The international meeting point for surface upgrading
Under the motto "upgraded - smart - bio" the renowned and traditional 29th PTS Coating Symposium 2019 will take place at the Leonardo Royal Hotel in Munich on 03 - 04 September 2019. The symposium is the largest and most important international meeting place for the paper and board surface finishing industry with 250 to 350 participants in recent years.
The upcoming PTS Coating Symposium 2019 will cover a wide range of topics and aims to "open the eyes of participants" to the opportunities that lie ahead. For exhibitors, this platform also offers satisfactory conditions. More than 30% of the participants come from paper mills, so that the short lectures in the lecture programme are very well received and meet with interest.
