On behalf of the Steering Committee, I am honoured to invite you to the 2nd edition of Surface & Coating Expo 2016, India's largest event on Surface Engineering, Preparation, Finishing, Coating, Corrosion Protection & Technologies. The Maiden edition organised in 2014 was a great success and it received lot of positive feedback from the Industry, I would like to thank the steering committee members, Exhibitors, Delegates and Business visitors for making SCE 2014 a grand success event.
As in previous years, SCE 2016 provides an excellent forum and unique opportunity for exchanging information and discussion on a wide variety of Surface Finishing Technologies, Coating Applications, and Anti - Corrosion topics, from the leading experts representing the latest developments and showcasing future trends.
SCE 2016 will continue to be a strong focus on interactions between researchers, User Industry, Manufacturer and for all branches of Surface Finishing and Coating Applications that are contributing to the Manufacturing growth. We still need to focus on how innovations can be more efficiently exploited, what are the needs of the cutting edge industries leading the way with scaling up of technologies, what are the research priorities in the minds of industry and how can environmental sustainability be maintained and simultaneously economic sustainability achieved.
I am sure that we will have an excellent event which will provide sound information on technological components, technological progress in the field of Surface Finishing & Coating Technologies, industrial challenges, market issues and investor aspects. Moreover, it is your chance to establish networks. I am looking forward to meeting you all in Chennai, India during SCE 2016
