AFS FiltCon 2023 Registration Open

A primary mission of the American Filtration & Separations Society (AFS) is to provide a forum for the exchange of information among engineers, scientists and technologists from all areas of our industry. One initiative that upholds this mission especially well is our upcoming annual conference, FiltCon 2023.

FiltCon 2023 will be held at the Galt House Hotel in Louisville, KY, May 1-3. Registration is now open.
