Organisers of ACHEMA 2021 have decided to postpone the event until 4–8 April 2022 but have added a virtual event, ACHEMA Pulse, which will take place from 15–16 June 2021.
The decision was taken after intensive discussions within the ACHEMA community and with the ACHEMA Committee, which represents exhibitors, in view of the continuing uncertainty caused by the Covid-19 pandemic. The virtual event, ACHEMA Pulse, will offer the worldwide ACHEMA community the opportunity to learn about the latest trends, make new contacts with highlight sessions and take part in discussions and lectures in safe, interactive formats.
The organisers see the postponement as an opportunity to create a diverse, lively and multi-sensorial ACHEMA 2022. "We want to meet the expectations of exhibitors and visitors for an ACHEMA." explains Dr Björn Mathes, member of the Executive Board of DECHEMA Ausstellungs-GmbH. "This requires a comprehensive exhibition programme and the opportunity for personal contact.”
From 15–16 June 2021, ACHEMA Pulse will provide a virtual alternative with presentations by top class speakers who will discuss the latest topics in the process industry, linked to interactive discussion formats and lectures that address key global issues relevant to the ACHEMA community.
