ACHEMA 2022 to be moved from April to August 2022


ACHEMA 2022 – the World Forum for the Process Industries – will be held at the Frankfurt Fairground from 22 to 26 August 2022, instead of 4 to 8 April 2022 as originally planned. This decision was made in view of the increasing uncertainty caused by the new Corona variant after intensive discussions with the community and in the ACHEMA Committee.

"As a global meeting place for the process industries, we are looking with concern at the newly emerging travel restrictions," says Dr.-Ing. Thomas Scheuring, CEO of DECHEMA Ausstellungs-GmbH. "Despite the extensive hygiene concept for ACHEMA, which was originally planned for April 2022, we would like to enable our visitors and exhibitors to meet on site as carefree as possible after a two-year dry spell and the longing for an ACHEMA at their fingertips. We don't see that for April 2022 at the moment and are therefore postponing ACHEMA to end of August."

The organisers see the postponement by four months to late summer 2022 as an opportunity to ensure an international ACHEMA. "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.

After intensive discussion with partners and within the ACHEMA Committee, representing the exhibitors, the decision was made in favour of ACHEMA as a presence exhibition from 22 to 26 August 2022. With this early decision, DECHEMA also wants to give exhibitors planning security: After all, for them a major event like ACHEMA means a long-term preparation and investment effort.

"Apart from the date, nothing will change about the planned ACHEMA 2022," Scheuring sums it up: Trendsetting technology and worldwide networking will characterise the world's leading trade fair when manufacturers and service providers present their products and solutions for chemistry, pharmaceuticals, biotechnology, energy and the environment in August 2022. Founders and young entrepreneurs will meet in the Start-up Area.

With the focus topics "Modular and Connected Production", "The Digital Lab" and "Product and Process Security", ACHEMA 2022 will address the issues that are preying on the mind of the process industry. In addition, the megatopics of digitalisation and climate neutrality are moving even more into the focus of ACHEMA with the "Digital Hub" and the "Green Innovation Zone".
