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.
