Great Response from the Industry for PaintExpo 2022 - Registration for Exhibitors is Now Open

PaintExpo World's Leading Trade Fair for Industrial Coating Technology (26 to 29 April 2022)

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.

In 2018 PaintExpo firmly established itself as the world's leading trade fair for industrial coating technology, with 537 exhibitors from 29 countries and 11,790 trade visitors from 88 countries. One in three exhibitors came from abroad. In addition to German exhibitors, Italy, Switzerland, France, Austria, Belgium, the Netherlands, Turkey, Poland, Great Britain and Denmark were all well represented.

Once again PaintExpo will offer a global showcase for the industrial coating industry from 26 to 29 April 2022: "At next year's PaintExpo, the Who's Who of the industry will present itself with numerous market and technology leaders in three exhibition halls to exchange information about the latest applications, future technologies and trends in the field of industrial coating. It will cover the entire range of international products and services in the supply chain for industrial coating technology. PaintExpo serves as the trend indicator for visitors both from Germany and from abroad - and is thus once again a must-attend event for the industry," says Markus Geisenberger, Chief Executive Officer of Leipziger Messe.

Registration Open for Exhibitors - Early-Bird Rates Until End of June

Registration for PaintExpo 2022 has begun: "We are excited by the level of interest from our exhibitors. We were able to welcome the first 100 companies as exhibitors shortly after registration opened. The industry is eager to get together again", reports Ivonne Simons, PaintExpo's newly appointed Project Director. Ivonne Simons has worked for Leipziger Messe for more than 20 years and managed several B2B trade fairs similar to PaintExpo, featuring a clearly defined target group and a tailor-made concept.

Companies wishing to be a part of PaintExpo 2022 can still benefit from early-bird rates until the end of June 2021. Registration forms for exhibitors can be downloaded from the PaintExpo website. The registration deadline is 30 November 2021.

Anticipation Among Exhibitors - Numerous New Products on Show

In addition to innovative SMEs, next year's leading trade fair for industrial coating technology will once again feature market and technology leaders as well as global players in the industry - these include exhibitors J. Wagner and FreiLacke, to name but a few. Gema Switzerland, a leading international supplier in the field of electrostatic powder coatings, has also already booked its stand space for PaintExpo 2022: According to Gema, the world's leading trade fair for industrial coating technology is one of the most important opportunities to make new contacts and get involved in inspirational expert discussions. The company will be showcasing numerous new developments and innovative products to touch and feel on-site. Gema state that they are especially looking forward to face-to-face contact to visitors at the trade fair.

SAMES KREMLIN, developer and manufacturer of coating, powdering and bonding equipment, will also be at the leading international trade fair in April 2022 in Karlsruhe. "As a meeting place for everyone working in industrial coating and surfacing technology, PaintExpo has been an absolute must right from the beginning. The format offers us regular exchange with our partners, the opportunity to showcase innovative products and technologies, as well as to sound out potential new possibilities for development. We are glad to once again be able to benefit from the personal contact we have so sorely missed", explains Sandra Dostert, Marketing Manager for the DACH region at SAMES KREMLIN. Visitors can look forward to new technologies at their stand, including a new range of powder applications, innovative applicators and the PaintSave System, which helps avoid wasting materials in colour changes.

New Digital Tools on Show for Participants

On top of being able to experience numerous new products and advancements from exhibitors in the coating technology industry live at the trade fair, participants can also expect additional new features. Finding contacts within in the industry will be easier and more actively promoted: In the run-up to the trade fair, visitors and exhibitors can arrange meetings online using a new planning tool, thus facilitating even more targeted discussions at PaintExpo. Furthermore, a new digital exhibitor and product directory will be published on the PaintExpo website in advance of the trade fair next year, featuring company information as well as introducing exhibitors' products.
