With Global Focus, Opening Reception Kicks Off AMPP 2023

Sponsored by Carboline and AMPP, the 2023 AMPP Annual Conference + Expo kicked off with the annual Opening Reception on Sunday night. From around-the-world whiskey tastings to a virtual reality (VR) flying experience, the opening reception celebrated the global communities and impact that both organizations make each day. Food, drink, and décor took attendees and exhibitors near and far.  

With numerous chapter and global locations represented from AMPP and various worldwide locations and brands at Carboline (Dudick and Specialty Polymer Coatings), it was a match made in the stratosphere!  

Guests had the opportunity to take flight with a paper airplane cornhole game while experiencing the wonders of the world. The event, which took place Sunday evening in the Colorado Convention Center, also kicked off Carboline’s week-long activity by engaging attendees through game passports and stamps. (One grand-prize winner will receive an awesome travel-related giveaway.)  

“We are excited to sponsor the opening reception once again with AMPP,” said Samantha Nelson, corporate event planner at Carboline Company. “I wanted to highlight Carboline’s global positioning while providing a fun and memorable experience through different activities, whiskeys, and foods. I think we’ve planned a fantastic getaway, and we can’t wait to see you there!”

Adventure was had by all who journeyed to the opening reception. It was an exciting way to embark upon the AMPP Annual Conference + Expo.
