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.
