The Powder Coating Institute (PCI) has announced that the Powder Coating 2019 Technical Conference and Tabletop Exhibition will be held April 1 – 4, 2019. The location is the Renaissance Orlando at SeaWorld, Orlando, FL.  “We are very excited about the location selected for PCI’s Powder Coating 2019, the Renaissance Orlando at SeaWorld,” said PCI’s executive director, Trena Benson.  “Following the very positive comments about Powder Coating 2018 and the increased attendance, we are enthusiastic about getting to work on PCI’s next technical conference. “Continuing to deliver outstanding education to the powder coating industry is a top priority for us.  We hope everyone will mark their calendars now and plan to join us next year for another great conference at a terrific location.” The Renaissance Orlando at SeaWorld PCI says, is an easy fly-in destination with service from across the US and around the world. It is located near many theme parks and restaurants in the Orlando area.     The four-day event will kick off with PCI’s popular Powder Coating 101: Basic Essentials Workshop, to be held April 1 and 2. The workshop includes a comprehensive agenda that covers all the basics of powder coating operations. It is conducted by PCI member company experts in a non-commercial setting.  Workshop attendees will enjoy a discount when registering for the technical conference and exhibition as well.  The PCI Technical Conference and Tabletop Exhibition will immediately follow the Powder Coating 101 Workshop on Wednesday, April 3 through Thursday, April 4.  Complete with general sessions and concurrent technical programming, attendees will have access to a variety of powder coating information as well as personal interaction with suppliers. There will also be social activities and ample networking time with tabletop exhibitors and speakers. The tabletop display area will feature powder coating manufacturers, powder coating application equipment companies, system houses, chemical suppliers and various services that support the powder coating industry.  Tabletops and sponsorship opportunities will be available beginning in July after last year’s sponsors and exhibitors have the opportunity to select first.
