The International ThermProcess Summit Americas (ITPS Americas) is set for 10-12 August 2016 at the Loews Chicago Hotel in downtown Chicago, IL, USA. Planning is well underway.

We’re very pleased to offer this outstanding event for executive management within the thermal processing industry in the Americas. The industry needs this type of leadership event in the Americas. With the high quality speakers and topics on our agenda, we know this will be a very valuable event for executives from North to Central and South America.

The programme will begin with a Welcome Reception on Wednesday evening, 10 August; followed by two days of presentations; a tabletop exhibition and a Taste of Chicago dinner. The networking opportunities will be plentiful with the programme content having mass appeal. Here’s a sneak peek at the programming in development: Policies impacting thermal processes like energy efficiencies, emissions & environmental (climate change), election overview on how the results could impact our business and risk management.

A further issue is technological advancements & their impact on the thermal process industries like the future of electrical power and emerging electric technologies, Internet of Things and future trends in thermal process heating. Also on the agenda will be economic updates from around the world like NAFTA, South America, Global – China, Europe, India. And for sure there are market segment trends we will have a look on.
