Posted on Monday, December 18, 2017

The Powder Coating Institute (PCI) is excited to announce the Custom Coater Forum to be held January 16 & 17, 2018 at the new Westin Sarasota in Sarasota, Fla.  This is the only educational and networking event designed specifically for custom coaters. The Custom Coater Forum provides presentations and roundtable discussions on business solutions, new product technologies, PCI programs, and much more.

This is an excellent networking opportunity that will help coaters gain new resources and tools to improve their business, as well as develop relationships with other powder coaters.  Attendees benefit from knowledge they can use to immediately enhance their business practices. This years’ program features insightful presentations, including “Planning and Practicing are Key Strategies to Surviving a Major Business Interruption,” “How Can a Professional Employer Organization (PEO) Help with My Business,” and “Managing Your Online Reputation Like a Pro.”  Attendees will also hear about exciting technologies that can benefit their business with sessions on “Architectural Applications,” “Grounding + Racking + Part Density = Profit,” and “Sprayable Thermoplastic Powder Coatings,” among others.  There will also be an interactive roundtable session for attendees to engage with one another about a variety of topics.

This two-day program is filled with helpful information for all custom coaters.  Attendees will also learn about PCI’s newest updates to the certification program and what custom coaters have learned from being involved in the new peer group program.  For presentation descriptions, schedule of events and registration information, go to and click the TRAINING and EVENTS tab then scroll to Custom Coater Forum.
