every four years alternating between the United States, Europe and Asia.


WAC 2020 will take the place of ASC's Annual Spring Convention and EXPO this year.




The 2020 World Adhesive & Sealant Conference will be postponed.

Due to many factors related to COVID-19 beyond our control, including the State of Illinois banning gatherings of 1,000 people or more until May 1, 2020, The Adhesive and Sealant Council (ASC), is forced to postpone the 2020 World Adhesive and Sealant Conference scheduled for April 20-22, 2020 in Chicago, Illinois.

ASC is working to secure dates to reschedule WAC 2020 at the same venue, the Hilton Chicago, for a later date in 2020. The new dates for the event will be announced as soon as possible.

Attendees who have already booked rooms at the Hilton Chicago should be aware of the following message from Hilton regarding refunds HERE.

The health and well-being of all of our attendees, exhibitors, speakers, and sponsors are of the utmost importance. ASC will continue to keep you informed of further details related to the postponement and rescheduling.

Thank you for your support and cooperation as we work to secure a new date for WAC 2020. If you have questions, please send an email to info@wac2020.org.
