These days, the market and the world around us are constantly changing – and the pace is accelerating. The last two years have shown how dramatic and how fast changes can impact and disrupt life as well as business in various aspects. A global pandemic, disruptive supply chains, raw materials scarcity and high prices, shortage of skilled personnel, a war in Europe, inflation…this list of challenges is already very long, but far from being complete. Legislative developments such as the EU Green Deal and environmental issues in general are very demanding for paint and coatings producers across Europe.

This year‘s CEPE Annual Conference will dedicate its programme in addressing these topics. Under the motto „Adapting to Change: The role of the coatings industry in a challenging environment“, current events will be evaluated and broken down to the coatings industry, the current and future impact as well as identifying the role of coatings industry in a constantly changing and challenging world. CEPE will be setting the tone in Madrid, Spain from 28-30 September, with a high-calibre conference programme aimed at presenting new ideas and approaches to the top decision-makers among European paints and coatings manufacturers. CEPE has put together a first-class conference programme on this theme. The presentations will inspire, provoke thought and encourage discussion. With this in mind, the programme will feature not only speakers from the coatings industry, but also speakers who can give a glimpse beyond the industry.
