By 2 p.m. on Wednesday, it was already clear that SurfaceTechnology GERMANY had made the cut. The Stuttgart-based event was only half over, but most exhibitors already voiced a great deal of satisfaction, with many of them expressing downright enthusiasm over the large number of successful customer interactions.
The international trade fair for surface technology had been eagerly awaited: With a new name and all in green, the former O&S had set out to become even more international. And the plan succeeded.
With a record 8,286 square meters of occupied display space
"This was a successful premiere," reported Olaf Daebler, Global Director of SurfaceTechnology at Deutsche Messe, continuing: "The fact that we were able to launch the event with a record amount of display space was an ideal prerequisite. The great response from our visitors has now made things complete: SurfaceTechnology GERMANY not only maintained the strong performance of its O&S predecessor, but also enhanced it in terms of internationality, user industries and market significance." With a record 8,286 square meters of occupied display space, SurfaceTechnology GERMANY was already reflecting the good mood in the coating technology industry even before the gates opened. And the concomitant near-filling of Stuttgart’s largest exhibition hall, Hall 1, was also positively received.
