Extract successful at ACHEMA

Published: 24-Jul-2015

After all the preparation and all the waiting, it finally arrived, went faster than the wind and left us with lots of work: ACHEMA - the event of choice for chemical, pharmaceutical and food industries

Every three years ACHEMA in Frankfurt brings together nearly 170,000 industry professionals, enabling them to showcase their latest innovations, to let their visitors see and touch the products, to meet the experts and listen to inspiring programme – and finally (but probably most importantly), to build partnerships and finalise deals.

This year’s focal topics of ACHEMA were:

  • Biobased World
  • Industrial Water Management
  • Innovative Process Analytical Technology

For the first time more than half of the exhibitors (53.0%) came from outside Germany. China was second in the exhibitor number rankings and was ahead of Italy by only the narrowest of margins. The number of companies from Turkey, Taiwan and India substantially increased. Within the EU region it was Austria, the UK and Spain that showed the largest increase. France and the US were again well represented.

This was the first time the Extract Technology team had been at ACHEMA since 2003, so we made sure we put some effort into it and we’ve managed to get great results.

Aside from all the other benefits from participating in ACHEMA, one cannot ignore the importance and value of the team building exercise. The hard work, long days and evenings spent together definitely brought #teamextract closer and equipped us with priceless knowledge and experience.

DECHEMA, the organisers of the fair, are already planning the next one: Same place, same industries, 11-15 June 2018. ACHEMA is a great event that simply cannot be missed if you’re in the industry. It’s the place to be – and we’ll be there come 2018.
