Biobased Coatings Europe 2019

Date: 19th June 2019 - 20th June 2019 Location: Dusseldorf - Germany

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.

ACI is very happy to announce that during the afternoon of Tuesday 18th of June, a limited number of conference delegates will have the unique opportunity to visit Alberdingk Boley’s chemical plant near Düsseldorf.

Alberdingk Boley has been a partner for customers for more than 190 years. Their systems are based on water rather than solvents. The environmentally friendly binders from Alberdingk Boley refine, join, beautify and protect surfaces. In addition, they are Europe’s largest producer of castor oil, linseed oil and their derivatives.

There is no extra charge to attend the site visit, but spaces are strictly limited and allocated to conference delegates on a first-come, first-served basis, subject to final approval of the site visit host. Therefore, we would strongly suggest to book your place in advance to avoid disappointment.

More information regarding the visit will be announced shortly…
