VAIL, CO - The Chemical Coaters Association International (CCAI) and the Powder Coating Institute will co-locate for their 2016 Annual Meetings from June 19-23 at The Westin Riverfront Beaver Creek located in the Vail, CO, area for networking, education and association business.

CCAI will conduct its annual social activities, committee meetings and business meetings to start the week followed by several events held in conjunction with the Powder Coating Institute, including a welcome reception, joint general sessions and a golf outing. The Powder Coating Institute will round out the week with its association committee meetings and business. This concept has been under consideration for the past two years as both the CCAI and the Powder Coating Institute boards have been looking for ways that members can reduce the number of meetings they attend each year and also reduce the costs of attending various meetings. While there is some slight deviation from past annual meetings, members will enjoy all the regular annual meeting traditions and events while gaining the opportunity to meeting new industry peers.

CCAI’s meeting will run from June 19–22, while the Powder Coating Institute’s meeting will run from June 20–23. Joint events and sessions will take place from Monday evening, June 20, through Wednesday morning, June 22. Several registration categories will be available for members so they can choose whether they wish to attend either the CCAI or the Powder Coating Institute meeting or attend both meetings.
