- Western Coating Societies
The 36th Biennial Western Coatings Symposium & Show. Call for student posters. Call for technical presentations
The 36th Western Coatings Symposium is under way.
WCS is a trade and regional conference that serves primarily the Western USA and Canada. Our goal is to offer educational and networking opportunities for technical people involved in the development, manufacturing, and maintenance of coatings.
The show will include a three-day technical programme, a tabletop exhibition and opportunities to socialize and network.
Dr. Greg Williams, Section Manager, Applied Research.
The WCS is an amazing show that features some of the most technical content in the industry. The organizers have done a great job organizing a high-quality agenda that highlights the latest innovations in coatings. The trade show is open during technical sections so there is no need for you to choose between technical presentations and the trade show. This is a wonderful idea. The show is an essential event for everyone in the coatings industry, as it offers a great forum for education and networking.
As Director of Procurement at Kelly-Moore Paint, attending the WCS is an essential part of my job. It offers a great opportunity for business networking in a casual atmosphere. The event is also based on a meticulously planned schedule.
WCS in Las Vegas is my favourite of all the trade shows and industry events. WCS allows me to connect with a wider world and brings new technologies and innovations that I would not find at larger symposiums. It is also much more cost-effective and convenient. WCS has been a huge benefit to our laboratory staff.
