"Aiding the East Coast in Mitigating Corrosion Concerns"

The NACE Carolinas Section is excited to host the 2018 Eastern Area Conference. This year’s conference is being held at the Hilton, Kingston Resort in Myrtle Beach, October 1-3, 2018. This is the perfect time of the year to visit family friendly South Carolina. The hotel has complimentary shuttle service to nearby shops, restaurants and indeed, golf courses.

We are in Myrtle Beach and the weather will be great. Enjoy a beachside welcome reception on Monday night.

Early Tuesday we will begin the technical program. We will be running both a corrosion track as well as a coatings track. This is a great time to share with industry professionals the problems and opportunities we see on an ongoing basis.

A trade show will run concurrently with the technical program. There will be ample time to network with a variety of industry representatives. Exhibitors will be on hand to showcase new products and technologies. Bring your questions and issues and be sure you leave with solutions!

Monday we will be offering a Rectifier Course.

Not only is this a great chance to enjoy the South Carolina Shore line and all it has to offer but also network with local professionals who make a difference in our industry.
