A new date has been set for the 17th edition of the Abrafati trade fair, which combines the International Coating Congress and the International Exhibition for Suppliers of the Coatings Industry.
The leading coating industry event in Latin America will take place from June 21 to 23 next year at São Paulo Expo, São Paulo (Brazil). Originally scheduled for the end of 2021, the main event for the paint and coatings industry in Latin America, and one of the most important of its kind in the world, has been postponed, so that it can be held with maximum security in terms of health. and with the level of quality that has always characterized it.
“Although there has been a fairly significant improvement in epidemiological conditions in recent weeks, uncertainties and insecurity still hung over all audiences,” said Abrafati executive chairman Luiz Cornacchioni. “We were constantly at work evaluating scenarios and making every effort to obtain alternative dates. A few days ago a postponement opportunity arose and we decided to conduct a broad survey of exhibitors and potential visitors, which showed us that the best way forward would really be to move the show to June. .
More time to take care of all the preparations
Thus, in addition to the additional security in terms of health and vaccine concerns, exhibitors will have more time to take care of all the preparations for their participation. Another important benefit is the more plausible possibility that there will be a significant presence of foreign speakers and visitors, given the relaxation and / or elimination of restrictions currently in place.
The aim of the Abrafati trade fair is to enable the entire market – which is currently experiencing substantial expansion – to know and discuss key innovations in raw materials, formulations, processes and technologies in the processing industry. paint and coatings, as well as the quality, performance, durability and functionality of paints designed for a wide variety of applications. The show will also be a unique networking opportunity, as the region’s premier event where all major industry professionals can come together.
