Over 1,000 exhibitors from all over the world will be presenting raw materials for the manufacture of innovative coatings and printing inks along with the associated laboratory, production, testing and measuring technology. In addition, trade visitors will find adhesive raw materials plus preproducts for construction chemicals. Along with the European Coatings CONGRESS, taking place on 20 and 21 April, the world's largest specialist show for the industry provides an opportunity to discuss the latest advances and to develop ideas for the future of coatings. Visitors can now register for the European Coatings SHOW, and interested parties can reserve their Congress ticket online until 10 April.
Around two thirds of the registered exhibitors are making their expertise and materials available in the area of coatings raw materials, and nearly half offer printing ink raw materials. The third-largest exhibition segment is the adhesives raw materials sector. One in three exhibitors is presenting preproducts for construction chemicals, and one in five is showing laboratory and production technology. Many of the exhibitors cover several areas at once.
