2006 International Sandwich Symposium Announced

27 January 2006

The 2006 International Sandwich Symposium will be held in the Grand Hyatt in Seattle, Washington, USA on April 20th, the main theme being Coring Hull Bottoms.

This theme was chosen to reflect the fact that more and more boat builders around the world are switching to fully-cored hulls, often in conjunction with a move to closed moulding techniques such as infusion. To review all aspects of the subject the symposium organizers have gathered together an international panel of independent speakers who can talk with authority on design, engineering, process methodology, construction and marketing. The aim is to dispel the myths, examine the benefits, consider the processing options, review actual applications and discuss the marketing advantages of the concept.

The Symposium is sponsored by core materials manufacturer DIAB.
