Registration now open for aluminum extrusion expo


Registration for the 12th International Aluminum Extrusion Technology Seminar & Exposition – ET ’21 is open.

The 2020 ET Seminar was postponed due to restrictions. ET ’21 is scheduled for May 11 – May 13, 2020 in Orlando, Florida. An early discount for ET ’21 registration fees is applicable through March 26, 2021. Teams of five or more registrants from the same company can receive an additional team discount by registering at the same time.

The ET Seminar will celebrate its 50th anniversary during ET ’21, and as such the ET Foundation and the Aluminum Extruders Council will be planning a special celebration to commemorate the occasion. In addition to providing a forum to present cutting-edge aluminum extrusion research, ET ’21 will include the ET Expo, an exhibition featuring extrusion industry suppliers, and the Extrusion Showcase, a special exhibit that highlights the best and brightest application designs featuring aluminum extrusions. Add-on educational workshops will be held before and after the event to provide a well-rounded learning and networking experience. Those interested in attending one of the industry workshops may add a workshop to their ET registration or register to attend only a workshop during ET ’21 week.

Abstracts for technical papers currently accepted for presentation are available to review on the ET ’21 website.

“The ET program remains essentially intact after having to postpone the event this year due to the effects and circumstances surrounding the coronavirus pandemic,” said ET seminar committee chairman Craig Werner, Werner Extrusion Solutions in Libertyville, Illinois. “We are eager and determined to deliver the exceptional program that ET delegates deserve and have come to expect. We are optimistic that global events will cooperate with us in 2021 so that the world’s aluminum extrusion professionals can experience the technical advancements achieved by our industry.”

The ET Seminar, which is held just once every four years, addresses a variety of relevant and timely topics covering aluminum profile production, die design and technology, metallurgy, equipment, product applications, and more. The multi-day educational event attracts a worldwide audience of more than 1,300 industry professionals eager to discover the latest technical information about aluminum extrusion and network with industry peers from all over the world.
