ACHEMA is the world forum for chemical engineering, process engineering and biotechnology. Every three years the world’s leading show for the process industry attracts around 3,800 exhibitors from over 50 different countries to present new products, processes and services to 150,000 professionals from all over the world. The spectrum ranges from laboratory equipment, pumps and analytical devices to packaging machinery, boilers and stirrers through to safety technology, materials and software, thus covering the entire needs of the chemical, pharmaceutical and food production industries. The accompanying congress, featuring 800 scientific lectures and numerous guest and partner events, complements the wide range of themes of the exhibition.
Focal topics are identified anew for every ACHEMA and feature topics that are currently trending in industry. In 2021, they are
- The digital lab: In the lab data from every stage of research and production converge. Modularly designed and fully connected, the digital lab is a data mine for process design and quality control.
- Product and process security: The interfaces between the real and the virtual world demand special attention in times of industry 4.0 and Internet of Things.
- Modular and connected production: A fully connected value chains makes faster product cycles possible as well as small batches of specialized products.
Based on the proven ACHEMA concept with its unique range of topics and the established interplay of exhibition and congress, the organizers at Dechema are currently working on new formats that will offer even more opportunities for discussion and networking. These include matchmaking tools as well as new interactive event formats. They are intended to stimulate discussion and provide additional impulses. The hall layout has also been slightly adapted to make optimum use of the structural changes on the exhibition grounds and to integrate the brand new Hall 12, located right in the center.
Thus ACHEMA, which celebrates its centenary in 2020, offers the opportunity to truly experience the latest solutions and products for the process industry and to make global contacts.
