Exhibitor Information

POWDERMET2018 offers exhibitors an opportunity to meet with their customers during the course of the three-day conference, both in the hall and during conference meals and special events.

The exhibitors have SPOKEN and MPIF is LISTENING! In 2018, exhibitors will see even MORE non-compete time in the exhibit hall. We will also continue to take steps to DRIVE traffic to the Exhibit Hall and to YOUR booth.

In 2018, we will be bringing back the Exhibitor Game Cards, special displays set-up in the hall and the AM/PM Café—where food and beverages will be displayed for attendees (including dessert after the two luncheons).

MPIF wants to give you the opportunity to MEET new buyers and REINFORCE your existing relationships. Make plans today to join us at North America's Only Global PM Conference! Exhibiting at POWDERMET is the only way to reach the entire PM industry under one room.
