Welcome to CPCA's 107th Annual Conference & AGM, Canada's leading event providing relevant, timely, and industry specific regulatory information and offering attendees updates on current issues of interest, advances in technology and R&D, and networking opportunities to support business objectives. CPCA is the only trade association representing the unique interests of the paint and coatings industry across Canada. We have been hosting Conferences for over 100 years providing paint manufacturers, suppliers and distributors with the information they need to succeed in Canada. CPCA is pleased to announce the focus for this year's event.
In an industry where regulation is the active precursor to many business decisions, paint and coatings companies continue to drive innovation in a dynamic industry. R&D continues to push the envelope in coatings technology creating more sustainable and multi-faceted, functional coatings disrupting industry segments and delivering better results for the customers they serve. Nanoparticle-manufacturing technology is enabling new and more durable smart coatings that both enhance performance and sustainability. Plasma coatings are being used to enhance textiles to repel water or provide corrosion-resistanance in fuel tank manufacturing. Heat reflective paint technology using TiO2 particles produces savings and efficiencies for both fuel consumption and energy with lower emissions. All industry segments are delivering new features and benefits for their customers with the adoption of transformative approaches in digitalization of operations throughout the supply chain. This year’s 107th Annual Conference & AGM will explore these technology changes and advances and what this means for the coatings industry in Canada. Find out what it takes to be an agent of change in a regulated coatings world. Join us May 20-21 in one of Canada’s oldest provinces – Québec City – the only North American city with a fortified colonial core dating back to 1608.
