It’s an exciting time to be in the aluminum industry. Auto makers are going full speed ahead with integration of aluminum bodies in the next generation of popular vehicles. Aluminum is involved in construction, reconstruction, and other infrastructure projects around the world. Even consumer interest in the aluminum recycling market is growing, leading to more efficient aluminum production that’s good for the environment.
The road ahead for our industry is an exciting one, and it’s no surprise that aluminum professionals are looking forward to the industry’s annual convention. Aluminum Week 2012 will be held from Monday, October 15 to Thursday, October 19 in downtown Chicago at the Renaissance Chicago Downtown.
As aluminum is increasing its presence for auto manufacturers, several speakers will explore this topic from a variety of perspectives. This includes, David Strickland, Administrator of the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration; Mitch Bainwol, President & CEO of the Alliance of Automobile Manufacturers; and Michael Robinet, Managing Director of IHS Automotive Consulting.
Hosted by the Aluminum Association, the Aluminum Extruders Council, and the Aluminum Anodizers Council, registration is now open for Aluminum Week 2012. For more information or to register, visit the official registration page.
