AWS Conferences

The American Welding Society (AWS) was founded in 1919, as a nonprofit organization with a global mission to advance the science, technology and application of welding and allied joining and cutting processes, including brazing, soldering and thermal spraying. AWS strives to move the industry forward in both thought and action, as well as inspire new generations to see the exciting career opportunities available today. AWS conferences set the stage for new ideas, products and technology through interactive exhibits, educational programming, and networking opportunities.
