FABTECH is where the industry comes together to see what’s now, what’s new and what’s next. It’s where connections are made and where deals get done. See cutting-edge exhibits, learn from expert-led education, network with peers and more, Nov. 6-8 at the Georgia World Congress Center in downtown Atlanta.
As they’ve done for eight years, CCAI hosts the FINISHING PAVILLION, the most popular part of FABTECH for powder coaters and finishers. The FINISHING PAVILLION is packed with suppliers that will bring countless products, services, innovative ideas and equipment to attendees interested in all aspects of the finishing industry.
With a short time to go until the show opens its doors, the FINISHING Pavilion at FABTECH 2018 is sold out with nearly 200 exhibitors. 35,000 attendees are expected to visit the show floor that covers over 650,000 net square feet of exhibit space.
Finalizing plans to attend FABTECH now is critical to ensure you get the best hotels at the best rates, secure reasonable airfare to Atlanta, and reserve seats in the finishing education sessions.
Visitors are encouraged to attend FABTECH for multiple days to take advantage of everything the event has to offer. “You can’t explore the show floor, participate in education sessions and attend our special events in one day,” says CCAI Executive Director Anne Goyer. “There are so many things to see and do at FABTECH that you need two or three days to visit with exhibitors, attend sessions that are important to you and enjoy networking events that allow you to meet other attendees.”
For those who have already registered for the show, you can go back into your registration and add education sessions and use the promotion code when doing so.
This offer is ONLY available for CCAI’s FINISHING sessions. Take time to review all the FINISHING sessions and presentation descriptions on the FABTECH website under EDUCATION. You can also review all the FINISHING sessions on CCAI’s website: www.ccaiweb.com.
SPECIAL FINISHING EVENTS
2018 will mark the second year of CCAI’s FAB to FINISH Production Experience.
The program offers FABTECH attendees the opportunity to experience part production from fabrication through finishing on the exhibit floor. Participants will pick up their part in the fabrication portion of the show and will be directed to exhibitors in the FINISHING PAVILLION where the parts will be pretreated, coated and cured for attendees to take back to their plant or office.
On Wednesday, November 7, CCAI will host a Women in Finishing reception. The reception will be held in the CCAI booth (B4700) at 4:00 PM and is an opportunity for women in the finishing industry to network and socialize with their peers.
“We have expanded this program and are excited to share additional Women in Finishing events with attendees,” noted Women in Finishing manager, Sheila LaMothe. “Our response to this program has been so positive that offering more activities for this group is a natural progression.”
