Nürnberg, Germany, becomes the world’s largest hub of the coatings industry with a range of products, information and events never seen before at the sixth European Coatings Show, scheduled for April 3–5. In addition, six congresses will take place on the subjects of coatings formulation, adhesive raw materials, construction chemicals, printing inks, production technology and management strategies.

Experts from all over the world attend this show to find information on the production of high-quality, competitive coatings, sealants, construction chemicals and adhesives. In 1999, the event boasted 569 exhibitors and 10,682 trade visitors, confirming the show’s top international position. Whether technician, laboratory assistant, engineer, buyer or application consultant, colleagues and competitors meet in Nürnberg for exchanging views and positioning.

Product Presentations

Information forums at the heart of exhibition activity have been an established element at the event for years. The exhibiting companies offer information about concrete solutions to problems and new features arranged by main subjects. This creates the best conditions for technical and practical communication with trade visitors. Admission to the exhibitors product presentations is free.

Other Exhibitions - Innovation in Adhesives

Adhesive manufacturers have been visiting the European Coatings Show from the start. Raw material suppliers to the coatings industry produce raw materials for adhesives as well. The accompanying European raw materials congress, Stick!, on April 5 is an ideal forum for exchanging views and communication.

Focus on Construction Chemicals

Experts in the formulation and production of construction chemical products find all the information they need for technical and business success in Nürnberg. The 3rd Construction Chemicals Congress on April 5 is a practice-oriented contribution for information exchange and new trends.

East & West: Connecting Europe

Information exchange is an efficient tool for establishing business relationships and for assessing and developing new markets. The European Coatings Show in Nürnberg, where the international coating experts meet, is excellent for this purpose. The 2001 exhibition will again become the East-West hub of the coatings industry! On April 4, exhibitors and visitors meet at the East & West Lunch. M.V. Saprykin, Chairman of the Russian coatings association Zentriak, will open the event as guest speaker. Information and tickets are available from Vincentz Verlag.
