FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
ET '20 Postponed Due to Coronavirus Threat
March 13, 2020; Chicago, Illinois -- The Aluminum Extruders Council (AEC), the organizer of the Twelfth International Aluminum Technology Seminar & Exposition – ET ’20, has been closely monitoring the COVID-19 outbreak and the information and direction issued by the World Health Organization (“WHO”), U.S. Center for Disease Control (“CDC”) and various states, including the State of Florida, in handling this crisis and addressing the potential health risks to our attendees and employees. As we know, the WHO declared the novel coronavirus disease a global pandemic on Wednesday, March 11, 2020. In addition, President Trump acted this week to ban incoming European travelers, and the CDC (as well as other authorities) advise against large gatherings. In addition, we recently have been informed that a significant number of ET’20 attendees, speakers, and exhibitors are prevented from traveling to the Event due to travel bans imposed by their employers and countries.
The Aluminum Extruders Council (AEC) is the trade association representing approximately 75-percent of North American aluminum extrusion production. AEC committed to bringing comprehensive information about extrusion's characteristics, applications, environmental benefits, design and technology to users, product designers, engineers and the academic community. Further, AEC is focused on enhancing the ability of its members to meet the emerging demands of the market through knowledge sharing and best practices.
