Largest free-to-attend ceramics event in US moves to new Cleveland venue, Aug 30-Sept 1
Ceramics Expo today announced that America’s largest free-to-attend event for the ceramics industry will return as planned from August 30th to September 1st 2021 in Cleveland, Ohio.
For the first time since its inception in 2014, the event is being held at a new venue – The Huntington Convention Center – in the heart of downtown Cleveland. This attractive location allows delegates to combine their Expo trip with a visit to some of the leading restaurants, entertainment centers, hotels, and cultural attractions nearby.
The large venue will enable seamless safety measures for Ceramics Expo visitors, including floor plan changes to accommodate social distancing between its 250+ exhibitors. The exhibition is the largest of its kind to go ahead this year, with leaders in the ceramics and advanced materials space such as NASA, McDanel Advanced Ceramic Technologies, Fiven, Kyocera, and Ferro all signed up to attend.
The 2021 conference program theme ‘Enabling a clean, efficient and electrified future’ will see over 30 speakers tackle the most pressing industry and supply chain challenges, with experts discussing sustainability, diversity and inclusion, industrial applications and resilience post COVID-19.
The conference stage will host dynamic panel discussions on areas such as additive manufacturing, the role of ceramics in 5g, and energy storage. Speakers include eminent voices from global companies and academia, including Northrop Grumman, Skyworks, GE Aviation, and Coorstek among others.
Raymond Pietersen, event director at Ceramics Expo says: “This is the largest in-person event for the global ceramics industry in 2021. We’re very proud to have retained over 80 per cent of our exhibitors – which is not only a testament to the resilience of the industry, but a hopeful sign that we’re going to continue to grow post-COVID. We’re really looking forward to reuniting with our peers, colleagues, friends and customers face-to-face in August.”
Mark Mecklenborg, executive director at The American Ceramics Society adds: “With exceptional opportunities for collaboration, Ceramics Expo plays a pivotal role in gathering all the leading stakeholders in our industry. I’m thoroughly looking forward to meeting everyone in the new venue, with renewed energy and focus following the challenges of 2020.”
