SSPC Coatings+ 2020 was held Feb. 3–6 at the Long Beach Convention and Entertainment Center in Long Beach, California.


As part of its ongoing 70th anniversary celebration this year, the Coatings+ exhibit hall and common areas featured a museum display showing publications, marketing materials and tools of the trade from SSPC’s 70-year history.


Monday afternoon kicked off with SSPC’s annual awards luncheon, honoring outstanding individuals in the coatings industry, as well as Structure Award-winning coating projects.


At the Welcome Reception Monday evening, sponsored by Carboline, attendees enjoyed refreshments, live music and life-sized board games.


Speaker Erik Qualman led the Coatings+ keynote session Tuesday morning, showing attendees the five simple habits that digital leaders use today.


Surrounded by members of the SSPC Board of Governors, SSPC President Joe Walker and Sherwin-Williams Senior VP of Sales Doni Riddle cut the ribbon to the Coatings+ exhibit hall on Tuesday afternoon.


The Coatings+ 2020 exhibit hall featured almost 140 exhibiting companies, along with a first-time live demonstration stage in the hall, live mariachi music at the SSPC Mexico chapter’s booth and an activity zone with an artist recreating SSPC’s 70th anniversary logo.


The Sherwin-Williams Company hosted a reception Wednesday evening at Parker’s Lighthouse in Long Beach’s Shoreline Village.


Coatings+ 2020 officially ended with the annual Closing Reception, where sponsor LiUNA raffled off a Harley Davidson motorcycle to one lucky attendee.
