Omaha Marriott Downtown - October 8-10, 2024

The AGAs annual technical conference, TechForum, offers technical presentations and discussion topics common to the galvanizing process, and is an excellent opportunity for peers to meet and exchange ideas on both a business and social level. Don't miss this three-day event featuring industry speakers, opportunities for peer discussion, networking events, MarketPlace exhibits, and two galvanizing plant tours.

TechForum features a conference program of papers based on a focused topic or "theme" within the hot-dip galvanizing process. The TechForum "theme" rotates every five years. Presentations will include technological advancements, studies, lessons Learned, EHS, quality, optimization, and plant management topics within the year's theme. The theme for 2024 will be Pre-Treatment.

Included in the technical sessions throughout the week will be a virtual tour of Sabre Industries featuring state-of-the-art galvanizing facility located in Sioux City, IA. Plus, discussion groups on Pre-Treatment where AGA members can learn from their peers and exchange ideas.
