From the 14th-16th of March, 3M will be exhibiting at ABP Expo 2016 and sponsoring the first ABP club Meeting and Dinner.
We know how important it is for the industry to meet and share learnings, ask questions and celebrate success.
Our stand this year has been based around questions people in the industry have been asking; such as how do you compound a ceramic clear coat? What's the best way to cut high strength steel? How do I save money on paint?
"Our expert team will be available at the ABP Expo E2 stand and a range of live demonstrations and interactive trials will also take place.
