Metalcasters and foundry industry suppliers from around the world are networking and sharing knowledge during the first-ever virtual Metalcasting Congress, which launched today.
Metalcasting Congress 2021 features expert speakers covering all major technical and management areas, interactive digital exhibits from leading suppliers and North American foundries, keynote speeches, panels, Q&A sessions, the unveiling of the Casting of the Year, and more.
The entire show is available live online and on demand, with scheduled programming and staffed exhibits running Mondays through Thursdays, April 12-22. Virtual booths in the Exhibit Hall are open 24/7. Registrants can also stream presentation recordings at any time through May 17, making it easier than ever to take part. The virtual platform is simple to use and works on desktop, laptop, and mobile devices.
“The quality of this year’s Metalcasting Congress programming is unparalleled, and we’re pleased to offer it in a highly accessible, affordable online format,” said Doug Kurkul, CEO of the American Foundry Society, which hosts the event. “Dozens of industry experts have contributed their time and talents to produce more than 60 innovative presentations and panels. Exhibitors have created exciting, interactive ways to share their products and services with customers. And following the pandemic-enforced cancelation of last year’s Congress, our attendees are especially eager to network and learn.”
Registration is still available, and will remain open for the duration of the event. The All Access Experience Pass ($300 for AFS Members/$400 for non-members) and Exhibit Pass ($20 for AFS Members/$30 for non-members) include live access on April 12-22, and unlimited streaming through mid-May.
