The Electrocoat Conference Steering Committee has announced Orlando as the home of Electrocoat 2012. The Conference was held in Florida for many years before moving to the Midwest in 2008 to be closer to its attendee base.
Recent conference surveys have indicated that many participants wish to return to Orlando. “Orlando is beautiful in the Spring and has been a great location for the conference in the past. We are excited about our venue and look forward to a successful event in 2012," says Karen McGlothlin, executive director.
Electrocoat 2012 will take place April 11-12, 2012 at the Rosen Centre Hotel on International Drive. The conference presents comprehensive educational programming and a unique setup of exhibit rooms and table tops, where industry vendors showcase their products and services.
The Conference Steering Committee is soliciting abstracts for papers to be presented at Electrocoat 2012. Speaking at this prestigious industry event is an opportunity to showcase your company's new innovations or technology or share your experiences with Electrocoat in your facility.
The objective of the conference is to market the expansion of electrocoat technology through the education of finishing industry personnel and those interested in the technology, both as a coating application and also a “primer” of choice for many other topcoat finishes.
Conference Speakers will focus on a multitude of topics within keynote addresses and basic sessions. The program will emphasize the efficiencies of electrocoating, from its cost saving advantages through precise film build and transfer efficiency to its environmentally friendly attributes for our industry. It will also contain topics of interest to the manufacturing industry as a whole.
Your 100-200 word abstract must be submitted by Feb. 15, 2011. Written papers are a MUST and will be submitted by Jan. 5, 2012 for inclusion in the Conference Proceedings. For more information, go to electrocoat.org, or contact Karen McGlothlin at 800-579-8806.
