Achema, the world forum and leading show for the process industries, will be staying in Frankfurt. The organiser, Dechema Ausstellungs-GmbH, and Messe Frankfurt have agreed to continue their successful collaboration for at least the next three events. The contract has been extended until 2024.
Achema has been taking place on Messe Frankfurt’s exhibition grounds since 1937, one of the international guest events in Frankfurt with a rich tradition. The trade fair is held once every three years. At last year’s event, some 3,800 exhibitors from around the world presented their products, processes and services. 166,444 participants from around the globe visited Achema in 2015. The next Achema will take place from 11 to 15 June 2018.
“We are very pleased with this development and are proud to be continuing our collaboration with Dechema. Achema is one of the biggest flagship events in the portfolio of technology trade fairs taking place in Frankfurt and is a key success factor for our Frankfurt base,” says Uwe Behm, Member of the Executive Board of Messe Frankfurt. Over the past decades, a very close partnership has developed with Dechema, one that is characterised by trust and respect. “It has been about eighty years since Achema found a home in Frankfurt, and even in today’s globalised world, we still have our roots here at the heart of Europe. Our international customers value Frankfurt’s outstanding transportation connections with the rest of the world and its excellent infrastructure, both on the exhibition grounds and in the surrounding region. With Messe Frankfurt, we also have an extremely reliable partner,” adds Dr.-Ing. Thomas Scheuring, Executive Director of Dechema Ausstellungs-GmbH.
