In times of social distancing, pictures from last year’s European Coatings Show seem like a leftover of a bygone era. Meeting people at ECS has always been an essential part of our job – and, especially now, we are longing for face-to-face interactions with our customers and partners. That’s why it’s all the more painful to announce that BASF’s Dispersions & Resins and other businesses will not exhibit at #ECS2021. This is not a decision taken lightly, but one made in the interest of the safety of all those we work with. We are truly sorry that we won’t be able to meet everybody in person at next year’s ECS – but we will work all the harder to continue our dialogue in other ways and to keep you updated.
