Change is inevitable in the workforce, and I am proud to say that the welding community was swift and efficient in its response to a difficult situation.”

Attendees will be able to participate in a live virtual expo with exhibits from event sponsors, allowing viewers to connect with suppliers as you would during normal live events.

CWB Group says its virtual events have gained more participation and engagement than any previous years.

At this year’s event, attendees will:

  • Learn about the most recent technology updates
  • Attend expert speaker sessions
  • Support industry suppliers in the expo pavilion
