SAWE President's Message

On behalf of the Society of Allied Weight Engineers I would like to personally invite you to join us for our 2021 International Virtual Tech Fair on Mass Properties, November 1st to 12th.  Once again this year, due to travel restrictions for our members, we have opted for an online experience.  Last year’s Virtual Tech Fair was very successful, and our Technical Team has put together another exciting and informative program including technical papers, sponsor presentations, standards and practices workshops, and training classes that only SAWE can offer.  We will also provide ample opportunities to connect with your peers and learn from experts in the field of mass properties.  

Registration is now open, so don’t delay!  Feel free to contact me with any questions at Damian.Yanez@sawe.org.  I look forward to seeing you there!

 

All sessions will be virtual thru a single website/portal called Tech Fair Attendee Hub.  Here's a quick video introduction/tutorial on how to get around once registered.
