Online: Cleanzone is going digital

22 Sep 2020

Cleanzone will be taking place on 18 and 19 November 2020 as a purely virtual event. Messe Frankfurt made this decision in close consultation with the Cleanzone strategy commission and the industry.

Rising COVID-19 case numbers and stricter travel restrictions make it difficult or impossible for exhibitors and visitors from outside Germany in particular to take part in Cleanzone in person.

Kerstin Horaczek, Group Show Director Technology Messe Frankfurt: “These conditions make it impossible for Cleanzone to take place in Frankfurt this November in a way that would do justice to its role as a highly international industry gathering. Even so, the cleanroom industry and their user sectors from all high-tech industries continue to need and want an international meeting place this autumn where they can engage in dialogue about the latest developments in the field of contamination control and join forces to promote their innovations. That is why, in collaboration with the industry and the strategy commission, we have decided to provide this platform in the digital realm.”

Virtual Cleanzone offers exhibitors lots of attractive new business functions, as well as the opportunity to give multimedia presentations of their products and actively network with their customers using AI-supported matchmaking. Visitors will not only be able to speak with exhibitors, but also view product demonstrations, interactively participate in highly relevant specialist presentations, vote for this year’s Cleanzone Award winner and view the award ceremony live.

Horaczek added that: “We will be marketing the digital Cleanzone event worldwide – our international sales network is ready. Our efforts will be aided by the experience we have already gained organising virtual trade fairs.”

The latest developments have made it clear just how important international exchange and dialogue is. Now more than ever, innovations are needed to manage contamination risks in the field of industrial high-tech production. The fight against COVID-19 has also benefited from the expertise of cleanroom specialists – their solutions have been utilised not only in the field of medicine, but also in everyday life. Other areas of focus at the virtual Cleanzone trade fair include modular cleanroom systems and the importance of cleanroom technology in battery production. As an international trade fair, Cleanzone is an indispensable meeting place in which these issues can be discussed.

The event is aimed at decision-makers from all industries that use or build cleanroom production facilities or that are considering their future use to ensure high product quality – from the pharmaceutical and medical technology industries to the food industry, the field of microtechnology and the automotive industry.

Additional information and registration for the event will soon be available on our website.
