A Note to ACS 2020 Exhibitors

The show organizers would like to thank all American Coatings Show 2020 exhibitors for their patience and support while we made our final decision regarding this year’s event.

Because we value your commitment and partnership in making the ACS a successful platform for the industry, we would like to show our appreciation to ACS 2020 exhibitors by offering an opportunity to receive a special discount for future participation when the show resumes its biennial schedule April 5-7, 2022, at the Indiana Convention Center in Indianapolis.

Any exhibitor who chooses to transfer their booth fees for the ACS 2020 to the ACS 2022 will receive a 20% discount on the cost of their booth. This discount applies in addition to any other discount that would normally apply (e.g. ECS exhibitor discount, ACA member discount, etc.). To qualify for this special offer,  a minimum of 50% of the booth fee must be transferred.

As an added incentive, exhibitors who transfer 50% or more of their ACS 2020 both fees will also receive the following:

  • ACS 2020 exhibitor rates will apply for ACS 2022 booth space
  • Priority treatment for booth placement/location
  • Promotion on the ACS website and social media platforms

In order to take advantage of this discount, exhibitors must respond by April 15.

If you have any questions about this offer, or would like to request a refund for your ACS 2020 booth fees, please contact show management.

Official ACS Contractors, Providers, Vendors and Publications

ACS exhibitors may be periodically contacted by non-official contractors offering such services as advertising opportunities, exhibition guides, stand construction, housing, or the option of purchasing an attendee registration list..

The organizers of the ACS have not provided any information to these third parties, or given permission for them to contact you. We do not sell exhibitor lists/contact information to anyone. Companies often use public information available on the internet to acquire exhibitors’ contact information.

Of course, it is your decision who you appoint and how you choose to promote your presence at the ACS 2020. However, we don’t want any exhibitor to take advantage of an opportunity mistakenly thinking that it is an official ACS-sponsored or supported opportunity when it is not.
