Chemspec Europe 2018 in Cologne has opened it doors ready to present the full range of fine and specialty chemicals
Chemspec Europe, the thirty-third International Exhibition for Fine and Speciality Chemicals, is taking place 20–21 June 2018, at Koelnmesse in Cologne, Germany.
On a net exhibition space of more than 6000 sq m, a total of 358 exhibitors from 27 countries will present a product portfolio that covers the full spectrum of fine and speciality chemicals for various applications.
Furthermore, visitors can expect new intelligent networking opportunities with the Chemspec Europe Partnering Programme as well as a comprehensive conference programme.
Chemspec Europe is Europe’s leading fine and speciality chemicals exhibition. For purchasers and agents looking for specific ingredients or bespoke solutions, the event is a renowned marketplace to source products, exchange expertise and build international contacts.
Exhibitors will showcase their products and services covering a maximum range of fine and speciality chemicals, including pharmaceuticals, agrochemicals, biobased chemicals, polymers, additives, advanced intermediates, food and feed, oil and gas mining, pigments, dyes, electronics, fragrances, household chemicals and many more.
The broad exhibition portfolio is completed by a range of analytical, production and processing equipment as well as regulatory services and products.
Major European exhibitor countries are Germany, the UK, France, Belgium and Switzerland. Non-European exhibitors mainly come from China, India and the US.
“Chemspec Europe is the only specialised platform for the fine and speciality chemicals industry in Europe. The event is focussing upon prevailing trends and developments in the industry sector, with a particular focus upon current challenges and emerging opportunities. Currently, there is an increasing trend for biobased chemicals for the development of fine and speciality chemicals."
"Furthermore, intensified competition and the constant search for innovation are some of the key drivers that make flexible production and strategic collaborations more and more important. Only well-informed companies with an excellent network can be successful in this highly complex market in the long run,” said Liljana Goszdziewski, Exhibition Director of Chemspec Europe, on behalf of the organisers, Mack Brooks Exhibitions.
Networking has always been an essential part of Chemspec Europe. This year, visitors have the opportunity to use the new Chemspec Europe Partnering Programme, which allows them to connect and do business with people of complementary interests.
A matchmaking service allows visitors, who are looking for specific business solutions, products or services, to select contacts by keywords and arrange meetings with attendees who provide such solutions. For the arranged meetings, visitors can use the new on-site meeting spaces, which are exclusively available to participants of the Partnering Programme.
The accompanying conference programme complements the topical variety of the exhibition. In four lecture theatres, a total of 56 conference sessions and workshops provide insights into current developments and prospects and encourage discussions and networking with international industry colleagues.
