Results of a recent survey conducted by the National Association for Surface Finishing (NASF) revealed 2014 SUR/FIN Manufacturing and Technology Conference attendees found significant added value in taking their conference participation to the trade show floor.
Overall, 98 percent of SUR/FIN’s nearly 1,200 surveyed attendees visited the trade show to network and check out the latest innovations and technologies in the industry. In fact, an average of 60 percent of 2014 participant’s time was spent connecting with exhibitors on the trade show floor.
SUR/FIN organizers attribute the trade show’s rising success to their attention to strengthening the quality of the experience for both exhibitors and attendees.
“Our commitment to quality is the foundation behind the success of the show,“ said 2015 SUR/FIN Conference Chairman, Mark Norton of Grand Rapids-based Walgren Company. “Our goal has always been, and continues to be, producing the industry’s most prominent event for industrial finishing professionals looking to network with top industry analysts, thought leaders and product experts.”
As a result, this year’s SUR/FIN Conference and Trade Show enjoyed a strong boost in image. Survey results show 90 percent of attendees recommend SUR/FIN to their peers and partners in the industry.
Early statistics for SUR/FIN 2015 confirm this positive feedback. Over 85 percent of exhibit space is already sold, and exhibit reservations are filling up fast. For more information and to reserve exhibit space, visit nasfsurfin.com.
