Significant growth of PDA's 2012 Annual Conference over 2011

"Still facing an uncertain economy, demonstrating growth in our annual meeting is excellent news,” stated Kyle Flanagan, President of PDA. "Based upon projections, PDA feels that attendance figures will far exceed both the 2011 and 2010 annual meetings.” Flanagan noted that most of this growth is due to major changes made to the meeting's content with an expanded definition of membership, and meeting the needs of members and their market. "We really listened to our members and developed a program that met their needs,” noted Flanagan. "We added technical sessions for formulators, more diverse content for contractor/applicators, great networking opportunities and are bringing in relevant industry speakers.” PDA will host its 2012 Annual Conference from 26 - 29 March 2012 in Orlando, FL, USA. The programme is dedicated to the best set of presentations possible for applicators, formulators, raw material suppliers, and other professionals within the thick-film high performance elastomeric industry. There will be three and a half days of technical presentations, case studies, and the latest in delivery equipment. In addition to the dynamic line-up of presenters, new this year is PDA's Annual Awards Luncheon where successful applications will be recognized for all attendees. Four training courses will be offered at this year's PDA Annual Conference. Included are an updated Basic Spray Course with Surface Prep Course as part of it; the new Advanced Spray Course; and a new four hour Technology Intro Course for non-applicators, owners and specifiers. Attendees will also be able to try their hand at spraying or watching a live application demo. Of course, PDA's Annual Conference will offer many networking opportunities that will allow attendees to meet and discuss the issues and topics of the industry.
