European Coatings Show Closes with New Record Highs

With 1,024 exhibitors from 42 countries and around 28,500 trade visitors representing nearly 110 nationalities, the European Coatings Show closed today with new record highs – despite strike-related train cancellations throughout Germany. The leading trade fair thus underscored its position as an international meeting place for the global coatings industry.

The world’s largest industry show for the paint and coatings industry occupied seven halls in the Exhibition Centre Nuremberg, Germany. In addition to all the raw materials for coatings, printing inks and adhesives, the show includes laboratory and production equipment as well as testing and measuring devices. With around 700 participants from 42 countries, the European Coatings Congress was overwhelmingly well attended. 144 presentations given by prestigious speakers from science and research focussed on the production of high-quality coatings, paints, sealants, construction chemicals and adhesives.

The winner of the Innovation Slam: Dr. Berta Vega Sanchez(figure: NürnbergMesse)

One highlight on the second day of the trade fair was the premiere of the Innovation Slam in a real boxing ring located in hall 4. In front of an enthusiastic audience, five competitors set out to win over the spectators by pitching an innovative product in a presentation lasting 180 seconds. Voting by smartphone, the audience selected Dr. Berta Vega Sánchez from Bayer Material Science with her presentation “First biobased polyurethane crosslinker: Desmodur eco N” as the winner.

The next European Coatings Show will take place in the Exhibition Centre Nuremberg from 4-6 April 2017.
