Welcome to the 2023 ICMCTF Conference & Exhibition

ICMCTF is internationally recognized as a vibrant technical conference that integrates fundamental and applied research focused on thin film deposition, characterization, and advanced surface modification techniques. ICMCTF is the premier international meeting in the field promoting the global exchange of information among scientists, technologists, and manufacturers. The conference draws more than 800 attendees each year with multiple oral technical sessions and a well attended poster session which is a major component of the technical program.

A vibrant industrial equipment exhibition is featured in conjunction with the Conference on Tuesday and Wednesday, May 23 - 24, 2023.  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.
