The Technical Programme has now been published by organisers of the 2014 World Congress on Powder Metallurgy & Particulate Materials, Orlando, USA, May 18 – 22, 2014.
The 2014 World Congress on Powder Metallurgy & Particulate Materials is organised by the Metal Powder Industries Federation (MPIF) and APMI International. The conference includes oral and poster presentations along with a series of Special Interest Seminars.
The conference will open with a Keynote Presentation by Bob Lutz, Former Vice Chairman, General Motors Corporation, and author of “Car Guys vs. Bean Counters” and “Icons and Idiots”. Bob Lutz is one of the most experienced and high- profile auto executives in the world. Having been in the business for almost 50 years, he has left an indelible mark on all three of the big US automakers, most recently GM, where he reinvigorated its previously undistinguished vehicle lineup.
Lutz is the highest-profile guest speaker to speak at an MPIF conference, and his presentation and message should resonate with all in the PM industry.
There will also be a major exhibition at PM2014, with some 175 booths showcasing leading suppliers of PM and particulate materials processing equipment, powders, products and additive manufacturing.
