American Coatings Show and Conference 2020 Canceled April

The organizers of the American Coatings Show and Conference 2020 (ACS/ACC) want to thank our exhibitors, attendees and stakeholders for their enduring support following the postponement of ACS/ACC 2020, due to the COVID-19 global pandemic. We regret to inform you that, after weeks of painstaking consideration, including input from the industry, we have decided to cancel the ACS/ACC 2020. Given all relevant circumstances, including the continued unknown variables of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, corresponding changes by governments, and challenges to businesses, this was an unavoidable decision. The show will resume its biennial schedule April 5-7, 2022, at the Indiana Convention Center in Indianapolis.

The decision was difficult, as the organizers understand the important role the ACS/ACC serves in offering a platform for new products and technologies, connecting industry professionals, and educating coatings scientists. Although the 2020 installment will not proceed this year, the ACS/ACC will continue to serve as the most significant coatings show in North America when it resumes in 2022. In the meantime, ACS/ACC organizers remain committed to helping industry professionals stay up to date on the latest technology trends and innovations in coatings. Launching May 6, ACC Virtual will deliver ACC presentations through an in-depth, online learning experience. Additional information about this unique opportunity will be available in the coming weeks at www.american-coatings-show.com/virtual.

ACS/ACC organizers will continue to keep exhibitors, attendees and stakeholders informed of further details related to the cancellation. Refer to the updated Q&A section of the ACS website – www.american-coatings-show.com – for quick answers to general questions. Specific inquiries may be sent to acshow@paint.org.

Thank you for your support, patience and cooperation as we continue to work through the challenges and uncertainty arising from the COVID-19 outbreak.

The American Coatings Show and Conference is hosted by AC Media, in collaboration with the American Coatings Association and Vincentz Network. The biennial trade show and technical conference is dedicated to serving as a global business platform and educational forum for the paint and coatings industry, offering a complete spectrum of current and future trends and technologies.
