NUREMBERG—The world's largest coatings event has closed on a high note in Germany, drawing nearly 29,000 people from 42 countries.

The European Coatings Show and Congress shattered attendance, exhibitor and delegate records over its three-day run April 21-23.

The biennial show notched 1,024 exhibitors and 28,500 trade visitors. The European Coatings Congress, held at the same time, recorded a record 700 delegates.

The 2015 European Coatings Show drew 28,500 visitors and 1,000 exhibitors from 42 countries.

Even strike-related train cancellations throughout Germany did not derail the numbers for the show, which also covers paints, varnishes, adhesives, sealants and construction chemicals.

The event was spread over seven halls in the Exhibition Centre Nuremberg. The three show dailies, available for download, captured all the action.

International Presence

The show's exhibitors hailed from 42 countries, and attendees reflected nearly 110 nationalities, underscoring the event's "position as an international meeting place for the global coatings industry," organizers said.

The European Coatings Congress also drew delegates from 42 countries, yielding 144 presentations by scientists and researchers "focused on the production of high-quality coatings, paints, sealants, construction chemicals and adhesives," organizers said.

Products and presentations "showed the diverse requirements met by modern coatings solutions: functional, safe, environmentally friendly, and firmly committed to the idea of sustainability as bio-based products," sponsors said.
