The Middle East Coatings Show is looking forward to hosting the coatings industry this September 27-29 in Dubai – and IMCD is the latest company to join the growing number of international companies that are looking forward to doing business live and in-person at the event.
IMCD is a global leader in the distribution and formulation of speciality chemicals and ingredients, with a global footprint in more than 50 countries across six continents.
Paddy O’Neill, Event Director for the Coatings Group, said: “Dubai is very much up and running for events; several large shows have already been held here safely and we are excited about welcoming the coatings industry back in person, at one of the only live events for the coatings industry this year.
“The COVID-19 pandemic has presented many challenges around the globe, not least the issue of preventing people from doing business in person. We are pleased that the Middle East Coatings Show is able to go ahead safely, live and in-person, allowing our exhibitors and visitors the opportunity to once again reconnect with existing clients and source new business, face-to-face.
“Having IMCD come on board is not only an indication of the importance of the show to the industry, but also of how the Middle East region itself is attracting attention from key, international players.”
Frank Schneider, IMCD Coatings & Construction Business Group Director, noted: “Already in the past decade we saw in the Middle East extraordinary growth rates in the coatings, construction, adhesives, textile and inks markets. The Middle East has established itself as an important region for all these markets. Therefore, it has become a vital target for our global expansion.
“One year ago, IMCD started a greenfield operation in Middle East, and has since then gained a number of top-tier principal to represent in the region. We want to show our presence to the markets, in order to create customer attraction. And MECS is THE marketplace to demonstrate our ambitions.
“IMCD Coatings & Construction will be showcasing innovations from our best-in class partners and IMCD formulation solutions for building the City of Tomorrow.”
