ORLANDO– ECOAT16 will be held February 15-17, 2016 at the Rosen Centre Hotel in Orlando, Fla. Presented by The Electrocoat Association and Products Finishing magazine, the conference seeks to support the expansion of electrocoat technology through the education of finishing industry personnel and those interested in the technology, both as a coating application and also a primer of choice for many other topcoat finishes. 

The event will feature technical presentations, concurrent workshop options, open-forum panel discussions, an exhibit room with a tabletop hospitality evening, and an industry awards luncheon.

The Conference Steering Committee is accepting abstracts for keynote and technical presentations. The program will emphasize the efficiencies of electrocoating from cost and process perspectives, as well as troubleshooting and maintaining a system to maximize performance. It will also contain topics of interest to the manufacturing industry as a whole. Presentations must be free of commercialism, and a written paper is optional. The submission deadline is April 30, 2015. Visit www.electrocoat.org to submit an abstract online.
