During the week of 19 – 23 October 2020 Surfex presented Digital Week featuring a series of live presentations during this condensed period.

Digital Week featured a number of tools and resources visitors could use to help find the content, contacts or expertise required, providing an opportunity to drill down on the huge amount of information, detail and products featured on the Surfex website.

OCCA and Step Exhibitions were only able to deliver Digital Week due to the considerable support Surfex is receiving from the industry. From leading associations and societies such as the British Coatings Federation and Royal Society of Chemistry to a wide range of exhibitors, Surfex is backed by a wealth of experience, expertise, knowledge and information that will help every visitor in their day to day role.
