All Forge Fair 2017 exhibitors are eligible to discuss their featured products, technologies and services as part of the exhibitor presentation program. The 25-minute exhibitor presentations are held in meeting rooms while the exhibit hall is closed, so exhibitors do not miss any customers. A total of 60 exhibitor presentation slots are available for Forge Fair 2017 on a first-come, first-served basis. Handouts or technical papers are encouraged. To host a presentation, simply check the exhibitor presentation box on the exhibitor contract. All exhibitor presentations will be held April 4–6. Paper titles and abstracts must be submitted to Mike DiLorenzo ([email protected]) by Oct. 31, 2016.
