ACHEMA 2022, the World Forum for the Process Industries, will be held at the Frankfurt Fairground from 22 to 26 August 2022.

The move from the original April dates was made in view of continuing uncertainty caused by the Omicron covid variant.

The organisers see the four-month postponement as an opportunity to ensure an international ACHEMA as current travel restrictions continue to wreak havoc with event timetables.

“After many months of digital meetings, we want to fulfil the desire of exhibitors and visitors for a physical ACHEMA with participants from all over the world,” explains Dr Björn Mathes, Member of the Board of DECHEMA Ausstellungs-GmbH.

“This requires a comprehensive lively exhibition and the opportunity for personal contact. Apart from the date, nothing else will change about the planned ACHEMA 2022.”

The global trade fair is an opportunity for manufacturers and service providers to present their products and solutions for chemistry, pharmaceuticals, biotechnology, alongside other industries.

The focus will be on ‘Modular and Connected Production’, ‘The Digital Lab’ and ‘Product and Process Security’ – all very topical themes for the process industry. Digitalisation and climate neutrality will also be at the forefront of discussion. Full details at
