WCISA® at the IWCS Conference™

WCISA® will be exhibiting in booth 503 of the exhibit portion of the IWCS Conference™ in Providence, RI, USA, November 10-12, 2008, www.iwcs.org. WCISA will distribute copies of the 2008 edition of the WCISA Member Directory & Product Listing, and 33 individual WCISA member Companies will also be exhibiting on their own.

WCISA will not organize a WCISA-hosted outing at IWCS for the following reasons:

The exhibits open in the afternoon on Monday, November 10, so many WCISA members will not be in town on Sunday, November 9.

WCISA Member company Cable Components Group LLC, www.cablecomponents.com, is hosting a Monday Night Football party on November 10, 2008, for all IWCS Conference attendees.

For nearly 60 years, the IWCS has organized a technical symposium in which the latest developments in wire and cable technology, materials and systems/applications have been presented. In later years, the forum has expanded to include an Executive Forum program for industry general management, and a Suppliers’ Exhibition where industry suppliers present their latest products and services.

In 2008, the IWCS Conference will include more than 100 technical papers, an exhibition with nearly 150 exhibition stands and eight Professional Development Courses. WCISA is a Supporting Associate of the IWCS Conference.
