The meeting place for the railway industry you shouldn´t miss!

ECOLROMAT 2021 is the leading specialist event dedicated to the painting of rail vehicles and THE meeting place for decision-makers in maintenance plants as well as international railway construction companies and operators. It provides a forum for contract coaters, coating manufacturers, system suppliers  and other innovators from the rail vehicle coating sector.

On the first conference day, experts from industry and research will present you trends and developments in the fields of innovative paint systems, including fire protection coatings, plant engineering and construction, pretreatment (blasting technology) as well as efficiency in the coating of rail vehicles in exciting and practical presentations.

The second conference day includes a new component of the interactive conference with high networking potential:

NEW: The ECOLROMAT Impulse Workshops!

Accompanied by impulse speeches, the ECOLROMAT Impulse Workshops on the second conference day will give you the opportunity to discuss current challenges in railway coating with your colleagues.
