ABRAFATI 2013 drives business and technological development forward
These were three days of intense activities that provided information about innovations and researches that are changing the present coatings.
With the presence of 270 suppliers showing a wide range of solutions for the coatings industry, the Exhibition created a climate of strong motivation for doing business.
Thousands of skilled professionals learned about the latest in raw materials, processes, products, technologies and equipment, opening up a number of opportunities for the coatings industry to become increasingly innovative and sustainable. Both booths and halls offered an ideal setting for negotiation, dialogues about joint projects, information sharing and closer business relations that will boost the growth of the entire coatings chain.
At the same time, the high level program of the Congress provided a broad and very consistent view of the innovations and trends. Leading international specialists shared their latest studies focusing on the main characteristics that need to be incorporated into coatings: sustainability, multifunctionality, high-performance and excellent cost benefit advantages.
In addition to the 72 presentations of the Congress, the technical program was enriched by the Poster Session and the seminar on radiation curing, promoted in partnership with RadTech South America, which brought an important contribution to the debate and dissemination of essential information for the industry.
The four plenary sessions were another highlight of the event. They stimulated reflection about the present and future of the productive chain and introduced original analysis on the central themes that were discussed at ABRAFATI 2013.
