Surfaces Reception 2016

Nearly 500 people with ties to panel processing flocked to the Georgia Aquarium in Atlanta for the biennial Surfaces Reception produced by Surface & Panel magazine and Bedford Falls Communications. The reception, held in conjunction with IWF 2016, featured abundant food and drink along with fabulous views of free-swimming beluga whales, rays, whale sharks and other animals of the sea. S&P Publisher John Aufderhaar greeted the crowd, while Warren Spitz, CEO of presenting sponsor Upper Canada Forest Products, also spoke. UCFP, which does business in the U.S. as Sierra Forest Products, is celebrating its 30th anniversary. Besides serving as a thank you for the industry’s support, the Surfaces Reception is a precursor to S&P’s annual symposium, which this year was Nov. 6-8 in Austin, Texas.
