ZELLCHEMING-Expo 2019 provided comprehensive insight into major topics of industry

The ZELLCHEMING-Expo (from 25 – 27 June 2019), platform for the European pulp, paper and supplier industry, presented numerous innovations, popular networking events as well as a wide range of products and presentations along the entire value chain – from traditional processes to innovative solutions.

The exhibition offered visitors the opportunity to meet national and international exhibitors along the entire value chain of the pulp and paper industry and to exchange their ideas on the industry's trend topics. Of the 139 exhibitors, including 15% more main exhibitors than in the previous year, 42% were new exhibitors this year.



A new joint stand had its premiere this year, the "Road of Maintenance". At the exhibition stands and on the Showcase Arena with live repairs, use cases and short presentations, visitors were able to obtain information about the products from companies in the field of maintenance in the paper industry.

Companies wishing to exhibit at the ZELLCHEMING-Expo for the first time had the opportunity to present themselves at the Newcomer Pavilion. The stand was sold out well in advance.

Another successful innovation included the guided tours on the topics of digitization, maintenance, drying, machine cross direction profiles and clean processes, where visitors were able to gain a first-hand overview of the exhibitors' offerings on these trend topics.

Future-oriented further training options at a high level

With a comprehensive lecture program, the ZELLCHEMING-Expo provided visitors with a variety of further training opportunities for their individual fields of application. At the ZELLCHEMING-Forum, which was designed with new, interactive formats, the focus was on current topics such as bioeconomics, paper industry 4.0 and paper, end consumers and consumption 4.0, which were presented with a practical focus.

Future topics that are relevant for all companies were also discussed; such as "The Great Debate - Pioneering Innovative and Sustainable Solutions", "Generation Z enters the job market: How to reach teenagers sustainably", tools for companies to protect themselves from hacking…

Varied networking platform

Many exhibitors and visitors value the ZELLCHEMING-Expo due to its numerous networking opportunities. Evening events such as the "After Fair" and "Summer´s Evening" with Skyline Party over the rooftops of Frankfurt hosted by the ZELLCHEMING e.V. were well-attended attractions designed to make new contacts and strengthen existing ones.

The Women4Paper Day, a breakfast reception organized exclusively for women in the pulp and paper industry with a keynote speech by Prof. Dr. Zollner-Croll on the subject of "What role do women play in the paper industry", was also a great success.

The next ZELLCHEMING-Expo will take place in Frankfurt am Main from 23 - 25 June 2020.
