2019 Summit Carousel


December 3 - 5, 2019
Marco Island, Florida


The ASM Global Materials Summit is a unique opportunity to connect with visionaries in the materials community in an interactive environment about the future of the materials world. This exclusive (invitation-only) FASM and senior level event will provide a platform for our distinguished leaders to have meaningful discussions and develop tangible solutions to the biggest challenges facing the materials community.

Creating this culture of collaboration within ASM will enable leaders to embrace the trends that drive innovation, execution and, ultimately, results. Attendees will be provided with ample opportunity to network, get reacquainted with old colleagues and make new connections, in a relaxed environment.


The 2019 Summit will continue to build upon the key takeaways from the 2018 event, including:

  • ASM can and must contribute to building the bridge between materials science and data science.

  • ASM can and must be the most trusted source of common/standard materials data provided to convergent or concurrent manufacturing operations.

  • ASM Education content and certification can and must be deliverable to not only our traditional markets, but also to adjacent market segments, such as chemical, mechanical, and quality engineers entrusted with materials-centric responsibilities.


What can you expect to see during the 2019 Summit?

  • More industry-focused content, more panels, or breakout sessions with reports back to general session across a broader range of topics.

  • More focused topics

2018 Testimonials

“ASM truly has a unique opportunity amongst the professional materials societies to tap the fellows in an event like this. Both because there are a good number of fellows and because many are still professionally active - ASM should capitalize on this.”

“Best Event ever for ASM; knocked the ball out of the park.”

“All talks were excellent; focus seems on state of the art. This is somewhat redundant to keynotes at big conference. I would suggest that this group can add more to the leadership of ASM at a high level to help address critical issues facing the planet where materials can be part of the solution. IE problems to be addressed vs. where we are headed at present. Note - final panel started to address this!”

“Nicely designed event.”

“Strength is in collaboration and this event provided that platform.”
