April 2, 2020 — After weeks of painstaking consideration, including input from the industry, organizers of the ACS/ACC have decided to cancel the event. Given all relevant circumstances, including the continued unknown variables of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, corresponding changes by governments, and challenges to businesses, this was an unavoidable decision. The show will resume its biennial schedule April 5-7, 2022, at the Indiana Convention Center in Indianapolis.

The decision was difficult, as the organizers understand the important role the ACS/ACC serves in offering a platform for new products and technologies, connecting industry professionals, and educating coatings scientists. Although the 2020 installment will not proceed this year, the ACS/ACC will continue to serve as the most significant coatings show in North America when it resumes in 2022. In the meantime, ACS/ACC organizers remain committed to helping industry professionals stay up to date on the latest technology trends and innovations in coatings. Launching May 6, ACC Virtual will deliver ACC presentations through an in-depth, online learning experience. Additional information about this unique opportunity will be available in the coming weeks.

ACS/ACC organizers will continue to keep exhibitors, attendees, and stakeholders informed of further details related to the cancellation. Refer to the updated Q&A section of the ACS website – www.american-coatings-show.com – for quick answers to general questions. Specific inquiries may be sent to acshow@paint.org.

We want to thank our exhibitors, presenters, attendees, and stakeholders for their unwavering support during this unprecedented global event.
