Semi-Annual Meetings


Our semi-annual meetings are designed to provide maximum benefit to fabricators, suppliers, and the innovators of our industry. Twice each year, GFA members get the chance to spend three days on a deep dive into the gasket industry as they meet, network, and learn with professionals that share similar concerns, interests, and backgrounds. With highlights that include a supplier expo, technical and business presentations, discussion forums, and plenty of opportunities to network and exchange ideas, you will come away with new insights, technical understanding, and connections that will help you grow your business.

If you would like a chance to take part in any capacity, let us know!

Gasketing/Converting Expo


The Gasketing/Converting Expo (G/C Expo for short) is a biennial event presented by the GFA. It has become the highlight of our gathering schedule, and it provides a unique and valuable opportunity for fabricators and suppliers alike.

The GFA provides top-tier networking and industry-related programming year-round, but the G/C Expo lets us deliver all of that on the largest stage, with the biggest audience in a forum that attracts the best and brightest to create a valuable opportunity for everyone in the industry. Clear your calendar because the G/C Expo cannot be missed!

WHAT OUR MEMBERS ARE SAYING


The time we’ve devoted to attending GFA meetings, both virtual and in-person, has far exceeded expectations around networking, education, and opportunity development.
