The International Thermal Spray Association (ITSA) annual meeting remains the premier event for the thermal spray community. Our annual membership meetings provide a mutually rewarding experience for all attendees – both business and personal.

The 2nd Annual Advanced Coatings Symposium and ITSA Annual Meeting was an absolute success! There were 111 registered attendees including more than 50 industry companies. There were 18 industry professionals that presented during the day and a half technical session. There was a tour of Superior Shot Peening that will be talked about for a very long time. Planning is already underway for next year’s event!
