***Important Message RE MECS 2020, Dubai***

PRESS RELEASE: Middle East Coatings Show postponed until 2021

The Middle East Coatings Show, our annual trade event connecting the coatings community in Dubai is moving dates. Over the past weeks, we have made it our priority to listen to our clients and partners, and have decided to postpone this year’s event, which was scheduled for September, to 14 - 16 June 2021, at the Dubai World Trade Centre. It was not an easy decision to take, but we believe this is in the best interest of our key stakeholders and coatings industry as a whole.

The early announcement of new dates will enable industry players to plan ahead and join an event that will bring benefit to the whole coatings value chain, while taking into consideration a wide set of factors, most importantly: the health, safety and convenience of all participants, ease of travel, as well as the global events calendar for the industry.

We apologise for any inconvenience this move may cause, and would like to take this opportunity to express our sincere gratitude to our exhibitors, visitors, sponsors, speakers, partners and stakeholders for their continued support, and we look forward to meeting you all on 14-16 June 2021.

Until then, stay safe!

If you have any questions, please contact Paul Davis, Portfolio Director:

Thank you.
