The most important ChemE event of the year is taking place this year in Salt Lake City from today through Friday, November 12, 2010. AIChE's Annual Meeting, or simply "Annual" as it is often called, draws more than 5,000 attendees comprised of students, academic professionals, and Industry professionals from across the spectrum of the chemical engineering profession.
Meeting by the Great Salt Lake
The Annual Meeting has returned to Salt Lake City, Utah after its successful event there in 2007. Plenary lectures, 12 topical conferences, more than 700 technical sessions, and multiple special events and keynote speeches will take place at the Salt Palace Convention Center and nearby Marriott and Hilton hotels.
