The Coating Society of Houston is preparing for its Annual Painters Competition in addition to its 2020 Trade Show and Demo Fair.

Established in 1956 as a charitable organization, the coating society states its purpose is to promote “education, best practices in corrosion control and to expand the knowledge and proper use of protection coatings to mitigate the effects of corrosion in the industry.”

The event opens the floor to industrial blasting and coating professionals where they can showcase their skills and compete for various prizes, educational opportunities and bragging rights. The organization also notes that the event is a great marketing opportunity for business and self-promotion.

The Coating Society of Houston is preparing for its Annual Painters Competition, slated to take place on March 28 in Pasadena, Texas.

To participate, the Coating Society is looking for teams of three—composed of a foreman, craftsman and helper—to show off their painting skills. While paint, panel and air will all be supplied for the competition, teams or their sponsor must supply all other required equipment needed to compete.

The first prize winner will receive $900 and a free SSPC or NACE International training course.

While teams are competing, families can also get in on some tailgating fun where other event activities include: games, door prizes, face painting, food and an Easter egg hunt.

Last year, the Coating Society of Houston celebrated its 30th Annual Painters Competition. In carrying tradition of the event, donations and contributions of industrial-related items will be accepted as to help make this year’s competition another successful event.

The painters’ competition, to be held on March 28, will start at 9 a.m, at the Pasadena Fairgrounds in Pasadena, Texas. The fairgrounds will officially open its doors at 8 a.m. and plans to end at 3 p.m. For more information, visit: coatingsocietyofhouston.org.
