Share your bright ideas

Europe’s largest and most important universal coatings conference is calling for your bright ideas.

One conference for all your trend-scouting, learning and network needs

The ECS Conference offers over the course of two and a half days all you need to stay on top of your game: more than 800 international experts from more than 50 countries will be gathering in Nuremberg to present recent developments, to debate and to inform. No trend will escape you.

The 10 pre-conference tutorials – run by renowned experts – are designed to quickly bring newcomers up to speed on the state of the art and to refresh what they already know. They are great preparation for actively joining the discussion on the ensuing days of the conference.

Whether at the welcome get-together in Nuremberg’s old town on Sunday evening, during conference breaks or at the after-work reception on the first conference day, the ECS Conference offers numerous and varied networking possibilities to help you expand, cultivate and get the most out of your personal ECS network.
