One of the most valuable membership benefits is the opportunity to attend the GFA’s Semi-Annual meetings for priceless networking opportunities. For three days, you are immersed in productive conversations with like-minded people, easy-going suppliers, and industry experts. You’re welcomed into a safety zone where you can connect, learn, solve problems, and have fun doing it.

If you want access to top quality fabricators and suppliers, there is no better way than attending a GFA meeting. With meeting highlights including supplier expos, roundtable discussions, technical presentations, and of course, plenty of networking opportunities, attending GFA meetings is a no-brainer.

  • Converting Methods

The GFA also sponsors the bi-annual Gasketing/Converting Expo which has quickly become a “must attend” industry event with large numbers of suppliers and attendees. It’s an easy and cost-effective way to meet your best current and potential customers—and learn the latest technologies and great ideas. Held in the spring of even years, the Gasket/Converting Expo is a unique and valuable opportunity for fabricators and suppliers alike.
