From 10 to 14 June 2024, 2,800 exhibitors from more than 50 nations will showcase their product innovations for the global process industry at the Frankfurt exhibition grounds. “The high level of participation by exhibitors from abroad shows that ACHEMA continues to gain ever greater international importance. Compared to the previous event, more than a quarter more exhibitors have registered and the exhibition space is again almost a third larger than last time. We are fully booked in large parts“, says Dr Björn Mathes, CEO of DECHEMA Ausstellungs-GmbH.

The lecture programme, which has been fully integrated into the exhibition since ACHEMA 2022, is also reporting record numbers: In up to 25 parallel tracks, over 900 lectures, discussions and workshops from more than 1,000 speakers await ACHEMA visitors. "ACHEMA offers the perfect platform to showcase and exchange on the latest innovations, solutions and future trends across the pharmaceutical and chemical industry while directly engaging with those who can benefit from our sustainability-oriented solutions," says Norbert Strieder, Head of Marketing Chemical Technologies at GEA.

Six Innovation Stages on the topics of Process, Pharma, Green, Lab, Digital and Hydrogen will focus on the key challenges facing the process industry today and in the coming years. In addition to solutions for a sustainable transformation, ACHEMA 2024 will focus on innovations in the fields of pharmaceuticals and biotechnology: “Our innovation map ranges from integrated engineering and complex production simulations to sustainable production concepts. The Pharma Innovation Stage is the perfect platform to share our innovations with the global process industry and accelerate technical progress”, says Andreas Marchler, Managing Director of ZETA.

Numerous side events from renowned partners
ACHEMA 2024 will also feature numerous side events from renowned partners: In hall 11.0, ARC Advisory Group, NAMUR and ZVEI are once again organizing a joint forum at ACHEMA under the name “Automation in Dialogue”. On all five days of the exhibition there will be varied lectures and discussions on the important topics of automation technology in the process industry.

This year, the final of the AIRA Robotics Challenge will once again be part of ACHEMA. In hall 11.1, the five finalist teams will demonstrate live at ACHEMA how they remotely control their robots to perform their tasks in mock scenarios of a chemical plant or laboratory. The focus this time shifts to teleoperation, i. e. the use of systems that enable remote control.

As part of an industry initiative around the Flow Chemistry Pavilion, a number of market players are organising the Flow Chemistry Symposium on 12 and 13 June, where participants will immerse themselves in the field of Flow Chemistry under the guidance of renowned scientists and industry experts. Sessions will feature compelling case studies and best practices focusing on the breakthrough capabilities of continuous manufacturing technology.

On all five days of the exhibition, the North American Scientific Equipment and Furniture Association (SEFA) will welcome visitors to its SEFA Theatre in Hall 12.0, where it will provide insights into global laboratory design. Other topics include sustainability in the laboratory and the digitalisation of laboratory infrastructure.

Also at ACHEMA, DEXPI is organising the Process Industry Data Model Integration Congress 3.0 (PIDMIC 3.0) on 11 and 12 June. This will address the latest developments in data integration and focus on practical applications, standardisation efforts and technological breakthroughs.

Other highlights of ACHEMA’s side events include the ISSA symposium on hazardous substances in maintenance work, the ELRIG drug discovery forum, the VCW event on strategies for a sustainable green chemical industry, the VDI information platform for engineers in production and the India Day, which is dedicated to one of the most dynamic and promising markets at the moment.

“In addition to all these programme highlights, which are all included in the ticket, ACHEMA offers endless networking opportunities and is therefore more than just a trade show. It is a platform for technology and change, where ideas are born and partnerships are forged,” emphasizes Mathes. “ACHEMA 2024 will inspire, inform and encourage on the road to climate neutrality.”
