Good Morning,

With the start of a new year, we are less than 6 weeks away from the new Specialty & Custom Chemicals America trade show.  This inaugural event will feature a similar format and schedule as the September show in Charleston below are a few details and reminders:

Attendee Early Rate Deadline – Friday, January. 25

Similar to the Charleston show, our one flat registration fee is reinvested into multiple meals and catering functions over the course of the trade show (11:00 AM Tuesday through Noon Thursday) – including breakfasts, lunches, and afternoon receptions.  Aside from the typical business value offered by the exhibits and conference program, these receptions and meals are designed to be added networking opportunities for all attendees. 

Our event's partnership with the specialty chemical trade association, SOCMA, will provide an additional networking event on Monday evening, as well as a keynote breakfast Tuesday morning (see 3rd section below).

  • $430 Trade Show Regular Rate (thru Jan. 25; $455 after)
