Ask the Expert


Visitors to the exhibition floor have a unique opportunity to get their questions answered in a one-on-one setting with esteemed industry veterans. This group of select experts from the ferrous and nonferrous segments are available to all comers in a sort of open house setting at WAI’s Ask the Expert kiosk in the center of the show floor. Attendees are invited to drop by during these “office hours” for these respected professionals to ask questions, seek advice, and generally tap in to the decades of experience and knowledge these distinguished industry figures have to offer. No appointment necessary.
