At the cutting edge
News, interviews and reports concerning all aspects of PaintExpo.
PaintExpo will be returning from 26 to 29 April 2022 as a showcase for innovations, applications, future technologies and trends spanning all aspects of coating technology after it had to be cancelled last year due to the Corona pandemic. Preparations are going very promisingly for the upcoming edition of the world's leading trade fair for industrial coating technology in Karlsruhe, Germany. With around six months to go before the start of the international trade fair, more than 90 per cent of the exhibition space has already been rented out.
Preparations are in full swing for the next edition of PaintExpo, the world's leading trade fair for industrial coating technology, which was unable to take place in 2020 due to the corona pandemic. Leipziger Messe, which took over PaintExpo from FairFair GmbH 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 open and receiving a great response from the industry.
On 1 December 2020, Leipziger Messe took over PaintExpo from FairFair GmbH. Since the fair was first established in 2006, PaintExpo has taken place every two years at Messe Karlsruhe. PaintExpo has become the world's leading trade fair for industrial coating technology with 537 exhibitors from 29 countries and 11,790 trade visitors from 88 countries attending the last event. The next PaintExpo is planned for 26-29 April 2022 in Karlsruhe.
Due to the still fragile corona situation, stricter hygiene and distancing regulations for trade fairs in Baden-Württemberg and sustained restrictions on international travel, PaintExpo 2020 will be cancelled after all. The next world’s leading trade fair for industrial coating technology will take place as scheduled in 2022.

FairFair GmbH, the organizer of PaintExpo, has decided to hold the world's leading trade fair for industrial coating technology at a later date in 2020 due to current developments in connection with the corona virus Sars-CoV-2.
