Otherwise known as ET ’20, the aluminum extrusion technical conference will be held Monday, May 19 through Friday, May 22, 2020 at the Hyatt Regency Orlando Hotel in Orlando, Florida, USA. Having begun in 1969, the ET Seminar will celebrate its 50th anniversary in 2019, and as such the ET Foundation and the Aluminum Extruders Council will be planning a special celebration during ET ’20 to commemorate the occasion.

The ET Seminar, which is held just once every four years, addresses a variety of relevant and timely topics covering aluminum profile production, die design and technology, metallurgy, equipment, product applications, and more. The four-day educational event attracts a worldwide audience of upwards of 1,500 industry professionals eager to discover the latest technical information about aluminum extrusion and network with industry peers from all over the world.

The ET Seminar has gained the reputation as one of the most important industry events to attend for the attention to detail paid to developing quality programming and the atmosphere of educational and technical exchange. “The ET Seminar Committee began ramping up and preparing for this milestone event last year,” said ET Seminar Committee Chair Craig Werner, VP Extrusion Technology at Kaiser Aluminum headquartered in Foothills Ranch, California. “Nearly 40 aluminum extrusion industry professionals volunteer their time, talents and expertise to help build the ET Seminar program and ensure that it lives up to its proud reputation as the most respected and anticipated aluminum extrusion technical conference on the planet.”
