Excellent Level of Registrations for PaintExpo 2024

Preparations are in full swing for the next edition of the world's leading trade fair for industrial coating technology from 9 to 12 April 2024 in Karlsruhe: Around six months before the start of PaintExpo, a large number of exhibitors have registered and 90 percent of the exhibition space of the last event has already been rented. There will also be a new feature: In advance of the trade fair, exhibitors can benefit from “digital themed routes” by using the exhibitor and product directory on the PaintExpo website to draw additional attention to topics revolving around sustainability, career and exhibitor events.

Currently, 340 exhibitors have registered for PaintExpo 2024. "We are right on track and looking forward very much to the next edition of the world's leading trade fair for industrial coating technology. We are very pleased with the current level of registrations. Anyone who wants to exhibit at PaintExpo 2024 should register as soon as possible to secure a stand space," says Project Director Mariella Riedel, who took on responsibility for PaintExpo in April of this year and manages several international trade fairs for Leipziger Messe.

Interested companies can still register for PaintExpo 2024. The application documents for exhibitors are available from the project team. The registration period runs until 30 November 2023.

Global Showcase for the Latest Trends in Industrial Coating

Alongside companies from Germany, the majority of exhibitors are currently from Italy, Turkey and Switzerland. However, the event attracts exhibitors from far beyond Europe. Companies from countries such as the USA and China will also be there. As things stand today, the proportion of international exhibitors is over 40 per cent. “The high level of international registrations is proof that PaintExpo will once again be a global showcase for the latest trends in industrial coating. The who's who of the industry with their market and technology leaders will be there again,” explains Project Director Mariella Riedel. Numerous first-time exhibitors will be celebrating their premiere at PaintExpo in April of next year, including B6 Innovations from Germany, Botko from Belgium, Mirodur from Italy and Rhopoint Instruments from Germany.

For the first time since 2012, Harter is back as an exhibitor at PaintExpo. Jonas List from Harter's technical sales department explains why the company is returning to the world's leading trade fair for industrial coating technology: “We have recently received a lot of enquiries from plant manufacturers who want to offer their customers energy-saving and at the same time efficient dryer systems. This has prompted us to show our presence in the field of paint drying again. Exhibiting at PaintExpo is a wonderful opportunity to enter into personal discussions with interested parties – about the numerous possibilities and advantages of our state-subsidised drying technology.” Harter has been manufacturing heat pump-based drying systems for more than 30 years – and when it comes to energy saving, the company has been at the forefront with its condensation dryers from the very beginning.

J. Wagner has exhibited at every PaintExpo since the first edition in 2006 – the company has also secured its stand for the upcoming world's leading trade fair for industrial coating technology. “PaintExpo is an irreplaceable industry meeting place for us, where we present our products, solutions and services. Personal contact with existing and potential customers and business partners is enormously important for us, as we can continuously improve through mutual exchange. PaintExpo is one of the highlights of our trade fair year, as all the relevant players in the surface industry gather here. The internationality of the visitors is an important aspect for us as a global company,” reports Markus Sonnenstatter, CSO Industrial Solutions at J. Wagner. The manufacturer will be showing innovations in the area of wet coatings and powder, with a focus on sustainability and energy efficiency. At the J. Wagner stand, visitors can experience a wide range – from manual equipment to fully automated systems.

Digital Themed Routes: A New Feature at PaintExpo 2024

Alongside the numerous innovations being showcased by exhibitors from the industrial coating industry, attendees of the trade fair can look forward to an additional new feature: Digital themed routes will be introduced for the first time at PaintExpo. This new service focuses on sustainability, career and exhibitor events and enables exhibitors to present their content relevant to these themes in the exhibitor and product directory on the PaintExpo website in advance of the trade fair. Visitors can then use this additional digital feature while they are at PaintExpo to target specific products or services along the themed routes.
