AchemAsia marks the start of the major push in China to catch up to Western markets in the fields of chemical engineering and biotechnology. The exhibition was held for the very first time in 1989 and has been instrumental in opening China to international investors and buyers. It’s also been a great source of inspiration and a place to learn about the latest technologies. One of its strengths is the scope of products and solutions accessible to visitors. We are talking about the entire processing chain from analysis technology to packaging to storage to quality assurance and repair. There’s also a lot of focus on plants and machinery for the chemical industry, biotechnology, plants and machinery for the petrochemical engineering, process conducting systems and more. AchemAsia is also important because it’s part of the government’s structured plan to push modernization to new levels.

AchemAsia arrives every three years in Shanghai, China to packed halls at the National Exhibition & Convention Center. The international exhibition is typically held in the spring with editions at the start of April. AchemAsia prepares an involved technical programme and networking events across five days total. AchemAsia is brought to you by DECHEMA Ausstellungs-GmbH with the generous support from and coordination with the Chemical Industry and Engineering Society of China (CIESC). The exhibition is one of the less frequent trade shows in China with editions held only once every three years. Only trade professionals are admitted entry. The National Exhibition & Convention Center is an excellent location in Shanghai close to an airport and well connected to public transport. The easiest way to get to the exhibition centre is via metro, which runs through the entire city. There’s also ample parking suitable for cars and larger transportation such as buses and shuttles. 

  • “It is safe to say AchemAsia has witnessed China’s three decades of reform and opening up and China’s extraordinary performance,” – Chen Lei, deputy head of department at the China Association of Science and Technology;
  • “With the new concept, we are offering exhibitors and visitors a platform that concentrates on the topics that are currently occupying the industry,” – Dr. Thomas Scheuring, CEO of DECHEMA Exhibitions;
  • “As we walk through the hall, we see many attractive stands, and exhibitors and visitors in lively conversation. There is a lot for every player in the process industry to discover here, and I am convinced that many visitors will seize this opportunity," – Dr. Björn Mathes, Deputy Managing Director of DECHEMA Ausstellungs-GmbH;

Time to discuss the numbers. Last edition recorded 330 exhibitors representing 16 countries and a total of 10,000 trade visitors. It’s also important to note just how international the exhibition is. A third of all exhibitors are foreign nationals, coming from Germany, India, Great Britain, Taiwan, Mexico, Italy, Japan and South Korea. Out of all visitors, 66% are from industry sectors followed by trade, university and research, and miscellaneous fields. As far as to what professional duties these visitors perform, you have people in planning and construction, research and development, production, materials testing, consulting, information and data processing and sales. What this shows is how comprehensive AchemAsia is and that it meets the needs of every professional. It’s the best way to penetrate the Chinese market, which has proven itself to be quite hungry for outside products.
