Washington, DC (PRWEB) June 02, 2013
The National Association for Surface Finishing (NASF) announced a significant increase in registrations for the 2013 SUR/FIN Manufacturing & Technology Tradeshow & Conference. Now in its 95th year, SUR/FIN will take place from June 10-12th at the Donald E. Stephens Convention Center in Rosemont, IL.
“This year’s conference has seen a strong increase across the board,” states conference Chairman Waasy Boddison, of American Plating Power. “We began to see the change in January when exhibit space sold out – despite an additional increase in space on the show floor. Full conference registrations and tradeshow attendee registrations also began a solid track upward and continue to do so today.”
Conference officials credit the impressive increase to the following:
- Consistent focus on industry issues, product knowledge and product technologies specific to the surface finishing industry alone
- Powerful keynote sessions on economy, technology and global finishing industry
- Convenient location of this year's event being just minutes away from Chicago O'Hare International Airport, entertainment district and multiple local hotels
- Lower cost for exhibitors and attendees due to central Rosemont, Illinois location
More than 1,250 industrial finishing professionals in such industries as aerospace, automotive, heavy equipment, and consumer products are expected to attend this 3 day event which places a strict focus on industry surface finishing processes and opportunities.
Informative keynote speakers, educational workshops, and a distinguished list of global panelists in manufacturing will all be part of the intense three day schedule which will also present over 150 companies exhibiting the latest technologies and services available in the surface finishing industry.
