ACS Logos

American Coatings Show 2022 exhibitors may use the show logo to promote their company’s presence at the event. Use of the show logo is only approved to highlight the company’s participation in the ACS and official show activities hosted by organizers of the ACS.






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 2022. 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.

Official ACS Contractors, Service Providers and Vendors

American Coatings Association, Organizer
Vincentz Network, Organizer
AC Media, ACS Management
GES, ACS Decorator
EventSphere, ACS Housing Bureau
Expo Logic, ACS Registration

Official ACS Publications

Official publications of the show will bear the ACS logo and branding, along with the logos of either AC Media, the American Coatings Association and/or  Vincentz Network.

If you have questions about any communication that you receive, please feel free to contact Cameron Hames, Trade Show Manager, AC Media.

Thank you for your support. We look forward to seeing you in Indianapolis!
