MRS Spring Meetings & Exhibits

MRS is excited to announce the locations for its upcoming annual Spring Meetings, promising a series of unforgettable gatherings for materials researchers worldwide. Building on our commitment to fostering innovation and collaboration, MRS is set to host its prestigious events in Honolulu, Hawai’i, and Seattle, Washington between the years 2026 and 2030.  

In a bid to offer unparalleled experiences to our esteemed members, the upcoming Spring Meetings will alternate between these two iconic cities for the remainder of the decade. Honolulu, known for its breathtaking natural beauty and rich cultural heritage, will serve as the backdrop for our Spring Meetings in 2026, 2028, and 2030. Seattle, with its diverse metropolitan area, will host in 2027 and 2029.

MRS returns to Honolulu on the Hawai’ian Island of O’ahu after a successful and inspiring 2022 Spring Meeting. Attendees can look forward to immersing themselves in a vibrant scientific atmosphere while enjoying the history and picturesque landscape of Hawai’i’s capital city. 

Meanwhile, MRS also returns to Seattle after setting its debut visit to the Emerald City in 2024 with an upcoming trip in 2025. Nestled in the heart of the Pacific Northwest, Seattle is a city of inclusion dedicated to sustainability and promises to be an inspiring setting for exploring the latest advancements in materials research.
