A philosopher once said, "You got to be very careful if you don’t know where you’re going, because you might not get there." This definitely is not the case for the 2014 PDA Annual Conference! We know that all roads lead to Houston and one of the most comprehensive meetings about polyurea technologies and its uses.

The 2014 PDA Annual Conference, The Road to Success Using Polyurea, combines both educational and information content with a lively exhibition hall. During the three-day conference, PDA will offer the fantastic Intro to Polyurea course as well as Surface Preparation for Concrete and Steel on Monday. Tuesday will kick off with General session in the morning with dynamic speakers and breakout sessions geared toward formulators, applicators and owner/specifiers in the afternoon. PDA session topics include state of the industry, innovative coatings projects, and new formulas and processes.  This conference provides an excellent opportunity to meet with all the top professionals in the high performance elastomeric coatings industry.
