With more than six months until FABTECH opens its doors in November at Chicago’s McCormick Place, CCAI’s Finishing Pavilion is now the largest yet since CCAI became a partner in the event in 2010. 
“We are thrilled to have grown so much,” states CCAI Executive Director Anne Goyer. “Our growth has been twofold. Past exhibitors are taking larger booths and we are signing up new exhibitors that haven’t been in the Finishing Pavilion before. It’s exciting because it brings a wide variety of finishing technologies to show goers. We’ve already sold more space than any past shows and we expect both our total exhibit space and number of exhibitors to exceed past shows by 15-20%. We are far ahead of previous years at this point in time, making our Pavilion the largest show for industrial finishers in the U.S.”
In addition to the Finishing Pavilion expansion, the entire FABTECH show will be the largest ever. As some areas of the show floor have already sold out, the North hall has been expanded to add more space. This year’s promotion campaign speaks to the heart of the show and conference: FABTECH gives attendees a 360 view of the most innovative technology & processes. CCAI is happy to have added finishing to bring the event full circle. 
To view the FABTECH floor plan, go to www.fabtechexpo.com. Click on Exhibit/Reserve Space and then "View Floorplan." CCAI’s Finishing Pavilion is located in the South Hall. Scroll to the lower part of the floor plan to the Finishing area. Booths shaded in blue are available. 
Additionally, attendees can now register for the show and make hotel reservations at www.fabtechexpo.com. The CCAI Finishing Conference is in final development and will be announced early in the summer. It will once again feature presentations on everything from liquid finishing to powder coating; electrocoating to pretreatment, systems, curing and more.
