Shipbuilding & Aluminum Conference 2019


Shipbuilding and Aluminum Conference

SEPTEMBER 17-19, 2019
New Orleans, LA

Industry experts will deliver the latest research and innovations in both the Shipbuilding and Aluminum industries. Aluminum is one of the most versatile and widely used metals in manufacturing. However, its unique chemical and physical properties can also make it one of the most challenging to weld. The critical importance of welding in the shipbuilding industry will also be addressed by providing current information on emerging technologies being developed for shipbuilding applications.

Shipbuilding & Aluminum Conference 2019

Due to the overlap in technology, these two events will take place in the same week, at the same hotel! To take advantage of this, purchase the combination registration package that gives you access to both technical programs.

Exhibiting alongside the American Welding Society gives more exposure to your company among vendors in the welding industry. It enables you to establish name recognition and product identity amidst competitors. Our events bring qualified and professional individuals interested in the welding trade right to you. This provides a valuable crossroad enabling your business to increase their sales and forge new partnerships. Participating in AWS Conferences allow you to network with industry peers to find the best solutions for business growth and obtain broader access to lenders within different fields of the welding industry.

AWS Learning 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.
