What: The Western Coatings Symposium 2017 (WCS 2017), a biennial, western United States and Canada Coatings Industry Conference and Trade Show.
When: October 15-18, 2017
Where: Las Vegas, Nevada.
The WCS Board and I would like to extend our heartfelt thanks to everyone who attended and supported the 32nd Biennial Western Coatings Symposium and Show. We were so thrilled at the great response to the show. We registered over 1100 attendees, and when including exhibitors and speakers, our overall attendance was over 1360 people. That is simply tremendous, and calculates out to 15% growth over 2013 and 25% growth over 2011.
Once again, the 32nd Western Coatings Symposium, held in Las Vegas, Nevada, October 25-28, 2015, featured an outstanding lineup of technical presentations and speakers. The technical presentations can be viewed here, or tracks, days and times for all sessions can also be viewed or downloaded here:
