“We’re back again”
Visit to the European Coating Show (ECS)
(mud) – “The ECS, the European Coating Show, represents a significant platform for us,” says Dr. Silke-Nicola Trzaska, “because it allows us to identify new suppliers, maintain existing business relationships, and collaborate successfully with our customers.” This assessment is shared by the visitors of this year’s ECS.
In fact, the ECS in Nuremberg receives considerable attention: With an exhibition area of more than 37,000 square meters, 1016 exhibitors presented their products at the end of March. One of those stands belonged to WTH GmbH from Stade, supervised by experts Wolf-Jusuf and Dr. Trzaska.
The exhibitors, of whom more than 700 came from abroad, welcomed a total of around 24,600 visitors, of which 89 percent were decision-makers from their respective companies. Every second visitor was hoping for “information about innovations,” and 43 percent came to “maintain business contacts.”
Significantly more than a third of the visitors sought “exchange of experiences and information.” Just under a third specifically and without beating around the bush wanted new business contacts. They were all interested in product developments as well as data and facts that they could use for their investment and purchasing decisions.
The range of information was extremely diverse: The exhibitors provided information on product groups such as paint and printing ink raw materials, adhesive raw materials and chemical precursors, laboratory and production technology, testing and measurement technology, services and application technology, as well as environmental and occupational safety.
In addition, visitors to the fair were able to obtain extensive insights from 143 lectures and 158 product presentations, including findings, data, and facts. According to a survey by the ECS trade fair management, the bottom line was: “99 percent of the visitors were satisfied with their visit to the European Coating Show 2023.” And 98 percent of the visitors would recommend the event. WTH experts Dr. Silke Nicola Trzaska and Cutian Wolf-Jusuf share this sentiment: “We would gladly participate again next time.”
