ACHEMA’s key sectors include: Pumps, Compressors, Valves & Fittings; Laboratory & Analytical Techniques; Pharmaceutica Packaging & Storage Solutions; Mechanical Processes; Thermal Processes and Instrumentation. Control & Automation Techniques.  A total of 4,200+ exhibitors attracted over 144,000 visitors, 31% of which were from outside Germany.

Laboratory & Analytical Techniques occupies three, centrally located, halls at Messe Frankfurt and is the second largest sector, by exhibitor numbers.

ACHEMA was the first overseas exhibition to feature on BLWA’s (now the Laboratory Technology Group of GAMBICA) Overseas Event Programme – with our first group attending in 1967.

ACHEMA takes place every three years, and has a very long ‘run-up time’ with the initial call for applications expected in October 2019.  We anticipate that GAMBICA’s application details will be available around this time.

For the first time, this year, UK group participants will be able to submit their application direct to GAMBICA and we will then deal with all aspects of group participation.  We and DECHEMA hope that this should save participants money, time and effort in having to deal with multiple deposit payments and booking confirmations.

ACHEMA attracts a large number of visiting GAMBICA members and we would recommend your watching out for details of our new Visitor Package for this event.  For an outline of the benefits this package offers click here.

It was also, very much with ACHEMA in mind, that our new Pod Stand package has been developed.  This is intended to provide companies, which have not exhibited at ACHEMA previously, with a very cost-effective ‘toe dip’ at this hugely important event for the Lab Tech Sector.  The details of the Pod Stand package will be available nearer.
