Vincentz Network, organizer of the European Coatings Show, and NürnbergMesse, jointly announced on Monday that the European Coatings Show has been canceled.

The exhibition for the international paint and coatings industry was rescheduled for Sept. 14-16 after being first postponed because of the COVID-19 pandemic. Officials said that the cancellation decision comes after close consultation with exhibitors and industry representatives, citing international travel as the main concern.

Vincentz Network, organizer of the European Coatings Show, and NürnbergMesse, jointly announced on Monday that the European Coatings Show has been canceled.

“The pandemic situation in Germany is stabilizing and the political indicators are in place for holding trade shows in Bavaria, but, regretfully, the next edition of ECS cannot be held before March 2023,” commented Alexander Mattausch, Director Exhibitions, NürnbergMesse.

“At the moment, the positive outlook is not yet universal, which means international travel is being resumed more slowly than we would prefer. But for the kind of European Coatings Show we know and appreciate—a global industry gathering of exhibitors and visitors from more than 120 countries—faster resumption would be essential.”

The next show, organizers say, is slated for March 28-30, 2023, resuming the show’s regular schedule.

“For the European Coatings Show, the exhibition venue in Nuremberg becomes home to the global coatings industry every second year. Because of the continuing travel restrictions, we cannot be sure to be able to uphold that undertaking at present,” added Amanda Beyer, Director Event Management Vincentz Network.

“In order to hold a leading exhibition on the scale of the ECS, the decision would have to be taken now. In the interests of the industry, with its members operating on a global scale, we have heavy-heartedly decided to call the show off this year. We are pleased to be able to offer an alternative in the form of the digital Congress in September, where the international industry can meet at a virtual level to share knowledge and cultivate contacts. We will gather in Nuremberg again in March 2023 and catch up on everything we have been unable to do in recent months, we are looking forward to this opportunity to see each other again in this way.”
