Since postponing both its Annual Painters Competition and its Trade Show and Demo Day in the wake of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the Coating Society of the Houston Area has announced new dates for both events.

Previously, the 31st Annual Painters Competition was slated to take place 8 a.m.-3 p.m. on March 28 at the Pasadena Fairgrounds in Pasadena, Texas, and the tradeshow and demo were scheduled to take place on April 3 at the Pasadena Convention Center.

Since postponing both its Annual Painters Competition and its Trade Show and Demo Day in wake of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the Coating Society of the Houston Area has announced new dates for both events.

Regarding the competition, Rachel Herrington, President of CSHA wrote at the time: “We feel at this time that it was the best decision to be made considering the amount of children that are also in attendance at this event. Our nation has chosen to close down schools, sporting events, concerts and many other forms of social gathers pertaining to children, and we feel it’s best that we follow suite.”

In addition to both events being postponed, the CSHA has since announced the cancellation of its April Coating Society Meeting.

“With the meeting falling right in the middle of our postponed Painters Competition, and Postponed tradeshow/demo day, canceling our monthly meeting as well made the most logical sense,” wrote Herrington on the society’s webpage.

“Also, Harris county has shut down all bars and restaurants (except to-go orders and delivery), so we would not have a venue to use regardless. We also took into consideration that most companies in our industry have issued travel bans and are discouraging their workers not to gather in groups of more than 10 people.”

The CSHA adds that it will continue to watch for new information regarding COVID-19 and intends to let members know if they will also have to cancel its slated May meeting by mid-April. The organization also asks that everyone continue to practice CDC-recommended safety procedures and social distancing.

New Dates

In moving forward, the CSHA has landed on hosting its 31st Painters Competition on Oct. 10, at the Pasadena Fairgrounds in Pasadena, Texas. The event still plans to host family-friendly tailgating events, games and kid-friendly activities. Gate open times, as well as the start of the competition have also been reported to stay the same.

Also not changing location, the CSHA Trade Show and Demo Day will now take place on June 26 at the Pasadena Convention Center. According to the updated information, the event still plans to host more than 70 exhibits and has kept the previous schedule the same in regard to exhibit times, demo fair, technical program, crawfish dinner and awards.

The organization states that more information regarding both events is slated to follow and will be released as soon as it is made available.
