Preparations for the next edition of the world's leading trade fair for industrial painting technology from April 9 to 12, 2024 in Karlsruhe are in full swing: around six months before the start of the trade fair, PaintExpo has a very good registration status. 90% of the exhibition space of the previous event has already been rented. An innovation is also planned: With the "Digital Theme Routes" offer, exhibitors can draw attention to their topics on the focal points of sustainability, careers and exhibitor promotions in the run-up to the trade fair in the exhibitor and product directory on the PaintExpo website. Currently, 340 exhibitors have registered for PaintExpo 2024. "We are on the right track and are looking forward with great anticipation to the upcoming edition of the world's leading trade fair for industrial painting technology. We are very satisfied with the current level of registrations. So anyone who wants to be at PaintExpo 2024 should not hesitate much longer to secure a booth space," says Project Director Mariella Riedel, who has been in charge of PaintExpo since April this year and is responsible for several international trade shows at Leipziger Messe. Interested companies can still register for PaintExpo 2024. Exhibitor application forms are available from the project team. The registration period runs until November 30, 2023. Apart from Germany, most exhibitors currently come from Italy, Turkey and Switzerland. However, the spectrum of exhibitors goes far beyond Europe: For example, companies from the USA or China are also represented. The proportion of international exhibitors - as of today - is over 40%.
