The annual Global Gypsum Conference is well-known around the world as the largest meeting of gypsum professionals and as the must-attend gypsum event. The conference in 2015 will meet in the the Deep South of the USA - currently enjoying a post-recession building boom - and will appeal to gypsum and wallboard producers from around the globe.
The USA and Canada make up around half of the world's wallboard capacity - and half of its demand - and following the 'Great Recession' of 2007-2013' the Global Gypsum Conference is pleased to return to what is now one of the fastest-growing markets in the world. New Orleans is strategically located and easy to access for all North Americans, as well as for visitors from Central and South America. For visitors from further afield, New Orleans will welcome you with open arms! The 15th Global Gypsum Conference, Exhibition and Awards is expected to be one of the largest ever staged, and will offer participants many opportunities for networking and business.
