Annual CPCA Conference and AGM 

104th CPCA Annual Conference & AGM 2017

May 24-25, 2017

InterContinental Hotel

Montreal, Quebec


Trends Moving Industry to Higher Levels of Performance

Recent developments put the onus squarely on companies in the paint and coatings industry to change the way they do business. This applies to all companies in the supply chain: manufacturers, suppliers and distributors in every segment of the industry. These are trends that impact the bottom line including mergers and acquisitions that directly impact market share and price; currency fluctuations that can help or hinder raw material supply; R&D decisions related to innovative technologies for improved performance and greener products that meet stiffer regulations and consumer demands.  

The conference will take a deeper dive on these trends with insightful views from presenters on how they impact companies directly and indirectly. It will provide all an opportunity to look at how these trends will continue to propel the coatings industry forward as the leading chemical sector in terms of shareholder value. 

Join the coatings industry for this important annual gathering to hear from industry colleagues, dedicated professionals and renowned experts. 

Don’t miss it.
