European Coatings Congress 2011 to Highlight Cutting Edge of Coatings Industry

Published on 2010-12-03. Author : SpecialChem

The European Coatings Congress and European Coatings Show in 2011 will again live up to their leading international role in all segments of the production of high-grade and competitive coatings, paints, sealants, construction chemicals and adhesives. Four months before its start at the end of March 2011, the European Coatings Show has already exceeded the size of the previous event in 2009 - and is still growing!

Mobile Services for the European Coatings Show

Visitors with an iPhone, iPod touch or iPad can plan their visit to the exhibition and congress conveniently wherever they are using the updated ECS app. Besides creating a personal diary and interaction with the companies, the ECS app now supports the iPad and offers the possibility of being kept up to date on new exhibitors and including them in the visitor's own contacts. The EC MARKET NAVIGATOR contains hundreds of addresses in the coatings industry. Whether new raw materials, production technology or laboratory and testing and measuring equipment, all the major international suppliers are directly at hand here in the true sense of the word.

The congress traditionally begins a day before the exhibition: the congress runs from 28 - 30 March and the exhibition from 29 - 31 March 2011. The close proximity of the two events in the Exhibition Centre Nuremberg creates many synergies and networking opportunities.

The eleventh edition of the European Coatings Congress again promises to be a highlight. Many abstracts have been submitted to the European Coatings Congress committee over the past weeks in response to the Call for Papers. These proposals for papers from experts all over the world have been examined and selected according to their topicality and a congress programme has been compiled to the usual excellent standard.

Congress participants can visit a variety of lectures at a total of 25 sessions. The programme ranges from Architectural Coatings, Wood Coatings, Protective Coatings, Automobile Coatings, Smart Coatings, Sustainability & Biobased Coatings, Powder Coatings, Marine Coatings, Waterborne Coatings, Pigments, Production Processes, Radiation Curing, Functional Materials, Novel Materials, Polyurethanes and Nanotechnology to Adhesives & Sealants, Construction Chemicals and Printing Inks.

The best presentation at the congress will naturally receive the European Coatings Award again in 2011 - the winner can look forward to a prestigious sculpture and prize money of 2,000 EUR.
