To the focus topics


"The FAF is more than just a trade fair. It is the family reunion of the creative finishing industry, from painters and varnishers to plasterers and interior decorators. If you want to be at the cutting edge of technology, make new and surprising business contacts and soak up the spirit of our innovative industry, you have to be there in Cologne."

Guido Müller | President of the Bundesverband Farbe Gestaltung Bautenschutz

"We are all delighted that the "FAF 2024 - FARBE, AUSBAU & FASSADE" trade fair will now take place in Cologne from 23.04.2024 to 26.04.2024 after a long wait. This important event brings together experts, specialists and interested parties from the finishing and facade industry and offers an outstanding platform for exchanging the latest developments and innovations in this field."

Oliver Heib | Chairman of the Bundesverband Ausbau und Fassade

"From 23 to 26 April 2024, industry players from the paint, finishing and facade sectors will meet at the international FAF trade fair of the same name in Cologne. The DAW professional brands Caparol, ALLIGATOR and DISBON will also be taking part. Following the forced break due to the coronavirus, the leading trade fair for façade and interior design is opening up the opportunity for direct personal dialogue and intensive communication between manufacturers and users with new formats. The DAW professional brands want to use this important platform for addressing customers to present their innovative range of products and services to a broad specialist audience. The numerous opportunities for interaction and networking make Farbe, Ausbau und Fassade an exciting meeting place for visitors from all product ranges and countries."

Helge Browning | Event Management DAW Akademie

"FINALLY COLOUR again! We are delighted that after the long corona-related break, the FAF - FARBE, AUSBAU & FASSADE paint, finishing and facade trade fair will take place again in Cologne in 2024. An important sign for the industry, in our opinion. That's why it was a matter of course for us to be there again. In addition to presenting the company and demonstrating our product innovations, we would like to use the trade fair above all to further promote the painting trade. As a training company, it is particularly important to us to make this great trade more interesting and attractive for young people. After all, we can only strengthen the industry in the long term with well-trained young people. Industry, retailers and craft businesses need to network even better in the future. And there is no better place to do this than at the leading national trade fair for our industry."

Stephanie Werf | Diessner GmbH & Co. KG

"FAF will continue to be the special trade fair event for European Aerosols in 2024. Over the course of four days in Cologne, a mirror of the creative DIY sector will be presented. An ideal platform to present our products and concepts and to interact live with customers and partners."

Tobias Hornung | European Aerosols

"Participation in FAF 2024 is essential for us because our main target group - painters - is 100% represented there. We can therefore focus our entire trade fair presence on the needs of painters without compromise and showcase our innovations and solutions for their areas of application. Only here do we receive the 1:1 feedback from our trade customers that is so important to us over the entire trade fair, from which we can in turn learn whether we fulfil their needs and expectations and where we need to develop further.
Trade fairs in person are so important for us because, in addition to the personal 1:1 contact, every visitor is constantly online with their mobile phone camera and the contact rate at trade fairs today is therefore many times higher than it was 10 years ago. Every visitor becomes a valuable influencer for us and we want to offer them a convincing, positive experience at our trade fair stand."

Thorgen Juettner | Festool

"FAF is the industry meeting point for 2024 and after the long break, we believe that trade contractors and their employees are eager for action, innovation and dialogue. As a partner of the trade and exclusive sponsor of the national plastering team, it goes without saying that Knauf will be right in the centre of the action."

Gerhard Wellert | Knauf Gips KG

"Lamurista sets trends with innovative products and, according to "Focus Business" and "Statista", is the fastest growing company for decorative building materials in Germany. Accordingly, it is a matter of course for us to take part in the largest and most influential trade fair, the FAF - FARBE, AUSBAU & FASSADE."

Alexander Baumer | Lamurista

"FAF - FARBE, AUSBAU & FASSADE has been a fixture for "marburg" for years as a means of presenting our new products and innovations to a wide audience of painters. The trade fair enables us to interact directly, provides valuable feedback and helps us to develop customised solutions for our customers' needs."

Dirk Steinhoff | marburg

"The trade fair is the ideal opportunity for us to talk to our wholesalers and our mutual customers, the painters, and convince them of our products. The best way to do this is to meet on site and experience the benefits live in a pleasant atmosphere. For this reason, we will be there again in 2024."

Jens Bayer | Meffert AG

"As a specialist in timber and colour with over 140 years of expertise, Osmo offers professional processors a wide range of products that are precisely tailored to individual needs and impress with certified healthy living and sustainability.

"For medium-sized companies like SÜDWEST, participating in trade fairs is all about "seeing and being seen". The main aim is to acquire new customers and maintain contacts with existing customers - also internationally. In addition, it is important for us to make our services and the SÜDWEST brand close and tangible and - last but not least - to face a sporting market and company comparison. Especially in times of tougher competition, this can only be achieved at trade fairs. That is why we have gladly decided to take part in FAF - FARBE, AUSBAU & FASSADE 2024."

Hans-Jörg von Rhade | SÜDWEST Lacke + Farben GmbH & Co. KG

"FAF - FARBE, AUSBAU & FASSADE in Cologne offers us a great forum to talk to tradespeople and trade partners about new trends, products and the implementation of our sustainability strategy. Where else can you meet more people from the industry and exchange ideas so intensively?"

Uwe Gerlach | tesa Germany

"FAF - FARBE, AUSBAU & FASSADE is the ideal platform for us to present our wide range of brands and products to painters. The personal exchange to understand the everyday challenges and the resulting needs of the users is an absolute advantage of the FAF."
