Host City Information

History hasn’t always been easy on Cleveland…but pressure can create diamonds, and Cleveland is full of gems. Numerous entertainment and dining options provide something for everyone. It is a city that offers world-class experiences without the world-class ego.

Nearly 50% of the U.S. population is located within 500 miles of Cleveland, so it is easily accessible within a day’s drive for many in our industry. Cleveland Hopkins International Airport (CLE) is within city limits and Akron-Canton Airport (CAK) is located 50 miles from downtown Cleveland, and the average airline fare to Cleveland is about 8% less than the national average.

Cleveland has proven itself an amazing host for the International Elastomer Conference many years. Exhibitors and attendees truly enjoy Cleveland as an IEC host city, and it has always proven to be a very successful IEC host. We look forward to bringing IEC back to Cleveland this year!
