Advances in Coatings Science and Technology

For the first time, ETCC is being held in Britain alongside the UK’s leading coatings show, Surfex , which runs from 24th - 25th May in Hall 8 at the NEC , directly below the congress suites.

Birmingham proudly describes itself as the Heart of England, located in the centre of the country and steeped in history, culture, science and industry. With easy travel to nearby Stratford-Upon-Avon, Warwick Castle and the Malvern Hills. The NEC is the UK’s No 1 venue for exhibitions, conferences and concerts: superbly connected to Birmingham International Airport and Railway Station and with excellent hotels close by.

The congress is co-organised by The Oil and Colour Chemists‘ Association (OCCA ) and the Federation of Associations of Technicians for Industry of Paints in European Countries (FATIPEC ).

ETCC anticipates participation of some 300 manufacturers, raw material suppliers and academics.
