SSPC 2001 Set for November in Atlanta

Wednesday, August 08, 2001
Scheduled to be held November 11 - 15, 2001 at the Georgia World Congress Center, Atlanta, Ga., SSPC 2001 (The Society for Protective Coatings) is the conference and exhibition for the protective coatings industry. While the marine business is not the solitary focus of the event, as SSPC encompasses a wide variety of industries and applications, the industry is well represented and informed at the event.

Primarily, the event attracts Industrial Painting Contractors; Public and Private Facility Owners; Metal Fabricators; Specifying Engineers; Architects; Industry Consultants; and Industry Suppliers.

"I learn something new at every SSPC conference," Robert R. Hafer, Paint General Foreman, Newport News Shipbuilding, is quoted as saying. "The wide mix of companies, contractors, and suppliers help you pick up little things that may make your operations more effective. Everyone at the conference is open and ready to help. The contacts you make may not help you today, but I have found that before the year is out you're calling on your new-found SSPC members."

Attendees are encouraged to select from a wide variety of topics to develop their own combination of technical presentations, workshops, and panel discussions from four topic tracks: Surface Preparation, Coatings and Application, Project Management, and Business Strategies. In addition, SSPC committee meetings, various special meetings, and valuable networking opportunities remain an important part of the SSPC 2001 program. SSPC is the only non-profit association focused on the protection and preservation of steel, concrete, and other industrial and marine structures and surfaces. SSPC is the leading source of information on surface preparation, coating selection, coating application, environmental regulations, and health and safety issues.
