Topic: 1st PaintExpo Eurasia 2011 in Istanbul (Turkey)

PaintExpo Eurasia will take place at the Istanbul Expo Center for the first time from the 6th through the 8th of October. 2011. The Eurasian offshoot of the leading international trade fair for industrial coating technology will be organised by FairFair GmbH in collaboration with Turkish partner Artkim Fuarcilik, and held concurrent to the TurkCoat trade fair for paints and chemicals.

As is also the case in various other countries on the Eastern Mediterranean and Black Seas, and in the Near and Middle East, the Turkish economy is running at full bore. As a result, manufacturing companies from this region are being faced with new challenges – where industrial coatings are involved as well. In-house painting operations and job-shop coaters are being required to apply high quality coatings more ecologically, faster and less expensively. In order to meet these heightened requirements, demand is continuously growing for world class coating technology.

With its complete and fully representative offerings in the fields of liquid painting, powder coating and coil coating, PaintExpo covers all of the relevant steps for all aspects of the coating process. “For us, promoting PaintExpo Eurasia in Istanbul is a logical consequence of continuously increasing demand for coating technology by means of which stricter requirements regarding quality, flexibility, efficiency and environmental compatibility can be fulfilled. And we’ve found an experienced partner for this venture in Artkim Fuarcilik, Turkish promoter of trade fairs for paints and chemicals”, explains Jürgen Haußmann, managing director of FairFair GmbH who has been organising the leading international trade fair for industrial coating technology in Karlsruhe since 2006.

Offerings covered by the premiere of PaintExpo Eurasia from 6 through 8 October 2011 include systems and equipment for liquid painting, powder coating and coil coating, application systems and spray guns, liquid paints and powdered enamels, automation and conveyor technology, cleaning and pre-treatment, drying and curing, environmental technology, compressed air supply and exhaust purification, water treatment, recycling and disposal, accessories, measuring and test technology, quality assurance, paint stripping, job-shop coating, services and technical literature.

The Expo Istanbul Center, located in close proximity to Atatürk International Airport where Europe and Asia meet, is considered the most important trade fair location in Turkey and its neighbouring countries. It facilitates easy access to the markets in this booming region for exhibitors, thus making it possible to establish efficient new business relationships – to customers as well as to marketing partners. Furthermore, interesting synergies will result from the concurrently held TurkCoat trade fair, the most important event for paints, enamels, adhesives, sealants, construction chemistry and production equipment in Turkey, Eastern Europe and the Middle East.
