Fair Achema in Frankfurt

Blogpost updated January 2018

With around 3,800 exhibitors from all over the world, Achema is the world’s largest trade fair for the process industry. Around 170,000 visitors took advantage of the last event in June 2015 to find out about process innovations in chemical engineering, process engineering and biotechnology.

The fair takes place every three years in Frankfurt, the next event is planned for 11 June to 15 June 2018. Interested exhibitors can secure their stand from September 2016.  When it comes to planning and building an innovative exhibition stand, WUM Design will be happy to assist you.

The largest exhibition groups at Achema 2015 included pumps, compressors and valves, laboratory and analytical technology and thermal processes.

In addition, there were mechanical processes, plant construction and pharmaceutical, packaging and storage technology. This spectrum is supplemented by research and innovation, measurement, control and process engineering, materials technology and material testing.

Achema is more than just a trade fair

The exhibition programme will be rounded off by further events in the field of process innovation. In 2015, the organizations Namur and ARC Advisory Group ZVEI continued their joint forum “Automation in Dialog”.

During the entire fair, a wide variety of discussions and panel discussions on automation technology took place there. In the process industry, it is an essential component of cost reductions and efficiency increases. The focus of the discussions was on modular automation, IT security and energy and resource efficiency, but the current trends in industry 4.0 were also discussed by the visitors.

The European Conference on Bioeconomics proved to be highly appreciated. Top managers from the European and international industry discussed the current status of the bioeconomic branch. Under the question of how far one has come since the Achema of 2012 until today and what horizon stretches up to 2020, the experts discussed how the situation in the European Union currently presents itself and how far the bioeconomy has developed in the individual member states until today.

As an information platform for engineers in production and manufacturing, the trade fair is also an important contact point for technically oriented specialists and managers.
