The Adhesive and Sealant Council, Inc. (ASC) is hosting the World Adhesive Conference and Expo (WAC) and in 2008 for the first time in more than a decade. The event takes place every four years and is the place where the international adhesive and sealant community gathers to showcase the latest industry innovations, exchange business practices and advance the industry through international relations. This year’s event will take place from April 20 – 23in


“ASC is honored to host WAC 2008,” states ASC President Lawrence Sloan. “The last time ASC organized the international event was 12 years ago in San Francisco, Ca. It was a very successful conference, but we have every intention of orchestrating the best international adhesive and sealant event to date.”


To this end, ASC recognized the importance of globalization by purposefully seeking convention speakers from around the world. The latest industry trends, such as “green”, end-user technology and reactive adhesives, are discussed from an international perspective. In addition to seeking a diverse group of speakers, ASC is also providing numerous opportunities for attendees to network.


“In 2008, ASC will have represented the American adhesive and sealant industry for 50 years. We’ll be bringing this experience and understanding of the industry to WAC, so attendees can expect remarkable things. This is going to be one of those once in a lifetime events.”
