Titanium USA 2020 Cancelled

Well yet another industry trade show bites the dust as you can see in the press release further down about Titanium USA 2020 which was to be held in Chicago in October being cancelled. This means that the only remaining heat treat industry related show for 2020 that we are familiar with is Furnaces North America to be held in Louisville, Kentucky, USA starting September 30th. It is a great show and we look forward to it, however it would appear that the organisers, Metal Treating Institute are “testing the waters” on the event. Last week we as a past attendee of the show received an e mail from MTI asking if we could answer a 1 question survey about whether we would be attending the event this year. We would assume that the response will determine if this goes ahead. “As many of you may know, Illinois Governor Pritzker introduced a five-phased plan to reopen Illinois businesses.  As it reads, the plan specifically states that conventions are included in phase 5 of the plan. The conditions that must be met for the implementation of phase 5 feature either the availability of a vaccine for the COVID 19 virus or a highly effective treatment protocol, neither of which are expected to occur in the coming months. In light of these challenging circumstances, TITANIUM USA 2020 scheduled for this October in Chicago had to be cancelled.”
