A Special Message from Heat Treat Today publisher, Doug Glenn.



There are heat treat trade shows; then there is ITPS — the International ThermProcess Summit — being held this year, for only the second time in the USA, in Atlanta, Georgia, at the Intercontinental Hotel in Buckhead. This event is the premiere event for forward-thinking heat treat executives whether they be from manufacturers with in-house heat treat, from a contract heat treat shop, or from a supplier to the heat treat industry. This event is not so much an equipment and process event as it is a strategic planning event for high-level heat treat department heads or C-suite dwellers.

It would be good to register today and get to Atlanta ASAP if you have not done so already. Click here to register or go to Or you can just show up on-site. I’m sure they’ll let you in!

High-level, strategic planning is what this mostly-conference-with-some-table-top-exhibit event is all about.

Covey talks about taking time to “sharpen the saw” — this event is a saw-sharpening moment. You might run into some other like-minded people in organizations that would be advantageous for you to know — customers, competitors, vendors.

The event is organized by the Industrial Heating Equipment Association (, and they are responsible for the high-level talks. Take a look at some of the excellent presentations.

These are just six of the more than 20 speakers who will be presenting at this event — ALL worth hearing.

Both Industrial Heating magazine and Heat Treat Today are media sponsors.

It’s time to invest in some strategic planning time with your top executives. If you haven’t done so already, consider taking time to make a visit to Buckhead.

Hope to see you there.
