7th Leading International Trade Fair for Industrial Coating Technology from 17 through 20 April 2018 in Karlsruhe (Germany) with More Exhibition Floor Space

Strong Demand for Booth Locations at PaintExpo 2018

Oberboihingen, November 2016  Although it is only been seven months since PaintExpo 2016 closed with record breaking results, promoters FairFair GmbH are already able to report lively demand for exhibition floor space at the upcoming, leading international trade fair for industrial coating technology: at the beginning of November 2016, 170 companies had already made firm bookings for their booth locations at PaintExpo from the 17th through the 20th of April, 2018. With roughly 75,000 square feet, net exhibition floor space already amounts to more than 50% of the level reached at the last event. And thus for PaintExpo 2018, booth floor space offerings will be significantly increased.

PaintExpo 2016 received top scores and set new standards with regard to exhibitor and visitor numbers, as well as internationalism. With 10,522 visitors from 74 countries, the leading international trade fair for industrial coating technology observed an increase of 14.8%. And it's no wonder, because with its comprehensive overview of the industrial coating technologies market, PaintExpo is meanwhile the number one information and procurement platform for users from all over the world. 'PaintExpo is theglobal showcase of the painting industry, which makes it an absolute must for us. It's the most effective way to present our product range and new developments to international expert visitors, and we'll exhibit again in 2018 as a result', explains Andrea Ortelli, export manager for Italian paint manufacturer Arsonsisi. And the fact that he's not alone with this assessment is already demonstrated by the star studded exhibitor list 17 months before PaintExpo 2018 opens its doors. Roughly 170 companies from 15 countries have already made firm bookings and secured ideal boothlocations. They include nearly all of the national and international heavyweights from the various exhibition segments.

PaintExpo 2018 with Additional Exhibition Hall With roughly 75,000 square feet, net exhibition floor space already amounts to more than 50% of the level reached at the last event. This extremely strong, early demand for booth floor space illustrates the importance of PaintExpo amongst the suppliers of products and services from the field of industrial coating technology. 'We're of course very pleased that the companies are deciding to book so early, and it provides us with the opportunity of clearing the path for further growth. That's why we've increased exhibition floor space offerings to include an additional hall. This is being very well received by the exhibitors so that we've been able to distribute visitor magnets uniformly throughout all of the halls' reports Jurgen Haufmann, managing director of FairFair GmbH.

Procurement Platform for Future-Oriented Painting and Coating
Worldwide demand for optimised painting and coating solutions speaks infavour of strong further development of PaintExpo where visitor numbers areconcerned as well. 'Regardless of where products need to be painted, usersfrom the various regions around the world are generally placing ever higherdemands on finished goods. In addition to optimised quality andproductivity, this also involves more efficient use of materials andresources, as well as sustainability. Beyond this, ever smaller lot sizesand increasing individualisation necessitate more flexible solutions in thefield of coating technology. New challenges for coating job-shops and companies with in-house painting operations are also resulting from the use of new materials, for example fibrous composite materials for lightweight parts, as well as the use of various materials within a single finished product. 'Thanks to an exhibition programme which is focused exclusively on liquid painting, powder coating and coil coating, as well as market-driven, representative and future-oriented exhibitor offerings, PaintExpo 2018 will be a point of departure for the visitors in their search for suitable solutions based on products and processes', states Jurgen Haufmann with confidence.
The exhibition programme covers liquid painting, powder coating and coil coating systems, application systems and spray guns, liquid paints and powdered enamels, automation and conveyor technology, cleaning and pre-treatment, drying and curing, environmental technology, pneumatics, compressed air supply and exhaust purification, water treatment, recycling and disposal, accessories, measuring and test technology, quality assurance, paint stripping, job-shop coating, services and technical literature. Beyond this, downstream process steps such as printing and packaging are covered as well.
