We wish to welcome and thank you for your interest in sponsoring the 2019 Surface Coatings Association of New Zealand 57th Annual Convention. This year we are heading back to the South Island after 7 years away. As our theme this year is Coating Resilience the obvious location is Christchurch, a city that has shown itself to be amazingly resilient to all that has happened to it. With an international airport in the city, it is also easy for both national and international delegates, speakers and visitors to attend.

The last few years we moved the convention dates to be the week prior to the SCAA Conference to entice more international speakers to come ‘Downunder’ to attend both events and this is exactly what has happened, so we are doing this again. We have also stayed with the Wednesday - Friday format, which we feel worked very well last time.

The SCANZ Convention brings together researchers, chemists, salespeople, manufacturers and academics from throughout New Zealand (and Australia), with approximately 80 delegates attending.

We hope to have technical papers that focus on the ‘Coatings Resilience’ theme that will include topics along focussing on new technologies, health & safety, sustainability and research & development.

As well as the more technical papers, we also look forward to more generic papers from some leading innovators, as well as more topical papers on new regulations that apply to our industry. Finally, we also have a fantastic social programme that allows for networking opportunities throughout the event, including our Conference Dinner at the fantastic Cardboard Cathedral.

We are confident that the friendly, personal nature of the SCANZ convention provides an excellent opportunity for sponsors to promote goods and services and to market their organisation to a wide range of influential people throughout the Surface Coatings Industry.

In today’s economic climate, sponsorship can leverage positive results when incorporated as a comprehensive and effective marketing plan. Consider the benefits your organisation can enjoy in supporting this convention:

  • Raise your organisation’s profile amongst a professional, qualified target audience.

  • Gain recognition including acknowledgment and clear demonstration of your organisation’s involvement, commitment and support for the surface coatings industry.

  • Gain valuable insights, information and exposure to the latest developments.

  • Inclusion in the integrated, professional marketing campaign with your logo included in all marketing material via email, the website, print, and in the Brushstrokes magazine.

  • Utilise your own marketing team to work with the Organising Committee to ensure your satisfaction on all of
    the above.
