The second edition of the Eastern Coatings Show will be held next year from May 15 to 17. The location is Harrah’s Resort in Atlantic City, NJ (pictured). Organizers say the 2017 edition has been expanded to include panel discussions, and two tracks featuring presentation of over 40 technical papers. The exhibit space has been increased over the last show, to allow for 150 exhibitors. The show is being promoted as a platform to meet with raw material, packaging or equipment suppliers as well as to attend technical presentations and panel discussions on the latest technologies in the coatings industry. It is hosted by the Philadelphia Society for Coatings Technology, the New England Society for Coatings Technology and the Metropolitan New York Coatings Association.
