PaintExpo, the world’s leading trade fair for industrial coating technology, will now take place from Oct. 12-15 at the Karlsruhe Trade Fair Center, Germany, postponing from its usual April dates in reaction to the spread of the coronavirus.

“We are very pleased to have found a new date for PaintExpo 2020 so quickly in agreement with Messe Karlsruhe and the exhibitor advisory board,” says Jürgen Haußmann, managing director of FairFair GmbH. “Providing planning security for our customers, partners and the entire industry is a top priority for us.”

The organizer also stated that the original contracts with approximately 540 participating companies from 26 countries are still valid without restriction for the new date, as are visitor tickets.

The expo is just one of many conferences and events that are either cancelling or postponing shows that are scheduled in the next couple of months. The AEC show in Edmonton, Alta. just announced that it is postponing from the end of April to the fall, announcing the specific dates in the next few days (click here to see related article).

With its exhibition portfolio covering the entire process chains for wet painting, powder coating and coil coating, PaintExpo is the world’s largest and most important trade fair in the field of industrial coating. It enables contract coaters and in-house coating companies from all industries to find out in detail about the latest developments, trends and technologies for coating components and substrates made from all kinds of materials.
