The 5th Annual Myrtle Beach Technical Conference is Oct 2-4, 2013 and features technical and informational sessions, with this year's theme: "The Race To The Finish." Also included are fun activities for all attendees.

Bob Laferriere, Palmetto Branch President: It truly is a “Race to the Finish”. We intend on presenting you the latest in regulatory issues, technological developments and opportunities to help you win your race to success. The past several years have been challenging for the metal finishing industry. Environmental regulations are quickly becoming more stringent and today’s economic landscape leaves very little room for 2nd place. This AESF conference is a critical learning component in keeping your business in the front of the pack. Please join us at beautiful Myrtle Beach for a few days of hearing from our expert speakers and enjoying the social events we have put together for you. Hope to see you there for this great networking opportunity.
