The 35th international exhibition for fine and speciality chemicals will now take place as live and digital hybrid event from 29-30 September 2021.
Mack-Brooks Exhibitions has announced the postponement of Chemspec Europe 2021, which was scheduled to take place at Messe Frankfurt in Germany from 19 to 20 May 2021. Instead, the International Exhibition for Fine and Speciality Chemicals will run as an enhanced show from
29 to 30 September 2021, combining the physical event with an online platform. This decision was taken in light of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
“Continued uncertainties regarding travel restrictions and event planning by the authorities have prompted us to reassess the situation. It is our priority to minimise both health and economic risks for all participants, so we have come to the decision to hold the show in September 2021”, explained Liljana Goszdziewski, Portfolio Director of Chemspec Europe. “We believe that the most responsible decision at this stage is to postpone. However, with the rapid expansion of vaccination programmes globally and the implementation of Chemspec Europe as a hybrid event, we are confident to hold a successful show for exhibitors and visitors later this year.”
For the first time, Chemspec Europe will take place as a hybrid event, merging the established on-site offer with interactive digital networking opportunities. Visitors will have the chance to explore bespoke solutions, connect with the community and learn about the latest trends and developments – both face-to-face and online.
“Over the last 35 years, Chemspec Europe has become a powerful and well-known live event in the fine and speciality chemicals industry. Chemspec Digital 2020 showed that virtual exhibition stands and online meetings do indeed provide new sales opportunities and a successful way to generate business leads,” saidGoszdziewski. “Combining the two event formats will allow every exhibitor and visitor to attend Chemspec Europe 2021 in the way they feel most comfortable with – regardless of any lockdown regulations and travel restrictions,” concluded Goszdziewski.
