Live webcam, a show app, web updates and complete video and print coverage will follow thousands of attendees, more than 100 exhibitors and all the action at SSPC 2012, set to begin Monday (Jan. 30) in Tampa, FL.



SSPC 2012 is exclusively dedicated to protective, marine, industrial and commercial coatings.

This year’s SSPC show will feature a packed Technical Program with scores of sessions, committee meetings, SSPC’s annual meeting, and the annual Structure Awards.

For the first time, Technology Publishing/PaintSquare will capture all of the action with live webcam on the show floor, a new SSPC Show Page on; and comprehensive coverage in print and online through PaintSquare News, and JPCL, the voice of the SSPC.

“Technology Publishing is proud to present this exciting new multi-dimensional experience at SSPC 2012,” said Harold Hower, CEO of Technology Publishing/PaintSquare. “We look forward to enhancing the show experience for all participants on site, and extending that you-are-there feeling to others who are unable to attend.”

Online Show Portal

PaintSquare’s Guide to SSPC 2012 is a new portal to comprehensive coverage of the show, featuring a Twitter feed (#sspc2012); a live webcam from the Technology Publishing/PaintSquare booth (640); articles before, during and after the show; and links to exhibit and registration information, the daily schedule, and training and certification opportunities at the show.

Technology Publishing will also provide video services for the show, and PaintSquare News will offer both editorial and promotional opportunities for additional video coverage.
