Welcome to the AMPP Annual Conference + Expo

On behalf of the board of directors of AMPP and the AMPP Global Center, it is our pleasure to welcome you to the second AMPP Annual Conference + Expo in Denver, Colorado. From informative programs and workshops to exhibits and networking, this conference brings you the very latest information on materials, corrosion and coating trends, best practices, and products.

AMPP’s conference is our industry’s largest and most comprehensive event and the ideal occasion to reconnect with old friends and network with industry peers. Whether you are focused on corrosion, coatings, materials, or seeing new technologies from around the world, you will find everything you need in one place.  

An AMPP Annual Conference + Expo registration includes entry to:
