Preparations are in full swing for the next edition of PaintExpo, which was unable to take place in 2020 due to the corona pandemic. Leipziger Messe, which took over PaintExpo from FairFair as of 1 December 2020, is planning PaintExpo as a face-to-face trade fair in Karlsruhe from 26 to 29 April 2022. Registration for exhibitors is now open. In 2018, PaintExpo firstly established itself as a trade fair for industrial coating technology, with 537 exhibitors from 29 countries and 11,790 trade visitors from 88 countries. One in three exhibitors came from abroad. Next year, PaintExpo will once again offer a global showcase for the industrial coating industry with numerous market and technology leaders in three exhibition halls to exchange information about the latest applications, future technologies and trends in the field of industrial coating. It will cover the entire range of international products and services in the supply chain. On top of being able to experience numerous new products and advancements from exhibitors in the coating technology industry live at the trade fair, participants can also expect additional new features. Finding contacts within the industry will be easier and more actively promoted: In the run-up to the trade fair, visitors and exhibitors can arrange meetings online using a new planning tool. Furthermore, a new digital exhibitor and product directory will be published on the PaintExpo website in advance of the trade fair.
