The keynote speaker at the upcoming International Superyacht Coatings Conference (ISCC) 2014 will be Tom de Vries, director of Feadship, manufacturers of some of the most advanced and complex superyachts in the world. ISCC is a prominent business-to-business event, organized by Amsterdam RAI, in partnership with the International Council of Marine Industry Associations (ICOMIA) as well as the Superyacht Builders Association (SYBAss). Registration for the conference, which will take place in Amsterdam RAI on 11 and 12 December, is now open.
Specialising in superyacht coating processes and related rules and legislation, ISCC is much more than a conference and networking event: delegates will be encouraged to participate and contribute, not merely spectate. This highly interactive event will provide genuine opportunities to influence future decisions surrounding the current issues facing the coatings industry.
The two-day programme will explore and highlight a range of subjects including: coatings contracting and delivery; inspection and assessments; the demands of legislation; surface preparations and their effects on coating quality; and the measurement and maintenance of coatings. ISCC will provide delegates the chance to learn about and discuss the latest developments in the field of coatings with the industry’s key stakeholders, to influence future developments in the industry and to network with international colleagues from the global world of superyacht coatings.
Sponsors and Demonstrators
ISCC will feature sponsors showcasing their latest products and innovative equipment as well as practical and technical demonstration stands featuring new equipment and techniques. Both the sponsor and demonstration stands can be viewed during the conference breaks.
“When you share the same passion for perfection as we do at Feadship, this conference is a must,” states ISCC keynote speaker Tom de Vries.
The issue of superyacht coatings remains one of the greatest challenges facing the superyacht industry and ISCC 2014 provides an excellent chance to share knowledge and expertise.
