The ET Seminar will celebrate its 50th anniversary during ET '21, and as such the ET Foundation and the Aluminum Extruders Council will be planning a special celebration to commemorate the occasion. In addition to providing a forum to present cutting-edge aluminium extrusion research, ET '21 will include the ET Expo, an exhibition featuring extrusion industry suppliers, and the Extrusion Showcase, a special exhibit that highlights the best and brightest application designs featuring aluminium extrusions. Add-on educational workshops will be held before and after the event on Monday, May 10 and Friday, May 14, to provide a well-rounded learning and networking experience. Those interested in attending on of the industry workshops may add a workshop to their ET registration or register to attend only a workshop during ET '21 week.

Abstracts for technical papers currently accepted for presentation are available to review on the ET '21 website. "The ET program remains essentially intact after having to postpone the event this year due to the effects and circumstances surrounding the coronavirus pandemic," said ET Seminar Committee Chairman Craig Werner, Werner Extrusion Solutions in Libertyville, Illinois. "We are eager and determined to deliver the exceptional program that ET delegates deserve and have come to expect. We are optimistic that global events will cooperate with us in 2021 so that the world's aluminium extrusion professionals can experience the technical advancements achieved by our industry."

The ET Seminar, which is held just once every four years, addresses a variety of relevant and timely topics covering aluminium profile production, die design and technology, metallurgy, equipment, product applications, and more. The multi-day educational event attracts a worldwide audience of more than 1,300 industry professionals eager to discover the latest technical information about aluminium 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.
