We would like to reassure our participants that we are actively monitoring the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. The health, safety and well-being of the community remain of the utmost importance to us. Thank you for your continued support and we look forward to announcing the new dates in due course.

The global situation surrounding the Covid 19 virus has continued to evolve, and dmg events have been closely monitoring the situation. We have also been in close contact with our exhibitors, partners and key participants.

With the necessary restrictions which the South African Government has rightly introduced to protect public safety, and internal travel bans within companies, a large majority of participants now find themselves unable to travel.

Bearing this in mind, and in the interests of our global exhibitors and key buyers from the region, Coatings For Africa 2020 will be postponed and rescheduled for a later date. We are currently in discussion with the venue and authorities to find a suitable time when we will once again be able to deliver the strong international participation associated with the event. We appreciate your understanding that this decision has been taken in the best interests of all participants and we will update you when dates have been confirmed. Once the new dates are confirmed prices and conditions will remain unchanged.
