The Coatings Group relocates

The Coatings Group, organiser of international exhibitions and publisher of leading trade magazines for the coatings industry, has relocated its head office from the UK to Dubai.

The move will benefit the Group’s clients and community, as the new team will now be located in the same region as the Group’s flagship show, Middle East Coatings Show (MECS).

As well as MECS, the Coatings Group organises the highly acclaimed Asia Pacific Coatings Show (APCS) and Coatings for Africa (CFA). As well as the central team in Dubai, the Coatings Group will be represented regionally by local sales representatives in China, Indonesia, Europe and South Africa.

The Group also publishes leading trade magazines Polymers Paint Colour Journal (PPCJ) and Asia Pacific Coatings Journal (APCJ). The magazines will continue to be published from the UK and the team based in Dubai will manage advertising and sponsorship opportunities.

Due to the unprecedented challenge of COVID-19, many industry events have had to be rescheduled for 2021 and the Coatings Group events schedule is now as follows:

  • Coatings for Africa: June 2-4, 2021
  • Middle East Coatings Show: June 14-16, 2021
  • Asia Pacific Coatings Show: September 1-3, 2021
