Dear Academics and Distinguished Representatives of the Coating Industry,

Paintistanbul & Turkcoat Congress, the meeting point of coating and coating raw material manufacturers and academics, will be held at Green Park Hotel Pendik on 05-06 December 2023.

 Our congress, which has been organized within the scope of the paintistanbul & Turkcoat Fair and Congress Event since its inception, was successfully held online and independent of the fair for the first time in 2021 due to the unprecedented pandemic conditions. Paintistanbul & Turkcoat Congress, which has been recognized as an international platform where all academic and technical studies related to coating technologies are presented and discussed over the years, will be organized separately as a one-year fair and one-year congress in the coming period. We believe that these more frequent events will also contribute to raising coating awareness.

 Our congress activities are carried out by the Congress Scientific Committee, which is composed of esteemed academics and industry representatives within BOSAD.

 Our aim is to strengthen the international recognition of the congress and to make our country a base in the Eurasian region on paint technologies.

 The 9th paintistanbul&Turkcoat Congress, which will be organized by BOSAD and Chem Media, aims to shape the future of our industry with topics such as innovation, sustainability, functionality, digitalization and artificial intelligence.

 Unlike previous years, Paintistanbul & Turkcoat Congress will bring together all sector stakeholders with its exhibition area concept in the foyer and the panel with eminent invited speakers, which will enable the exchange of new trends, technologies and developments by enriching university-industry cooperation.

 In this context, we hope that you, our esteemed congress participants, will share our excitement and enthusiasm, and we sincerely thank our distinguished sponsors, Scientific Committee, Chem Media and BOSAD General Secretariat for contributing to the accomplishment of our congress.

 Yours faithfully,

Hakan Ünel

Acting President of BOSAD & Chairman of Fair and Congress Working Group
