This year’s event set new standards with over 1 300 visitors, more than 100 exhibitors, 35 countries and 32 speakers. During our visit to the event the overall feedback from exhibitors were mostly positive.
Exhibitors acknowledged the overall positive energy at the event; however, international economic pressure remained a concern. The oil price pushing ever closer to the $80 a barrel mark is worrying. The talk on the exhibition floor earmarked this as one of the biggest risks to the coatings industry for the remainder of the year.
Also talked about amongst exhibitors was that the event was sold out. The exhibition floor was packed with suppliers, and service providers throughout the industry as well as a good contingent of international exhibitors. It provided the perfect opportunity for delegates to build business relationships and explore new technologies entering the coatings industry.
