Exhibition: 14 - 16 September 2021 // Conference: 13 - 14 September 2021 // Nuremberg, Germany

European Coatings Show Conference

13 - 14 September 2021 // Nuremberg, Germany

Europe's leading coatings conference has been postponed. Instead of holding ECS Conference 2021 in March next year as planned, Vincentz Network, the organizer of European Coatings Show and ECS Conference, and NürnbergMesse have rescheduled it for 13-14 September 2021. The reasons are the ongoing coronavirus pandemic and the associated travel restrictions.
