Now in its 31st year, Products Finishing magazine's Electroless Nickel Conference was started to help finishers discover EN, a powerful tool that offers abrasion resistance, corrosion protection, low surface friction and complete coverage of intricate cavities.
Building on its historic past and adding new twists, EN 2010 will take place Nov. 8-9 in a new destination—Charleston SC—with an updated format and more interaction between attendees and expert presenters.
Following the opening morning sessions, Palm International's Bill Fields helps kick off Monday's events with a lunch presentation on the state of the electroless nickel industry that will give us a snapshot of where things are today.
Monday's afternoon educational sessions will be followed by a panel of experts discussion called 'Cocktails and Questions,' a unique spin on a typical panel discussion and Q&A, where there will be cocktails for conference attendees while they can ask any questions related to the topics discussed by our industry experts in the fundamentals program.
Tuesday's program includes morning educational sessions, followed by the keynote address by Dr. Donna Lee Jones from the U. S. Environmental Protection Agency on the EPA's new rule concerning electroless nickel (see accompanying story).
Tuesday's luncheon will be a 'Roundtables with Industry Experts,' and following the afternoon sessions, a networking reception will be held from 5-7 p.m. to allow attendees to mingle with their peers and talk to the experts they heard speak during the two day immersion in the world of electroless nickel.
