This year’s Chemspec took place on June 20th and 21st. Europe’s leading trade fair for fine and specialty chemicals offers a broadly diversified and at the same time a highly specialized business platform for chemical companies all over the world. The audience consists exclusively of industry representatives of fine and specialty chemicals. So all in all the Chemspec is the ultimate chemical fair. But – as the figures show – this is just the beginning!
With 400 exhibitors from 29 countries and 4.000 visitors the fair has seen an increase compared to the previous year yet again. While the the numbers of visitors and exhibitors rose by 2 %, the exhibition space increased by even 5 % as the fair is enjoying greater and greater popularity among chemical companies from abroad.
And rightfully so! Year after year Chemspec is earning top marks when it comes to satifaction; among the exhibitors as well as among the visitors. 78 % of all companies on-site evaluated the visitor quality top marks. 85 % could successfully build business relationships and – believe it or not – 93 % stated to have reached their goals for the fair completely or partly. That corresponds with the 87 % of visitors who were highly satisfied with the fair.
Therefore all indicators also point toward success for 2019. The fair will take place in Basel from June 26th to June 27th – of course we are also going to be there again as an exhibitor!
Because not only the fair itself was a success but also the Häffner group could give a fully positive verdict. Represented by Häffner GmbH & Co. KG as well as by GB-Chemie we were present with two strong flagships.
While Häffner GmbH & Co. KG focused on the presentation of the new Iodine-Pocket Guides as a priority topic, GB-Chemie committed themselves to „Green Chemistry.“ This means consistently sustainable, green alternatives which are biodegradable, GMO-free, and completely soluble in water. On the basis of these properties they are one step ahead of the regulatory changes and are not being classified as CMR.
This has also thrilled the international expert audiences! During the Häffner expo party on the first day of the fair the Häffner group exclusively received great praise for its pioneering innovations & solutions. Reinforced by a lot of new contacts and suggestions we are already looking forward to Chemspec 2019.
