The Powder Coating Institute has announced plans for Coating 2008, a multiple finishing technologies conference and exhibition to be held September 23-25, 2008, at the Indiana Convention Center, Indianapolis.

Planning for the Coating 2008 conference and trade show will be addressed by the PCI trade show committee, the board of directors and PCI staff in the next few months. More information will be circulated throughout the industry as it is developed.
