27th Biennial Western Coatings Symposium & Show and FSCT Annual Meeting set for November 2005.

The 27th Biennial Western Coatings Symposium (WCS) and the FSCT 83rd Annual Meeting will be held on November 6-9, 2005 at the Westin Casuarina Hotel and Spa, in Las Vegas, NV. Geared to the theme, "Spirit of Cooperation," the event explores a wide variety of coatings in areas serving the paper, graphic arts, wood, aircraft, and electronic industries. The WCS will bring together professionals representing the wide spectrum of the industry--and will offer a rich interplay of ideas and solutions to help attendees prosper in today's diverse world of coatings.

The program will include one day of short courses, followed by a 2-1/2 day symposium featuring 30-minute paper presentations. These presentations will be offered in separate, themed tracks to include Manufacturing/Operations, Formulation, and Management. In addition, suppliers will be invited to showcase their products and services related to these areas through tabletop exhibits.
