Visitors and exhibitors highly appreciated the consistent program of business activities:
Conference "Results of 10 years' activity of the Association of Ukrainian manufacturers of paint and varnish industry. Promising ways of development of the paint industry", organized by the exhibition partners ‑ Association of Ukrainian manufacturers of paint and varnish industry, which gathered the headpersons of membering companies, attracted the attention of the audience. It was aimed mainly at familiarising of the market professionals with the legal and regulatory novelties, as well as definition of separate characteristics of paint and varnish products for the possibility of use in various branches of mechanical engineering.
Another noticeable event was the 1st Eco‑Marathon "Eco‑packaging: looking into the future". It was an independent space for dialogue between business and governmental circles to develop a national strategy for the gradual transition to safe materials for packaging. The marathon was devoted to innovations in the packaging, production, use, collection, recycling and recycling of wastes, in particular polymer packaging. Also a separate exposition of ecological packaging was presented in the hall.
The exhibitors assessed positively the dynamic development of the exhibitions, number and quality of visitors, their active interest to the new technologies, equipment and materials.
