MIM2021 Moved to Virtual Conference

Due to continued concerns regarding the global COVID-19 pandemic, the MIM2021 International Conference on Injection Molding of Metals, Ceramics and Carbides that was to be held February 22-24, 2021 in West Palm Beach, Florida, will now be held virtually.  West Palm Beach will host the MIM2022 conference.  

“It is disappointing that the powder metallurgy industry will miss another opportunity to meet in person due to COVID-19,” reflected James P. Adams, MPIF Executive Director/CEO. “Our industry desires to meet, network, and discuss ongoing R&D to advance the technology.  However, the health and safety of our industry is paramount, so MIM2021 will be held as a virtual conference.”
