The European Coatings Show set new records once again this year, underscoring its position as the leading show for the international coatings industry: about 30,500 trade visitors* (2017: 30,198) from 124 countries (2017: 120) seized the opportunity offered by this year’s event to learn about innovations in paint, coating and sealing compound manufacture from 1,156 exhibitors from 46 countries (2017: 40). The exhibition area, extending to eight halls this year, turned the Exhibition Centre Nuremberg into the central platform for coatings experts from around the world to share ideas and experiences. In addition to the trade show, the overlapping European Coatings Show Conference also proved a drawcard with an even more international presence: about 800 participants came from 54 countries to listen to the presentations by leading scientists and development experts.
Exhibitors and trade visitors travelled to Nuremberg from six continents to discuss every aspect of the process chain of paint and coatings manufacture. They had more space this year, with eight halls in total. In six of them, including Hall 9 as a new addition, exhibitors displayed raw materials used in paints, printing inks and adhesives, while two more halls were devoted to laboratory and production technology, and also testing and measurement devices.
The JRS booth was more striking than ever. With its circumferential wooden border it fitted perfectly in the this year’s focus: eco-friendliness and functionality! We received even more visitors than last time.
We’re already looking forward to the next exhibition 23-25 March 2021 in Nurenberg – see you there!
