Corcoran Expositions has created a new agreement to provide exhibit and sponsorship management for the TMS Annual Meeting and Exhibition hosted by The Minerals, Metals & Materials Society.

Corcoran Expositions has produced 700-plus conventions in 100 cities over the past 26 years.

In service of the global minerals, metals, and materials industries, we at TMS believe that our new collaboration with Corcoran represents an opportunity to take our exhibition to another level for the greater benefit of the thousands of professional scientists and engineers that we represent."

Exhibit and sponsorship management services with begin with the 2018 show, taking place in Phoenix.

“TMS has a rich 146-year history and continues to evolve with its member base and changing technologies. It is exciting to have a dynamic client with such an extensive reach in the scientific and engineering communities,” says Carly DiVito, longtime Corcoran show manager who will oversee the exhibit sales and management program for TMS. “We at Corcoran are looking forward to a great partnership.”
