Chemspec meets Basel Trend show for fine and specialty chemical industries
The 31st Chemspec Europe takes place this year at Messe Basel. The event has long been promoted as a must-attend event in the industry. On 1st and 2nd June, visitors can expect top-class workshops and conferences in addition to the exhibition..
If it was Cologne last year, this year it is Basel – from the Chemistry Triangle in Cologne to Life Science Cluster in Basel – the fine and specialty chemical industries show, Chemspec Europe knows where things are buzzing in the industry.
With Roche, Novartis, Sandoz, Solvay and several medium-sized enterprises, Basel is one of the important locations of fine and specialty chemical industries and combines three of the most powerful countries of Europe in the industry: Germany, France and Switzerland.
Good business contacts should thus be actually guaranteed. Quite in line with this, the exhibition space increased by 10 percent by which the organiser, Mack Brooks Exhibitions hopes to beat last year’s record of 380 exhibitors once again – already 320 exhibitors booked beginning of January.
Major Theme: Outsourcing
Outsourcing as a theme plays an important role: fewer and fewer pharmacy and agro companies view the production of active substances as core competence and are thus seeking specialised companies, which develop and produce by order and are integrated closely in the supply chain as partners, for the exclusive syntheses of their active substances.
“In an innovation-driven time with increasingly shorter product life cycles, the choice of the right supply source and the interaction in international industry networks play an important role”, explains Nicola Hamann, event manager for Mack Brooks Exhibitions.
Good times then, for a highly specialised exhibition such as Chemspec Europe, which in the last few years has developed as a must-attend event for buyers, dealers and agents who want to meet international producers and distributors for fine and specialty chemicals. The product range presented is immense. Visitors find active and highly active pharmaceutical ingredients (APIs, HAPIs), pharmaceutical auxiliaries and pharmaceutical intermediates as well as adhesives and sealants and mining chemicals.
