Chemspec Europe expands conference programme


Chemspec Europe will take place in halls A5 and A6 of the Munich Trade Fair Centre, Germany

Due to high demand, Chemspec Europe's exhibition space has been expanded twice in the run-up to the show, resulting in this year’s net floor space exceeding the 6,000m2 mark for the first time ever.

Chemspec Europe 2017 is Europe’s major sourcing and networking event for the fine and speciality chemicals industry.

Germany, the UK, Switzerland, Belgium and France are the major European exhibitor countries. Asian exhibitors mainly come from China and India. Companies from the USA will also be well represented.

For the first time, the programme will include the conference “Innovative Start-ups: New Chemicals and Industrial Biotechnology” organised by BCNP Consultants.

On Thursday, 1 June, from 13:00–16:00, eight innovative chemistry start-ups and entrepreneurs will present new substances and new production routes in the fields of classical chemistry and industrial biotechnology.

On Wednesday, 31 May, from 11:30 to 12:30, Magid Abou-Gharbia, from the Moulder Center for Drug Discovery Research, will give a lecture on the topic “Drug Development in a Changing Environment: Current Challenges and Future Opportunities”.

The day before the official start of the exhibition, on Tuesday, 30 May, from 14:00–17:30, EFCG will return with “The Crop Protection and Fine Chemicals Forum”.
