Future Of Coatings Under Study

Update: 5/15/20

FOCUS Postponed to May 6, 2021

After weeks of careful consideration and taking into account the continued uncertainties related to the Covid-19 pandemic, The Detroit Society for Coatings Technology and the FOCUS planning committee have decided to postpone the 45th Annual FOCUS Conference from September 1, 2020 to May 6, 2021. It is with great sadness to announce that a FOCUS Conference will not occur in 2020, breaking a 44-year old tradition. While this was a very difficult decision, this is the best approach given the safety concerns of meeting in large groups and challenges to businesses in the current environment.

For 44 years the FOCUS Conference has provided a forum to discuss the most pressing issues affecting the coatings industry. From developing technologies to optimized productivity to emerging test methods, FOCUS has been the forum to share ideas and grow networks. The planning committee is already at work to ensure that the 45th FOCUS Conference scheduled for May 6, 2021 at The Inn at St. John’s will be a success. We thank you for your continued support.

We look forward to seeing you at the 45th FOCUS Conference on May 6th, 2021!
