Industry Relevance 

ACHEMA, as mentioned above, holds a particular influence over the chemical industry, because it has been running for a century. The first edition was held in 1920 and has acted as a tool to chart the entire history of the industry. The exhibition is organised once every three years at Messe Frankfurt and each edition has its own special themes that complement the show’s core topics – chemical engineering, chemical and biochemical reaction technology, energy and alternative feedstock, and material processing. 

Of course, over the years, this has considerably expanded. Currently, ACHEMA has a massive and diverse portfolio, which captures the imagination of researchers, scientists, and buyers. The halls are organised around 12 major product groups and areas: Digital Hub; Materials Technology and Testing; Industrial and Labour Safety; Laboratory and Analytical Techniques; Pharmaceutical, Packaging, and Storage Techniques; Research and Innovation; Instrumentation, Control, and Automation Techniques; Engineering; Literature, Information, Learning and Teaching Aids; Pumps, Compressors, Valves, and Fittings; Mechanical Processes, and Thermal Processes. Together they encompass the entire modern value chain of the chemical industry. Nowhere else do you see such a depth of products and services. 

Who Are You Going to Meet? 

Once we break down exhibitors, we discover they come from a variety of industry sectors such as plant engineering, environmental science, petrochemicals, chemistry, and biotechnology. Among these we have names such as Microfluidics International Corporation, Lab Logistics Group GmbH, MKS Instruments, Inc. and S.K. Pharma Machinery PVT. Ltd. among others. Coming to witness the latest innovations demonstrated at ACHEMA are engineers, commercial staff, foremen, lab assistants, technicians, chemists, and physicists. A large group of these visitors return home very well satisfied. Surveys say that 85% of visitors report being “satisfied” or “highly satisfied” with their visit. 

The Additional Value from Attendance 

Over the decades, as the exhibition grew in size, ACHEMA built on top of its success with brand-new initiatives aimed at delivering value to everyone involved. Today, the exhibition has one of the most comprehensive support programmes. There’s something for everybody. 

The PRAXISforum consists of a series of short presentations and has a lot of practical focus. The presentations touch upon issues regarding best practices, productions and the latest technologies that are ready-to-use right now.
