European Coatings Show – The gathering of the coatings and paint industry

A preview of the European Coatings Show and Conference, taking place in Nuremberg, Germany, from 18th to 21st March 2019.
Since its premiere under the name of Farbe und Lack in 1991, the European Coatings Show has developed into today’s biggest and most important event in the world for the coatings industry. Every two years, formulators, producers, industrial processors and representatives from science and research discuss the latest developments in the coatings industry.
The product spectrum at the European Coatings Show, which takes place on 19–21 March at the Exhibition Centre Nuremberg in Germany, reflects global innovations in paints and coatings. Products on display include raw materials for paints and coatings, printing inks and adhesives, construction chemical precursors, laboratory and production technology, testing and measuring technology, application technology, environmental protection and occupational safety and services. The event set new records in 2017 with more than 30,000 visitors and 1,135 exhibitors. An on-line exhibitor director, now available as iOS or Android app for smartphones and tablets, will help you navigate the show:
A survey of 2017 exhibitors and visitors showed that:
  • 95% of exhibitors reached their most important target groups
  • 94% of exhibitors made new business connections, with 87% expecting noticeable follow-up business
  • 54% of visitors came from the European Union, 16% from the rest of Europe, 2 % from Australia/Oceania, Asia and Africa, and 8% from America.
The event also offers an educational conference programme, which takes place on 18–19 March. In 2017, with more than 840 participants, the European Coatings Show Conference was even more heavily attended than in previous years. This year, more than 150 specialized presentations by internationally-renowned speakers will explore the production of paints, sealing compounds, construction chemical materials and adhesives. The European Coatings Show Conference is preceded by a series of pre-conference tutorials on 17th March. The two-day conference programme then begins on 18th March, with cutting-edge presentations that cover the latest research and trends in the paints and coatings industry. Expert speakers will be offering specialized knowledge and insights for current challenges in product research and development, manufacturing, regulatory matters and sustainability. The full conference programme can be found on-line.
The European Coatings Show 2019 promises to be even bigger and better than ever before. We look forward to seeing you in Nuremberg. Don’t forget to pick up your copy of Chemicals Knowledge while you’re there!
