Industry Pavilions

A new feature for the ACS 2020 is the addition of several new pavilions! As seen on the floor plan for the exhibition, there are now designated areas featuring a Powder Coatings Pavilion and an Adhesives & Sealants Pavilion.

While the ACS has always provided a platform for the full range of industry products, these new pavilions will offer you the opportunity to highlight specific products and services and draw attendees whose interests and business needs focus on these areas directly to your booth.

ACS Start Up

Designed to showcase new startup companies, the Startup Pavilion provides participating companies with critical exposure to leaders and experts within their industry, where they can introduce products, services and solutions to qualified attendees and exhibitors in both domestic and international markets. Startups have a special opportunity to present their company’s solutions during the American Coatings Show & Conference. A turnkey package will make it easy for them to sign up and find a very functional and attractive booth package.

Attendees from around the world will spend three days exploring the expo hall. This year, the ACS 2020 Startup Pavilion will add another excellent opportunity to an already buzzing show floor. The pavilion, Booth #313 in the expo hall, is located in an important area, very close the area where poster sessions, industry receptions, and product presentations will take place. The area will provide ample room for each startup company to interact and network with visitors, exhibitors, and conference attendees.

The application for the ACS 2020 Startup Pavilion is now available online. Please contact us about the Startup Pavilion or any other questions you might have about the show by email at or call at +1 (770) 727-0407 or or call at +1 (770) 727-0406.

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.

For your convenience, you will find a list of all Official ACS Service Contractors and vendors below, as well as a listing of official publications of the ACS.
