LAKEWOOD RANCH, FL – The Chemical Coaters Association International (CCAI) and the Powder Coating Institute announced that they are once again co-locating their 2019 annual meetings to be held June 16-20, 2019, at the Sonesta Resort on Hilton Head Island, South Carolina. The meetings always provide significant industry education and presentations that have proven to all association members both professionally and personally.

     CCAI will conduct its annual social activities, committee work and business meetings to start the week, followed by presentations and 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 and business meetings and its Hall of Fame Banquet. This is the third year the associations have co-located. This concept allows members to reduce the number of meetings they attend each year and lower the costs of attending various meetings. Members will enjoy all the regular annual meeting traditions and events while gaining the opportunity to meet new industry peers.

CCAI’s meeting will run from June 16-19 while the Powder Coating Institute’s meeting will run from June 18-20. Joint events and sessions will take place from Monday evening, June 16, through Wednesday morning, June 19. Several registration categories will be available, allowing members to attend one or both meetings.

Complete registration information and the schedule of events will be available in February 2019.
