Earlier this month, FairFair GmbH (Oberboihingen, Germany)—organizer of international industrial coatings technology trade fair PaintExpo—announced that this year’s trade show would be postponed to a later date due to the current developments involving COVID-19.

The decision arrives after FairFair, along with the exhibitor advisory board and Messe Karlsruhe reevaluated the coronavirus situation, adopting health measures recommended by the Robert Koch Institute for large-scale events.

Had the group chosen to continue with the slated show schedule, recommended health measures would have caused severe restrictions both for exhibitors and visitors, reports PaintExpo.

"We are very pleased to have found a new date for PaintExpo 2020 so quickly in agreement with Messe Karlsruhe and the exhibitor advisory board,” says Jürgen Haußmann, Managing Director of FairFair GmbH. “Providing planning security for our customers, partners and the entire industry is a top priority for us.”

PaintExpo 2020 is now slated to take place Oct. 12-15 at the Karlsruhe Trade Fair Center in Karlsruhe, Germany.

The organizer also reports that original contracts and visitor tickets are still valid without restriction for the new date. The organizer still expects that approximately 540 participating companies from 26 countries will be present.
