ALD’s 9th Vacuum Metallurgy Conference & Workshop
«Taking Flight with Premium Melting Techniques»
has been postponed
ALD remains committed to continuing our popular biennial conference series in Seattle, WA, USA, at The Museum of Flight and the Boeing Everett Factory Tour.
However, the COVID-19 health crisis travel restrictions and uncertainties today make it difficult if not impossible for our invited guests and sponsors to consider future plans. Considering also the complicated circumstances in the region, ALD’s 9th Vacuum Metallurgy Conference & Workshop originally planned for November 10-13, 2020 in Seattle has been postponed until 2021.
We are already working to ensure that the conference & workshop will remain as planned.
A revised invitation will be sent later in 2020 when we reassess the situation and hope the world outlook has recovered.
In the meantime, please be safe and healthy.
Our conference & workshop is focused on operational aspects of premium melting, re-melting, casting and atomization techniques and systems most interesting to ALD’s customers and suppliers.
We encourage our attendees and sponsors to share their experiences by presenting a paper.
One day will be held in The Museum of Flight itself overlooking Boeing Field. Attendees will have general admission access to their spectacular galleries during the conference breaks. Furthermore, we will feature the Boeing Everett Factory Tour, a one-of-a kind opportunity to view 747, 767, 777 and 787 Dreamliners on the assembly line before they take off to the sky.
The preliminary program is as follow:
- Day 1: Arrival Seattle (SEA), registration at hotel TBD, welcome reception at location TBD
- Day 2: Technical Conference at The Museum of Flight, Seattle, WA
- Day 3: Technical Conference at Boeing Future of Flight, including Boeing Everett Factory Tour
- Day 4: Tour of Seattle area TBD
