PaintExpo was a success - date set for the next edition in 2024

PaintExpo ended on 29 April 2022 with highly satisfied faces among exhibitors and visitors. After a break of four years due to Covid, the restart was a great success and the team of PaintExpo was able to deliver a convincing event from start to finish.

At the world's leading trade fair for industrial coating technology, the approximately 430 exhibitors from 27 countries showcased numerous groundbreaking innovations, intelligent further developments and specialised services. The range of products and services covered the entire spectrum of the industry - from surface treatment, coatings and painting systems to final quality assurance.

Current topics such as sustainability in the use of resources, increased efficiency and, of course, the many product premieres were particularly in the focus of the visitors, who were interested in all the different kinds of industrial coating solutions - from wet painting and powder coating to coil coating. The sectors represented among the visitors ranged from contract coating, the automotive industry and vehicle construction to machine and plant construction, the plastics processing industry and the electrical and furniture industry.

The exhibitors drew a positive conclusion from their participation in the fair. Promising new customer contacts and concrete project agreements dominated the discussions at the exhibition stands. In some cases, orders were even placed directly on site.

In the spirit of ‘after the fair is before the fair’, the date for the next PaintExpo in 2024 has already been set. The world's leading trade fair for industrial coating technology will then take place as usual at Messe Karlsruhe from 9 to 12 April 2024.
