American Plating and Power’s Steve Smith, chairman of the SUR/FIN organizing committee, says the event will be June 15-17 at the Georgia World Congress Center in Atlanta.

“We had a record-breaking event in Chicago last year and we believe it will only grow stronger in Atlanta,” he says. “It’s a great city that is regionally close to a lot of finishing operations and should be very easy to get to for most people.”

More than 200 exhibitors displayed at the event this past year, bringing the latest technology and products on the electroplating and anodizing market. In addition, the technical conference also had record numbers and should be even larger in 2020. More than 80 technical topics related to finishing were presented at the show last year, and the NASF Technical Advisory Committee is currently reviewing proposals for the 2020 event.

Registration for the event will open in February. Full conference registration includes all conference sessions, online conference proceedings, exhibit hall entry for all days, complimentary keynote sessions, Plating Boot Camp sessions, a networking reception and the official show directory.
