About this Conference

Join us as we kick off the International Magnesium Association’s (IMA) 2018 World Magnesium Conference in New Orleans, Louisiana! IMA’s annual conference offers one-of-a-kind networking opportunities, educational collaborations and unique sessions tailored exclusively for those in the magnesium industry! This annual event provides organizations and individuals the unique opportunity to showcase their services to the largest audience of in-house magnesium professionals in the industry. With over 100 forward-thinking influential leaders in attendance last year, IMA expects to exceed those numbers in New Orleans. Again this year, we will present a bilingual presentation conference (Chinese and English) with translating services available for some technical sessions. Don’t miss the best opportunity for new business, new connections and new learning. Register today!

Cancellation Policy
Written cancellation notice must be received via fax, mail, or email by March 14, 2018, to receive a 50% refund. No refunds will be given after this date. If IMA cannot hold the conference due to acts of God, war, government regulations, disaster, strikes, civil disorder, or curtailment of transportation facilitating other emergencies making it inadvisable, illegal, or impossible to provide the facilities or to hold the meeting, each prepaid registrant/exhibitor will receive a copy of the conference handouts and any other materials that would have been distributed. Fixed conference expenses will be paid from the pre-registration funds. Remaining funds will be refunded to pre-registrants/exhibitors. IMA is not responsible for any other costs incurred by pre-registrants/exhibitors in connection with the conference.

IMA Enforced Exhibiting Policies
Early Departure Penalty: $500 USD
To enhance the experience of attendees in the exhibit hall, IMA requires that all exhibit booths must remain fully set up and attended by a company representative until the specified tear-down time. To assist in enforcing this policy, IMA has instituted an early departure fee of $500 that will be assessed to any company that begins to dismantle its booth or leaves its booth unattended before the official tear-down time denoted in the exhibitor prospectus. Payment of this fee will be required before the company is allowed to register for a booth space at the following annual conference and the company will be placed at the bottom of the list for booth assignments at the next annual conference. IMA is dedicated to making our attendee and exhibitor experience enjoyable and educational at all times. Thank you for your continued support and cooperation on this matter.
