New date for European Coatings Show in autumn 2021

The European Coatings Show (ECS), the leading trade fair of the international coatings industry, has been postponed. Instead of holding ECS 2021 in March next year as planned, the organizers have rescheduled it for 14-16 September 2021 because of the ongoing coronavirus pandemic and the associated travel restrictions.

Following close consultation with exhibitors and industry representatives, the organizers of the fair have decided to postpone the European Coatings Show 2021 from spring until autumn. The ECS is a global industry gathering. For the previous show in 2019, exhibitors and trade visitors travelled to Nuremberg from more than 120 countries to develop and expand their international business relationships. These relationships are vital for the coatings sector, which is characterized by global supply chains and large, globally networked companies. Unfortunately, the ongoing coronavirus pandemic and the likelihood that the associated travel restrictions will continue mean that in March the ECS would not be able to meet this target to the extent that the organizers and exhibitors would have liked.

The alternative date of the European Coatings Show is thus 14-16. September 2021, while the location remains Nuremberg, Germany. We firmly believe that the health situation will calm down by then. Team Calcit will be unconditionally ready to sincerely welcome all our partners and those who are yet to become one at our exhibition stand again in September next year.
