Why Do Scientific Companies Exhibit At ACHEMA?
Frankfurt was the place to be seen on 18 to 22 June this year, as the 30th International Exhibition Congress on Chemical Engineering, Environmental Protection and Biotechnology - ACHEMA 2012 - attracted hundreds of thousands of visitors seeking to learn about the latest technological advances, network with other professionals and businesses, and source suppliers.
Considering that the last ACHEMA trade fair in 2009 attracted almost 3,800 industry exhibitors, and around 173,000 visitors, it doesn't take a rocket scientist to see the business potential in such a massive and internationally respected event and the figures for 2012 look very good indeed. Some of the world's foremost scientific and laboratory equipment suppliers attended, including exciting new exhibitors from China, India and Eastern Europe.
A number of existing labface.com customers took advantage of the business benefits to be gained from exhibiting at ACHEMA, displaying their products, networking and interacting with peers, competitors and potential customers alike. Eppendorf, one of the world's leading suppliers of lab equipment and scientific instruments, displayed items from their catalogue of products that ranges from automatic pipette equipment to microcentrifuges, in Hall 4.2 at stand G7.
One floor down in Hall 4.1 you could find Fritsch GmbH (who specialise in laboratory instruments for particle size analysis and sample preparation) at stand J49, and leading biopharmaceutical, bioscience research and medical supplier Merck Millipore at stand G49. Innovative supplier of lab products Sartorius were also there, in Outdoor Area 1 at stand A17. And of course, Synthesis Media - the company behind labface.com and laboratorytalk.com - were shwoing off their media products on stand A11 in Foyer 4.1.
Offering an almost overwhelming variety of exhibitors and seminars over a period of five days, ACHEMA 2012 is the leading event of its kind for businesses and professionals in the fields of chemical engineering and biotech science and research. It's worth remembering that this event only takes place every three years, and if you didn't take advantage of this opportunity you'll have a while to wait until 2015 to jump on board.
