COATING EAST 2009, the second innovative regional conference & trade show to be held in 2009 Sept. 30–Oct. 1 at the Gaylord Opryland Resort in Nashville, Tenn. Following the success of COATING West in Las Vegas this past March, COATING EAST is designed to be a cost-effective, two-day conference & exhibition that provides outstanding educational opportunities to finishers on the East Coast.

The technical conference features a wide array of sessions covering everything from emerging pretreatment technologies to lean manufacturing for liquid coating technologies; corrosion testing to marketing your business in a tough economy; and small to mid-size volume powder coating to determining if your finishing system uses too much energy to survive. A total of 25 conference sessions from 43 industry experts will deliver timely and valuable information that will help finishers improve their operations.
