Welcome to the 2020 ICMCTF Conference & Exhibition

ICMCTF is the premier international conference in the field of thin film deposition, characterization and advanced surface engineering promoting global exchange of ideas and information among scientists, technologists, and manufacturers. The conference includes more than 60 high profile invited speakers across fourteen symposia along with focused topic sessions, short courses, equipment exhibition, social networking events and an extensive poster session.

A vibrant industrial equipment exhibition is featured in conjunction with the Conference on Tuesday and Wednesday, April 28 - 29, 2020.  Participate in the industry’s largest conference dedicated to the arts and sciences of coatings, thin films, and surface modifications. Attendance to the exhibition is free and open to the public. The Exhibition will feature technology, equipment and services for Thin Film and Bulk Coatings, Coating Materials, Surface Modification Equipment, Monitoring & Test Equipment and all ancillary equipment used in conjunction with the deposition, monitoring and testing of all coatings and modified surfaces.  During exhibit hours, our attendees visit the exhibit hall often to be educated on new products, services and application techniques that will help them improve all facets of R&D, Engineering, Manufacturing, Quality Control and general laboratory operations. This is a great opportunity for vendors to interface with qualified scientists and engineers who are eager to learn more about your products and services. Many networking events are held throughout the week to ensure that our vendors and attendees can interact during nonexhibit days/hours.

Sign up today for your exhibit space !! Each booth is 10x10 and is located in the Grand Exhibit Hall of the Towne and Country Hotel and Convention Center.
