AchemAsia will open its gates in Beijing. For the tenth time, experts from all over the world will meet in order to present products and processes for plant engineering and chemical processing, get information on the latest developments in the process industries, and make new contacts.
With about 450 exhibitors and 13,000 participants from 23 countries, AchemAsia is the most international trade show for the process industries in China. It covers apparatus and plant engineering as well as process technology, petrochemistry, pharma and food processing, agrochemistry and laboratory and packaging techniques. Environmental technology and water treatment are also in the focus. The exhibition is accompanied by several praxis-oriented symposia on process intensification, smog prevention and clean production, water treatment, “Industry 4.0” and single-use technologies. Exhibitors can apply for a stand until November 30; the submission of abstracts for presentations will be open until November 15, 2015.
The tenth anniversary of AchemAsia occurs at a time of economic change: China’s economic growth is slowing down and the government strives for a structural change from an export-oriented economy to a strong domestic market. With the strategy “Made in China 2025” it has initiated an ambitioned program to transform China to a high-tech location. German and international companies have to prepare for more competition from China. On the other hand, the high-investment program opens great opportunities for German technologies in production, plant engineering and automation as well as in providing equipment for a wide range of sectors.
“The first AchemAsia in 1989 took place at a time when the economic development of China could only be vaguely anticipated”, says Dr.-Ing. Thomas Scheuring, CEO of Dechema Ausstellungs-GmbH. “Since then, we have seen a rapid upturn. Thus, AchemAsia has developed from a meeting point where the first cautious feelers were put out to an innovation and business forum that is as indispensable for international as for Chinese participants.”
