Press releases about European Coatings Show
The international coatings community gathered at the Exhibition Centre Nuremberg from 4-6 April 2017 for the largest European Coatings Show to date. The leading show for the production of paints and coatings, sealants, construction chemicals and adhesives recorded a further increase in the number of exhibitors (1,135* compared to 1,024 in 2015) and a new record of 30,198* trade visitors (2015: 28,481), as well as a larger exhibition area and peak figures for international participation. Trends included functionality, eco-friendly development approaches that make more sparing use of resources, and novel solutions for antimicrobial coatings, for example. The European Coatings Show Conference, which partly overlapped with the trade fair, was also a winner. The conference was held on 3 and 4 April, and also achieved a new record, with more than 840 participants taking the opportunity to expand their specialist knowledge.
