MTCC to welcome 5,000 top leaders from world's coatings industry

TORONTO, Canada | Posted on October 1st, 2007

Sponsored by the Federation of Societies for Coatings Technology (FSCT),
the convention will run from October 3-5, 2007. The MTCC anticipates this
major convention will produce significant revenue for Toronto's hotels,
restaurants, shops and entertainment venues, with an overall economic impact
of approximately $10.76 million in direct spending.

Focusing on the theme "Clean-Lean-Green," ICE 2007 will combine a variety
of educational programs with the largest North American exhibition of raw
materials, equipment, and services for the coatings manufacturing industry. In
attendance will be top industry experts, bench chemists, Lab managers, and
Research and Development directors from Coating manufacturers worldwide. Most
have advanced degrees in chemistry.

Among the key program offerings will be FutureCoat, a major technical
conference which will examine the most innovative methodologies and
applications shaping the future of the coatings industry. This intense program
will feature highly focused tracks, with sessions ranging from green
chemistry, formulation, pigments, waterborne, clearcoats, and pre-treatments.

General interest sessions will examine such topics as corrosion,
nanotechnology, weathering, and instrumentation. The Keynote address, entitled
"Green Chemistry and Entropic Control in Coatings Materials and Processes",
will be presented by John C. Warner, of Warner Babcock Institute.

ICE 2007 will also include this year's International Coatings Expo.
Recognized worldwide, the Expo is expected to attract coatings professionals
from over 63 countries. Featured are the products and services used in the
development, manufacturing, testing, and application of protective and
decorative paints, coatings, inks, adhesives, and construction chemicals.

Approximately 170 leading industry suppliers will be exhibiting. Their
sales and marketing staffs will display a wide variety of raw materials,
production equipment, containers, laboratory apparatus, software, testing
devices, and services furnished to the coatings and allied industries.
Hands-on demonstrations of the wide variety of new environmentally friendly
products and technologies the coatings industry has to offer are expected to
be of special interest to attendees.

"We are extremely excited to be holding our conference in Toronto this
year", said Joseph Pontoski, Executive Director for the FSCT. "Our theme of
'Clean-Lean-Green' fits right in with the City's commitment to the health of
the Global Environment. Few cities are able to offer such a unique combination
of recreation, entertainment and cultural diversity. We are certain that our
international audience will have a great experience."

"We are honoured to be welcoming the FSCT and the leaders of the world's
coatings industry to Toronto and to the MTCC," added Barry Smith, the Centre's
CEO. "ICE 2007 is considered the premier event of the year by industry
insiders, and we know they will have a fabulous and memorable experience
here."
