“Key industry exhibitions like this are important to us. Our exhibition stand at the Middle East Coatings Show is our ‘shop front’ that helps to raise awareness about our business and promotes our pigment products and our brands. It’s also an excellent meeting place – offering us an opportunity to talk to existing and potential customers in the region over a concentrated period of time.”

For this year, the most important reason to attend the exhibition was face-to-face meetings with clients and potential clients.”
