Sector-Leading Advanced Materials Conference Program Featuring Expert Speakers Announced

Europe’s leading event for the advanced materials industry, The Advanced Materials Show, is coming to North America, New Jersey on October 13 – 14 2021. The event, which is co-located with The Nanotechnology Show has released details of its conference program for 2021 featuring exclusive insight and an industry-leading speaker faculty forum.

The two-track exhibition and conference is free-to-attend and will showcase both advanced materials and nanotechnology/materials within a range of applications, bringing together innovation and industrialization for key applications including chemicals, coatings, batteries and energy storage, renewables, medical devices, oil and gas, electronics, automotive and aerospace.

The conference gathers both established brands and exciting pioneers involved in the design and development of innovative materials products and processes. This is a unique opportunity to hear from industry-leading speakers including end users, large scale materials manufacturers and the whole supply chain discussing the materials and technology in use today, and the barriers and opportunities in future materials development. Expect lively discussions and insightful talks on how to find, produce and implement the best performing materials in a way that is efficient, economical, profitable and sustainable.

On day one (October 13th) the conference will open with a keynote session, ‘Building a Sustainable ‘New Normal’ with Advanced Materials Innovation ’. Preeti Kamakoti, Technology Lead – Data Led Materials R&D, ExxonMobil, David Hartick, Director of Innovation, Huntsman Advanced Materials, Mano Manoharan, Chief Technologist – Industrialization, GE are teaming up in a lively session to explore how advanced materials and nanotechnology businesses and their customers are addressing how materials supply and development issues, laid bare by the pandemic, have now started to be redressed, favoring those businesses open to sustainable models and digital transformation. This session will get to grips with these new challenges and outline the most promising possibilities for those with a stake in the success of advanced materials.

The following keynote session focuses on ‘What is Needed to Reach the Tipping Point for Nanotechnology? Landon Mertz, CEO, Cerion Nanomaterials, Steve Wilcenski, CEO, BNNano and Dr Richard Collins: Principal Analyst, IDTechEx. This session will outline both the opportunities and barriers for nanotechnology and nanomaterial uptake, with leaders discussing industry-wide challenges in investment, costs, manufacturing capabilities, complexity, sustainability and application.

Attendees will come away from this event understanding the most pressing challenges and potentially exciting solutions for the whole supply chain and through interactive panel discussions and dedicated Q&A opportunities, share their own insight with peers on how the industry can look to stimulate growth and development – profiting the sector, its customers, and the planet.

Olivia Ryan-Hill, Conference Director says “After a challenging 18-month period with mixed fortunes across the industry, our audiences and speakers have shown huge enthusiasm for rejoining the conversation on driving advanced materials and nanotechnology forward. This is a unique and pivotal moment to gather and create real change, growth, and improvement simultaneously. With constructive ideas on how to harness the renewed and widespread enthusiasm for sustainability, the industry can seek to improve the way that new materials and technologies are designed, developed, manufactured and used – I can’t wait to see the outcome from these conversations.”
