3. Inspiration for tomorrow’s Surface Finishes
Meetings, deadlines and pressure of costs. There is often no time for detailed thoughts about tomorrow’s surface finishes during your daily work. The European Coatings Show inspires with the presentation of groundbreaking innovations, whereas the European Coatings Show Conference comprehensively deals with the issues concerning industry-specific production processes and formulation of coatings, paint, adhesives, sealants and construction chemical products.
4. Create Networks and Trust
You meet the crème de la crème at the European Coatings Show. Discuss the possibilities for new recipes, update on the latest processes and equipment technologies, and profit from exchanging views with colleagues. At times of shortages of raw materials – especially of TiO2 – and rising raw material prices, you can intensify relationships with suppliers and safeguard supplies.
5. Technology Location Nuremberg
Located at the heart of Europe, the technology location Nuremberg is easy and quick to reach via the motorway network, rail network and European flight network. The exhibition centre and old town centre are only a few minutes away from the main rail station and airport by public transport.
