SSPC: The Society for Protective Coatings has announced the postponement of its Coatings+ 2021 conference, slated to be held at the Phoenix Convention Center in Phoenix, Arizona.

In an emailed press release, the organization said that the conference, which was originally scheduled for Feb. 1-4, 2021, will now be held Dec. 13-16, 2021. SSPC cited COVID-19 as the reason behind the move.

SSPC: The Society for Protective Coatings has announced the postponement of its Coatings+ 2021 conference, slated to be held at the Phoenix Convention Center in Phoenix, Arizona.

“Over the past few weeks, leaders at SSPC and NACE have deliberated over the most appropriate path forward for SSPC’s Coatings+ 2021 conference scheduled to be held in Phoenix, Arizona, this coming February,” the organization said. “It became apparent that attempting to hold the event at the same standard we have in the past in the midst of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic is just not feasible, nor would it be safe for our members, attendees or staff.”

SSPC noted that exhibitors, sponsors and speakers will receive separate communication regarding how the date change could impact them.

“With the ongoing combination of SSPC and NACE, we expect Coatings+ 2021 to remain a prime opportunity to showcase the new organization and share our vision with members,” SSPC added.

The organization noted that the Coatings+ postponement does not mean that NACE’s annual CORROSION conference will be impacted. CORROSION 2021 is still scheduled for April 18-22, 2021, in Salt Lake City, Utah.

“We hope you all will be able to join us next December when we can once again meet face to face in a safe, and productive manner,” SSPC said.
