Finishers Prepare for SUR/FIN 2019

The annual event, hosted by NASF, kicks off on June 3rd.

Nasf Sized

According to NASF, the annual SUR/FIN conference and expo is where leading surface technology companies connect, collaborate and contribute. It is the primary conference and trade show dedicated specifically to the surface technology industry. And because it is the only conference and trade show sponsored by the ​National Association for Surface Finishing (NASF)—representing the $28 billion finishing industry—it attracts noted business leaders and prominent thinkers to a forum where relevant issues are addressed and technologies presented.

SUR/FIN 2019 will feature informative sessions covering everything from public policy to technology standards, high impact networking events and an extensive network of industry suppliers located within an extensive exhibit space. As an attendee, you’ll also receive the latest updates on public policy and technology standards that affect your business on a daily basis and may change in the coming year with a consistently shifting political climate.

Join industry stakeholders June 3-5 at Donald E. Stephens Convention Center in Rosemont, IL. For more information, visit
