Western Coatings Symposium

October 20, 2019 - October 23, 2019

Held every two years, the Western Coatings Symposium and Show serves the people and businesses that formulate and manufacture coatings in Western USA and Canada.  Attendees can expect to come away from our show with a greater knowledge of the newest technical trends and advancements in coatings formulating, as well as an expanded network of key technical contacts in the industry.The Western Coatings Symposium and Show is the main income-generating vehicle for  the LASCT, PNWSCT, GGSCT and ASCT.  The primary mandate of these four organizations is to:
  • provide educational and networking opportunities for our members
  • award scholarships/grants to students and academic institutions predominantly focused on coatings research or related fields of study.

Justify Your Attendance

Justify Your Attendance to yourself or your boss!

To our knowledge, you won’t find better value for money at any other North American coatings-related show. Here are some highlights:

  • Registration fees are kept low so that the show remains accessible to both large and small companies. Compare our fees to any other trade show of comparable size and scope, and you’ll be pleasantly surprised!
  • The technical program never overlaps with trade-show hours. Attendees can attend both the talks and the exhibits without missing out on anything.
  • Attendees are exposed to three days of cutting-edge technical information and trends.
  • Multiple networking opportunities with technical and business colleagues are provided.
  • Complimentary lunch is provided on Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday.
  • Complimentary evening snacks and host bar are provided on Monday and Tuesday.
  • Coffee and breakfast pastries are complementary on Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday.
  • Two accommodation options (Paris and Bally’s) will fit any budget, and both are within short, indoor walking distance to the Paris conference centre.
  • Las Vegas is within driving distance for many attendees, and there are countless direct, economical flights from most American and Canadian centres daily to Las Vegas.
  • Our Sunday Night Reception, included in full conference registration fees, is a party not to be missed.
