We're Making it Easier for Coatings Professionals to Connect!

Sometimes, it takes a village to balance a coatings formulation. Address the unique challenges you’re facing in your work with expert guidance from the speakers, exhibitors, and peers you’ll meet at Coatings Trends & Technologies!

This is an unusual time for all of us, to say the least. As vaccines are distributed in communities across the country, some regions are impacted more than others and travel policies vary widely from company to company. We want to make CTT safe and accessible to all coatings professionals, regardless of your company’s current travel policy and your personal level of comfort or vaccination status.

The conference at the Westin Chicago Lombard on September 8-9, 2021, will be the first opportunity for many to meet with industry professionals after a year without travel. Attend educational presentations, connect with suppliers of raw materials and equipment in the tabletop exhibit area, and network with other coatings chemists, formulators, and R&D personnel to reconnect with the industry!

We understand some of our colleagues may be unable to join us at the in-person conference. The online event, taking place simultaneously, features a virtual exhibit hall to interact with tabletop exhibitors, attend educational presentations, and network with other attendees safely from the comfort of your home or office!

Fundamentals to Ensure Sustainable Growth: Strategic Insights for Mid-Decade Business

Are You Ready for 2025?

Global business leader and ChemQuest CEO, Daniel S. Murad, will outline current coatings business performance metrics, disruptive innovation and secular trends. In the anticipated post-Covid era, how will consumer behavior change the way coatings are bought and used? Learn what to expect to sharpen your focus and remain above the fray – and to ensure your operation is ready for what’s next.

Last year’s panel discussion addressed how “going digital” can impact your lab and other areas of your business, how the decision process should be made, and why companies need to embrace it if they don’t want to get left behind. This year we’ll be taking a deeper dive into digital transformation by talking with companies that are already several years into the process. What are they able to do now that they couldn’t a few years ago? How is AI changing their business? We’ll also discuss the idea of “data sharing.” Please join us for an audience-driven discussion on digital transformation in the coatings industry.
