14 - 17 April 2026 in Karlsruhe PaintExpo



10/04/2024 PaintExpo

Trends, premieres, networking

A great, work-intensive atmosphere, concentrated expertise and the entire spectrum of the industry enable intensive technical discussions at the world's leading trade fair for industrial coating technology.

Business cards are exchanged, LinkedIn accounts are linked and concrete projects are presented: The first two days of PaintExpo have delivered what they promised. The trade fair stands of the 430 exhibitors offer a wide range of world premieres, latest trends and new technologies for the sustainable and energy-efficient coating processes of the future.

This year, some exhibitors and visitors will also have the opportunity to share their experiences of PaintExpo in front of the camera as part of the new media format - the "Espresso Talk". The trade fair organisers will then capture the opinions of industry specialists at the exact moment when a good cup of espresso finds its way into the cup. It's another option to keep the conversation going and then take a quick breath with a little caffeine kick.

Until 12 April, all those involved in painting technology still have the opportunity to experience the entire spectrum of the industry - from surface treatment, paints and coating technology to final quality assurance. For optimal planning and better orientation, it's a good idea to use the PaintExpo app. It offers trade visitors an overview of products, exhibitors and innovations in advance, as well as the opportunity to bookmark their favourites.
