“Go for Success – ideas for the development of paint & coatings”

Dear members of VILF,
Dear friends of VILF,

More than 300 participants were interested in the topic of our annual meeting this year. We could see numerous interesting lectures about subjects around innovation in the paint and coatings industry. The program included lectures from education in paint technology, about coatings technology in the production of agricultural machines as well as pretreatment of car bodies in OEM production, improved emulsions for water based decorative coatings, new production methods for coatings and new additives.

A special highlight of the conference was Gerhard Conzelmann and the shaolin monk Shin Yan Yan with the lecture “winning without fighting”. The presentation demonstrated how the mental approach could create strengths that lead to exceptional results.

The assessment of our questionnaires has shown that the lecture of Gerhard Conzelmann was very well accepted and topics outside of our daily work can provide additional value to all of us. Furthermore, your feedback showed us that the proposals from former annual meetings were converted successfully so that we were able to improve the catering at and organization of the event. Generally, the annual meeting has reached a high level of quality that needs to be kept at the next events.

The board of VILF thanks all participants for their positive feedback and would be pleased to welcome numerous members and friends of the VILF at the 2. ETCC congress in September 2014 in Cologne.

The next VILF annual meeting will take place 5.-6. November 2015 in Neu-Isenburg.

Kind regards
Board of VILF
