Chemspec Europe 2017 bigger than ever and with expanded conference programme
Chemspec Europe is the International Exhibition for Fine and Speciality Chemicals. Its 32nd edition will take place in halls A5 and A6 of the Munich Trade Fair Centre, Germany. Due to high demand, exhibition space has been expanded twice in the run-up to the show, resulting in this year’s net floor space exceeding the 6,000 m2 mark for the first time ever. Furthermore, visitors to Chemspec Europe 2017 can expect an even wider conference programme than at previous events.
Chemspec Europe 2017 is Europe’s major sourcing and networking event for the fine and speciality chemicals industry. For purchasers and agents looking for specialised ingredients or bespoke solutions, the event is a renowned marketplace to source products, exchange expertise and build international contacts.
Compared to the previous event, Chemspec Europe 2016 in Basel experienced an increase of 7 % in net floor space. Only a few weeks before this year’s show, Chemspec Europe 2017 is following up on this success: To date, 388 exhibitors from 29 countries have secured their stands on a net floor space of 6,140 m2. For the first time ever, net floor space exceeds the 6,000 m2 mark, representing an increase of more than 5 %.
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.
Expanded conference programme
Chemspec Europe is known for its varied conference programme, which is organised in cooperation with renowned partner organisations. The conferences not only provide the latest results of ongoing R&D projects but also a framework for exchanging expertise with industry professionals and valuable networking opportunities. Due to popular demand, this year’s conference programme has been expanded.
For the first time, the programme will include the conference “Innovative Start-ups: New Chemicals & Industrial Biotechnology”, organised by BCNP Consultants. On Thursday, 1 June 2017, from 13:00 to 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.
Dr Magid Abou-Gharbia’s ever popular “Pharma Outsourcing Best Practices Panel” will not be his only contribution to the 2017 conference programme. On Wednesday, 31 May 2017, from 11:30 to 12:30, Dr Abou-Gharbia, from the Moulder Center for Drug Discovery Research, will give an additional 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 2017, from 14:00 to 17:30, EFCG will return with “The Crop Protection & Fine Chemicals Forum”.
The remaining conference programme includes the Agrochemical Outlook Conference, sponsored by AGROW, and the Regulatory Services Conference, organised by REACHReady.
