Exhibit Space Available for ET '20

Chicago, Illinois; December 12, 2018 --The Extrusion Technology for Aluminum Profiles Foundation (ET Foundation) has announced that reservations are now being taken for exhibit space for the ET Expo at the Twelfth International Aluminum Extrusion Technology Seminar and Exposition, also known as ET ’20. The event will be held May 19-21, 2020, at the Hyatt Regency Orlando in Orlando, Florida.

The ET Seminar is global in scope and appeal, attracting up to 1,500 industry professionals from more than 50 countries. Held in conjunction with the ET Seminar, the ET Expo is the marketplace and information center where providers of extrusion industry products and services connect directly with delegates representing virtually every aspect of the aluminum extrusion business.

ET ’20 provides a platform from which the brightest minds in the industry share their most important technological breakthroughs, most of which are unveiled for the first time at ET. The educational atmosphere extends to the ET Expo, as well, where suppliers interact with delegates who are technically well versed and who are seeking answers to aluminum extrusion problems. ET Expo exhibitors must be prepared to offer answers to technical questions, as well as showcase their company’s products and services.

ET, which comes along only once every four years, offers a unique opportunity for exhibitors to reach a motivated and concentrated worldwide audience of aluminum extrusion professionals. “Since it is a technical conference, ET traditionally attracts a highly qualified audience of engineers, extrusion managers, and decision makers—buyers that don’t typically attend ordinary aluminum industry exhibitions,” said ET Seminar Committee Chairman Craig Werner, VP of Extrusion Technology for Kaiser Aluminum. “There is no better way for aluminum extrusion suppliers to reach so many prospective and current customers than at ET ’20.”

All potential exhibitors whose completed, signed contracts and payments have been received by January 31, 2019, will be assigned exhibit space first, according to the priority points system in place for previous exhibitors, and then on a first-come, first-served basis. Those interested in exhibiting can find complete details and pricing in the prospectus and contract at
