The FINISHING Pavilion at FABTECH 2013 in Chicago is officially sold out! That's according to the Chemical Coaters Association International, chief organizer of the Finishing Pavilion. With more than two months from the opening of the show floor, CCAI has packed the FINISHING Pavilion with 168 exhibiting companies that will bring countless products, services, innovative ideas and equipment to finishers interested in all finishing technologies.

“We are thrilled that we have sold out our entire FINISHING Pavilion floor space,” said Anne Goyer, CCAI executive director. “Our growth is an indication that this is where the finishing industry now comes together every Fall. We look forward to welcoming everyone to CCAI’s FINISHING Pavilion in November." 

There, Goyer notes, attendees will find more companies providing more finishing products and services than any other event in North America. In only its fourth year, CCAI has proven that the FINISHING PAVILION at FABTECH is the premier event for industrial finishers!

If your job touches any part of the industrial manufacturing process, CCAI is encouraging finishers to make plans now to attend FABTECH 2013 in Chicago, Nov. 18-21 at McCormick Place Convention Center. FABTECH offers a 360° view of the entire manufacturing process from start to finish. Attendees will see a wide variety of new products and services along with live demonstrations and valuable information to help improve their finishing operations.
