Surtech Middle East 2017

Exhibition and Conference

4 - 6 December 2017
Dubai International Convention & Exhibition Centre

The Surtech Middle East 2017 Conference

The Surotech Middle East 2017 Conference provides an excellent opportunity for scientists and engineers (academia and industry) from the region and from all over the world to meet and discuss the latest advances in surfaces and coatings physics/chemistry and the progress of the surface science and coatings approach of many related innovation fields.

The Surtech Middle East 2017 conference organizing committee is looking forward to welcoming you in Dubai.

The conference will be held in the state of art Dubai Internatinal Convention & Exibhition Centre - Dubai World Trade Centre. The conference will be held in the Sheikh Maktoum Hall.
