OTTAWA, Ontario - The Canadian Paint and Coatings Association (CPCA) has moved the date of its Annual Conference and Annual General Meeting to the spring. It will take place this year on May 27-29, 2015 at the Pillar and Post Inn & Spa in Niagara-on-the-Lake.

The conference will also feature a new format that is as robust, but more compressed than in the previous years to accommodate busy schedules. The agenda will still include the popular business sessions that update attendees on the latest trends, opportunities and challenges facing the Canadian paint and coatings industry, as well as keynote speakers, a welcome reception and the annual Chair’s Gala Dinner.

“Moving our annual conference to the spring isn’t the only change this year – we’re also offering a streamlined and value-added program,” says Gary LeRoux, CPCA’s President. “The beautiful setting of Niagara-on-the-Lake is an excellent gathering place for members of our industry to reflect on the opportunities and challenges facing the paint and coatings sector while looking towards the future.”

Once again, the association will recognize several individuals for their outstanding contributions to the Canadian paint and coatings industry with awards presented during the Chair’s Gala Dinner.
