The Surface Preparation and Cleaning Conference (SPCC)

SPCC 2020 – March 31, April 1 – 2, 2020

Seattle Marriott Waterfront
Seattle, WA
Registration is now open
Early registration ends March 9, 2020


We have received multiple questions about our plans for the Linx Conferences with the developing outbreak of Covid-19 or Coronavirus.

Currently we intend to proceed with both the Business of Cleans and the SPCC in Seattle from March 31st to April 2nd.

We are monitoring recommendations from both the CDC and the State of Washington Department of Health, both of whom currently advise that the risk of infection is low, but that all should be vigilant and plan for any changes in circumstances. We anticipate taking precautions during the conference to reduce the chance of any infection.

We hope that the worldwide efforts to contain the Covid-19 virus are successful and that the conferences can go ahead as planned. However, we would ask our attendees to be aware of their companies travel policies, review the CDC’s Traveler’s Health Notices, and cancel their travel plans if they become sick or show symptoms of respiratory illness.

If circumstances change, we will heed the advice of the relevant authorities in making a decision about proceeding with the conference.
