AKRON—The ACS Rubber Division is excited to gather together once again for the International Elastomer Conference, set for Oct. 4-7 in Pittsburgh.
"The International Elastomer Conference is the one place, one time a year, where you find the best of our industry all under one roof," the group said on its website. "It is an event where connections are made, knowledge is shared, new products, new technology and new ideas are introduced, business is conducted, developed and gained, fun is had, encouragement and empowerment happen, and the future is embraced."
Registration prices for the gathering increase Sept. 1. There are blocks of rooms reserved at a range of downtown Pittsburgh hotels, visit www.rubberiec.org/hotel_travel.cfm for more information.
There will be more than 150 companies with exhibits at the expo, with 90 presentations set for the 200th technical meeting of the association. There will be a Women of the Rubber Division workshop, a science and technology awards luncheon, a career fair and a student symposium, among other activities.
