Concrete polishing contractors will again gather for the annual International Concrete Polishing & Staining Conference (ICPSC). The event takes place at Gwinnett Center in Duluth, Ga., just north of Atlanta, Oct. 11-14. Concrete Surfaces is again the media sponsor of the ICPSC.

The conference features thousands of square feet of industry displays, and this year’s exhibit hall space will be double the size of last year’s. There will also be 4 days of both advanced and beginners educational seminars, equipment demonstrations, hands-on workshops, and hundreds of industry peers from around the world with whom to share ideas.

It all starts on Thursday morning, Oct. 11, with a welcome and keynote address. A welcoming reception takes place that evening. Friday and Saturday, Oct. 12 and 13, will be full days of seminars and demonstrations. On Friday evening winners of the Concrete Surfaces Polished Concrete Awards will be recognized. The event ends Sunday morning, Oct. 14, with an Ask the Experts Roundtable.

Getting your polishing business SET is this year’s theme.
