PaintExpo – the European Platform for Industrial Coating Technology

Next PaintExpo: 13 through 16 April 2010 in Karlsruhe, Germany

(PresseBox) (Oberboihingen, ) PaintExpo is Europe’s number one trade fair for suppliers and users of industrial coating technology. As a result, organizer Jürgen Haußmann expects the number of exhibitors strictly from the field of industrial coating technology to exceed the figure of 285 achieved for the last event at the upcoming PaintExpo which will take place in Karlsruhe (Germany) from the 13th through the 16th of April, 2010. More than 50% of the exhibitors from 2008 have already confirmed their participation at PaintExpo 2010.

5924 visitors from 43 countries gathered information regarding comprehensive Europe-wide offerings ranging from pre-treatment right on up to final inspection for industrial coating technology at the last PaintExpo – a 20% increase. Roughly 43% of the visitors travelled distances of greater than 300 kilometres to the Karlsruhe Exhibition Centre, and 18.7% came from outside of Germany. More than 63% visited the event for the first time. But not only the number of visitors and the level of internationalism were decisive for the success of the specialised trade fair, above average decision making authority demonstrated by the visitors also played an important role - more than 94% of PaintExpo’s visitors are involved in purchasing and procurement decisions. “For us, PaintExpo is the number one trade fair in Europe, and it’s the ideal framework for presenting our top quality products and technologies to a broad ranging audience”, explains Frank Wolf, Senior Vice President for Marketing & Business Development Industrial Solutions at J. Wagner GmbH regarding the coating technology trade fair in Karlsruhe.

PaintExpo 2010 – More Comprehensive, In-Depth Offerings for Coating Technology
Industrial coating technology is the strongest sector in the overall field of surface finishing with a market share of 40 to 45%. With 285 exhibitors exclusively from this sector – representing a growth rate of 18% as compared with the initial event – PaintExpo already established itself in 2008 as the European industry platform. Thanks to its clear-cut focus, the event makes it possible for suppliers to present their products and services efficiently in a targeted fashion, and users are able to quickly gather comprehensive information. “By further expansion in the areas of pre-treatment, automation and paints, we’ll be able to match up offerings presented at PaintExpo 2010 to current market issues to an even greater extent, and thus improve event quality for the visitors once again”, reports Jürgen Haußmann, managing director of organizers FairFair GmbH. It can thus be assumed that the next event will again be distinguished by further growth – above all in light of the fact that more than 50% of the exhibitors from 2008 have already confirmed their participation. The next leading European trade fair for industrial coating technology will take place again in Karlsruhe from the 13th through the 16th of April, 2010.
