The MPIF says that PowderMet2021 will now take place both in person, in Orlando, Florida, and online, at the event website.

The 2021 North American conference on powder metallurgy (PM) and particulate materials takes place from 20–23 June 2021 and will feature over 200 technical presentations from industry experts presenting on PM, particulate materials, metal additive manufacturing (AM), and tungsten, the organization said. All delegates will be able to view presentations on demand for two weeks following the conference at www.powdermet2021.org.

‘We know travel plans are uncertain right now, but we are moving forward with our campaign for a professionally rewarding conference,’ said James P.Adams, executive director. ‘Powder metallurgy continues to be an innovative technology. We must ensure that all speakers are given the platform to present their work, while providing an opportunity for design engineers, materials scientists, and end users to hone their knowledge, regardless of travel restrictions that could have made participating impossible.’
