Hosted by three organizations, the Metropolitan New York Coatings Association, the Philadelphia Society for Coatings Technology and the New England Society for Coatings Technology, the first ever Eastern Coatings Show will be presented at the Taj Mahal Hotel and Resort in Atlantic City, New Jersey, from April 29th to May 2nd, 2013.
A two track series of technical and educational papers will create a more profound understanding of the theory, the science, the manufacturing, and the marketing of coatings. To create an awareness of their improvement performance and functionality beyond the traditional expectation is the prime goal of the presentations.
The topics of the presentations will range from nanotechnology and the coatings world to an analysis of new hybrid molecules to controlling the molecular structure of polymers to formulated nanodispersions to dispersed neoparticles; from new developments in architectural coatings to advances in pigment technologies to meeting the challenges of both the environment and green chemistry.
The many presenters will include Robert McMullin and John Du of BYK USA; Robert A. Iezzi of RAI Technical Solutions, Inc.; Matthew Linares of Evonik-Degussa Corporation; Sudhir Achar and Leo J. Procopio of The Dow Chemical Company; Bridgette M. Budhlall of the University of Massachusetts, Lowell, MA; Jennifer Hall of Reichhold, Inc ., and Steffen Pilotek of Buhler Inc.
A Trade Show of fifty-one participants will display products and services of various types, all of them integral to the modern coatings industry. Among the exhibitors are Air Products and Chemicals, Inc.; BYK USA Inc.; BASF Corporation and forty-seven other exhibitors will also be showing their wares.
Marketing Opportunities for this Conference and Show are still available. For more information go to: www.easterncoatingsshow.com.
Exhibit space has been sold out; however, a waiting list has been established.
When asked who should attend, Bob Whiteley, an ECS committee member, said, “We expect a wide range of people in attendance at this Show due to the broad spectrum of topics covered in the technical papers as well as an opportunity to interact with suppliers in a more intimate setting. This should be relevant to those in the paints and coatings business as well as other allied industries such as printing inks, adhesives and building and construction chemicals to name a few. One emphasis of the show is a look forward to help with understanding future trends in the market place. This should appeal to everyone.”
