Designs for Success: Bretby 2005

The Ceramics Division of IOM3 and the Institute of Clay Technology will be holding the 4th Joint Seminar for the Ceramics Sector at Bretby Conference Centre, Burton on Trent, Staffordshire, UK, on 22-23 November 2005. This year, the scope of the event has been extended to include all aspects of ceramic manufacture and use. The opening Keynote Lecture will be given by Professor Denis Brosnan, Clemson University, USA.

The theme of the event is 'Designs for Success' and the programme will include:
  • Architectural design, materials selection
  • Process design, lean manufacturing, new technology
  • Energy efficiency
  • Product design
  • Innovative raw materials
  • Life cycle assessment
An exhibition will also be held at the event, giving the opportunity for the whole of the supply chain for the ceramics industry to promote their products and services. This event is the only ceramics exhibition to be held in Europe this year and so it presents a unique opportunity for the UK ceramics community.
