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.

“Together with our exhibitors and partners, we had hoped to hold PaintExpo 2020 in October with corresponding health and safety measures for all participants. However, the circumstances have changed in the meantime, amongst other things due to new regulations for holding trade fairs in Baden-Württemberg, so that we now have to cancel the event after all,” reports Jürgen Haußmann, managing director of event promoters FairFair GmbH. This decision was taken on the basis of a survey of all PaintExpo 2020 exhibitors, a large number of whom were also against postponing the trade fair once again.

Many companies are currently struggling with the economic impact of the corona pandemic and trade fair participation is thus not at the top of their priority list. Beyond this, health protection and preventing the spread of infection continue to play a central role as well. As a result, face-to-face contact and travel are being restricted to absolutely necessary interaction. What’s more, companies prohibit trade fair visits in some cases and international travel is still subject to strict limits. The requirements stipulated in the planned “Corona Regulation for Trade Fairs” issued by Baden-Württemberg’s state government are a further significant reason for deciding against holding PaintExpo 2020.

“We now intend to devote all of our energy to preparing the next regularly scheduled PaintExpo in order to provide the industry sector with the best possible conditions for successful trade fair participation.” The next world’s leading trade fair for industrial coating technology will take place at the Karlsruhe Exhibition Centre from the 26th through 29th of April, 2022.
