2018 CORROSION Conference & Expo Kicks Off!

By Stephanie Chizik

NACE International’s CORROSION Conference & Expo in Phoenix kicked off this year with an Opening Night Reception to remember. To start the event, Native American dancers led attendees and exhibitors into the ballroom. Their authentic Apache, bow and arrow, and Rainbow dances were popular with the crowd.

It is estimated that 1,500+ people total attended last night’s ceremony, which offered a chance for mingling at the Phoenix Convention Center from 5:30 to 7:00 p.m. (Specific attendee numbers were not available at the time of press.)


Carboline and NACE sponsored this year’s Opening Night Reception. Following a short welcome in the Apache language, leaders from both companies gave welcome speeches.
