PaintExpo and SLP - The Association of Industrial Coating from Poland agree on Partnership

The world's leading trade fair for industrial coating technology, PaintExpo, and SLP - The Association of Industrial Coating (Stowarzyszenie Lakiernictwa Przemyslowego) from Poland are laying the foundation for a long-term cooperation with this agreement. The aim of the cooperation is to forge closer links with the Polish painting technology industry in order to create sustainable added value for exhibitors and trade visitors at PaintExpo.

"In recent years, Poland has developed into an important player in the European painting technology industry and thus has a strategically important significance for PaintExpo. That is why we are very pleased to now have a strong partner at our side with the SLP association, which actively promotes the industrial painting technology industry in Poland. With its joint focus on industry development, the association is an ideal partner for the continued success of PaintExpo," reports Gerhard Ohmacht, Executive Director Industrial Fairs at Leipziger Messe. "The partnership with the world's leading trade fair PaintExpo will enable the SLP association to expand its expertise and networks on an international level and represent the interests of the Polish painting technology industry on a global stage."

The cooperation kicks off with the "E-Congres Paint Poland 2023", which will take place from 18 to 20 September 2023 in Uniejów, Poland. PaintExpo will be represented at the congress with a stand. In return, SLP will present itself at PaintExpo 2024.

Poland was - after Germany, Switzerland, Italy, France and Austria - the sixth strongest visitor country at the last edition of PaintExpo in 2022. A total of more than 9,000 trade visitors from 57 countries were on site.

For the next edition of PaintExpo from 9 to 12 April 2024 in Karlsruhe, six Polish exhibitors have already secured their stand spaces. These are the paint system manufacturers ECO-LINE, Filters Engineering and FILTRILO, the filter manufacturer AEREM Industry and the paint producers Consus and NOVOL.
