“Feedback on the May 2017 ECS was overwhelmingly positive,” said David White, ECS president. “Harrah’s exhibit space and meeting facilities are state-of- the-art and a great fit for our growing conference. The 2017 attendance was up to over 1,200 attendees, with over 60% from paint manufacturers, formulators and raw material manufacturers.”

The next Eastern Coatings Show will be held May 13-15, 2019, at Harrah’s Resort in Atlantic City, N.J.
