No Summer Break: Registrations for Achema 2015 Well Under Way
In answer to the great demand, Achema 2015 offers as per now additional exhibition space for Pharmaceutical, Packaging and Storage Techniques. Almost eleven months before the start, Achema 2015 is thus well on target. The organisers anticipate similar participant figures as for 2012 when around 3,800 exhibitors and 167,000 participants flocked onto the Frankfurt exhibition grounds. The deadline for submitting lectures for the Congress programme is 31 August 2014.
With less than a year to go before the opening of the world forum of the process industry, scheduled for 15–19 June 2015 in Frankfurt am Main, the organisers already see good grounds for optimism. “We are glad to be able to offer the numerous interested parties additional exhibition space in Pharmaceutical, Packaging and Storage Techniques” says Dr. Thomas Scheuring, CEO of Dechema Ausstellungs-GmbH. In addition to hall 3 the nearby “Forum” is now also available. In recent weeks, a waiting list had to be kept due to the great demand. “Now we can accommodate all customers”, Dr. Scheuring is glad to report. In other exhibition groups, such as Instrumentation, Control and Automation Techniques and also Pumps, demand has also already exceeded comparable figures for the previous event. Constantly rising registration figures from China and India are by now taken for granted, but there is also a keen demand from European countries, such as Spain or Great Britain.
For the first time Achema is launching three focal themes which, being multidisciplinary trends, will involve a wide range of exhibition groups. ‘BiobasedWorld’ will present technologies and solutions relating to the use of sustainable resources and industrial biotechnology. With ‘Innovative Process Analytical Technology’ the organisers span the gamut from Laboratory and Analytical Techniques through to Automation. Finally, bridging the gap between zero liquid and low-emission production, ‘Industrial Water Management’ offers solutions for a wide variety of regional and technical requirements.
These topics also play an important part in the Congress programme, which traditionally gives priority to the blend of science and industrial relevance. Hence, application-oriented themes can be discussed in direct proximity to the respective exhibition halls, thus enabling participants, depending on their interests, to plan their visit to maximum advantage. Panel discussions and guest events round off the new, streamlined format of the Congress programme. “On the one hand, we aim to cover the whole spectrum of themes, on the other hand we also endeavour to eliminate overlaps between parallel thematic strands”, is how Prof. Kurt Wagemann, CEO of Dechema e.V. puts the challenge facing the planners.
There is no doubt about it: a summer break is not an option for the organisers of Achema. “We are again looking forward to a fantastic event and we’re pulling out all the stops to achieve that goal”, declare the two CEOs unanimously.
