Not everything that happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas! When we convene for PCI's 34th Annual Meeting, you'll hit the jackpot with winning industry insights and economic trends. Come try your luck at some good, old fashioned peer-to-peer face time with other PCI members and powder coating experts. The event will be kicked off with committee meetings and the annual golf tournament, where proceeds will go to the PCI Scholarship fund. There will be plenty of time built into the schedule for you to explore the famed Las Vegas strip, catch a show, or play a hand of your favorite casino game..
