UTECH Europe


19 Feb 2019

Organisers of UTECH Europe, the world-leading polyurethanes exhibition and conference, have announced the next edition of the event will return to the MECC in Maastricht, the Netherlands from 13 to 15 April 2021.

The last UTECH Europe event held in 2018 featured over 200 exhibiting companies and had a total footfall of 10,113 over three days. Visitors came from across Europe and no less than 90 different countries globally.

Over 90 per cent of exhibition space for the 2021 event has already been sold, with the few spaces remaining expected to sell out fast. Exhibiting companies confirmed include industry leaders BASF, Covestro, Dow Europe, Evonik, Huntsman, Repsol, Shell Chemicals Europe and Wanhua Borsodchem as well as machinery suppliers, systems houses, technical consultancies, and test laboratories.

Speaking after UTECH Europe 2018, exhibitors praised the event as the ideal platform to present polyurethane technology and innovations to buyers and influencers from across Europe and the wider world.

“UTECH Europe is the main show in Europe and one of the biggest global shows for the polyurethane industry,” said Villy Nikolaidou, Head of Global Marketing Communications, Polyurethanes, Covestro. “UTECH Europe is really the forum that makes it all possible in our industry.”

“For Dow, UTECH Europe offers a great platform to meet and engage with our customers and to understand the marketplaces they serve,” said Jon Penrice, Dow’s Vice President Polyurethanes.
