American Coatings Show and Conference to Highlight Latest Industry Technologies

A must-see coatings industry event, the 2024 American Coatings Show and Conference will take place from April 30 to May 2, 2024, at the Indiana Convention Center in Indianapolis, Indiana. Coatings professionals from across North America and beyond will gather to see the latest technological advances within the industry and hear about new research and trends.


Conference Program

The 2024 American Coatings Conference will follow the theme, “Innovations in Coatings Technology: Shaping Our Future.” The conference will offer a curated, varied program across multiple topic tracks, which will include some 90 technical sessions. The event brings together members of the coatings industry’s technical and scientific community with members of the academic world and their students for three days of learning and sharing the latest scientific research and advancements in coatings technology.

The keynote address of the conference will be given by Dr. Robert Roop, senior vice president and chief technology officer at Axalta Coating Systems. Roop will discuss the shift in focus of coatings innovations, as R&D has historically been driven by the need for improved performance and meeting regulatory requirements. Going forward, the future of innovation is more focused on sustainability, which is driven by demands of society. Over the past 10 years, Roop has served in various leadership roles within Axalta. Prior to joining Axalta, he spent 20 years working in technology and operations at various DuPont chemical and polymer businesses.
