The ACA Applicators and Coatings Technical Groups are excited to announce our QLD Roadshow visiting Gladstone and Mackay on June 2nd and June 4th, respectively.

Day One of our roadshow, Protective Coatings – Solutions and Innovations, in Gladstone, will focus on new infrastructure to include general coatings, corrosion under insulation and fireproofing.

Day Two, Protective Coatings – Maintaining Durability, in Mackay, will be focusing on ageing infrastructure and contractors engaged in traditional methods of surface preparation and coatings.

Both of these events will feature a series of presentations from a selection of guest presenters, an exhibition from a number of our Corporate Partners in the Coatings industry as well as an outdoor demonstration of some of the latest equipment for Coatings Professionals. We’re excited to announce the full details of the event including the timetable and registration details very shortly, but in the meantime make sure to save the date.

We still have a limited number of presenter and sponsor opportunities available for both of these events and will still be accepting abstracts from potential speakers until Tuesday 06, April.
