Following the success of our inaugural Biobased Coatings Europe conference in June 2018 which brought over 100 senior level attendees to Antwerp, we are excited to be hosting Biobased Coatings Europe 2019 on 19th & 20th June in Düsseldorf, Germany. The two day conference will once again bring together senior executives and experts from the coatings industry, policy makers, consultants, technology innovators and leading market analysts to discuss the latest challenges and developments within the industry and engage in excellent networking opportunities.
The two day event will give you an insight to the industry`s latest policy evaluations and, while focusing largely on developments within the coatings industry in Europe, will also concentrate on updates and future forecasts on supply and demand of the key world markets. By highlighting the sector’s current major challenges and opportunities the conference will provide a holistic outlook on market trends and drivers.
