The MPIF says that it has put in place new networking events during powder metal (PM) conferences POWDERMET2018 and AMPM2018, both taking place in San Antonio, Texas, from 17-20 July 2018.

These include

  • Grant TNT: Talk ‘N Technology, located in the exhibit hall during non-compete time, where 40 National Science Foundation (NSF) Grant recipients and the 4 CPMT/Axel Madsen Conference Grant recipients will present a 10-minute synopsis of their posters
  • The PM Evening Alehouse which provides extra time for attendees to devote to the largest tradeshow in North American on PM, particulate materials, and metal additive manufacturing
  • Boots and Blue Jeans: A Texas BBQ, the closing event included in the registration package.

The exhibit hall hours have also been extended, the MPIF says.
