The second Cleanzone, 22–23 October 2013, is off to a promising start with a stronger profile. Last year, the trade fair and congress made a successful debut as the new international industry meeting point for cleanroom technology. It is targeted towards all companies and sectors in which industrial production is taking place under cleanroom conditions today and tomorrow.
The 2013 trade fair will therefore be focusing even more precisely on visitors coming from two important industrial sectors. 'Technology & Micro-Technology' is targeted towards the micro-electronics, micro-system technology, semi-conductors, aerospace technology, optical and laser technology, automotive, electronics and precision engineering markets. 'Life Sciences' is aimed at pharmaceuticals, cosmetics, sterile production of food, medical research, pharmacies and biotechnology. Overlaps can be found in the areas of medical technology and packaging solutions.
Many companies have already confirmed their attendance as exhibitors. The flexibility of the overall concept, which allows exhibitors to present their products and services very individually, is particularly popular. “The industry welcomes our concept of showing cleanrooms in their various areas of application, explaining their use in practical terms. This applies both to the exclusive speaker programme on our Cleanzone Plaza stage area as well as to the exhibitor’s stand presentations. We are excited about the early announcement of a number of exhibitors to bring interactive and attractive exhibits to Cleanzone," said Johannes Schmid-Wiedersheim, Director of New Events at Messe Frankfurt Exhibition.
Cleanzone is the new international cross-sector meeting place for cleanroom technology. It is organised by Messe Frankfurt and supported by its marketing and content partner ReinraumAkademie Leipzig. Participants from 13 countries made their way to Frankfurt for the debut in October 2012 and both the trade fair and congress earned top marks: 89% of visitors and 84% of exhibitors were 'satisfied' or 'very satisfied' with the event's debut, 46% of visitors were from top management, and 88% stated that they were able to influence purchasing and procurement decisions in their companies.
Both the international scope and thematic range of the trade fair and congress are to be expanded in their second year. In 2013, Cleanzone will be held in Hall 1, alongside the CPhI Worldwide pharmaceutical ingredients event.
