All signs indicate that PaintExpo will take place this year.

The world’s leading trade fair for industrial coating technologies will be held at the Karlsruhe Exhibition Centre, Germany, with more than 500 national and international exhibitors from October 12-15.

“Some of the exhibitors have had to cancel due to scheduling conflicts arising as a result of the postponement from April to October, but more than 500 exhibiting companies from Germany and abroad will be represented in Karlsruhe,” says Jürgen Haußmann, managing director of private trade fair promoters FairFair GmbH. “We’re very pleased that planning security has once again been established for exhibitors and visitors, as well as for our business partners.”

According to organizers, a comprehensive hygiene concept will ensure best possible safety for exhibitors and visitors.


The increased confidence in the October dates is thanks to the relaxation of corona restrictions and positive developments in recent weeks.

The trade fair organizer and his team are confident that they’re well prepared for the event.

“Amongst other things, the concept ensures that even on busy days at least four square metres of floor space are available per visitor,” adds Jürgen Haußmann. Further aspects include strictly online ticket sales, as well as online redemption and registration of admission coupons.

“In accordance with the security concept, box office ticket sales will not be offered.”

The range of products and services offered by the exhibitors covers the entire process chain for liquid painting, powder coating and coil coating. Focal topics include, to mention just a few, the digital transformation, automation solutions and simplified robot programming, more efficient use of energy and resources, as well as the metallization of surfaces.
