The cleanroom trade fair Cleanzone increases its scope

4 Sep 2018

Some 80 companies will be presenting their products and services at Cleanzone on 23 and 24 October 2018 in Frankfurt am Main (2017: 64 exhibitors). 34 percent more exhibition space has been booked than at the previous event, and nearly one third of trade visitors are coming to Frankfurt from abroad.

With approx. 80 international exhibitors and over 30 percent more exhibition space, Cleanzone will be showcasing an even greater range of products and services on 23 and 24 October in Frankfurt am Main. The trade fair is benefiting from optimism in the industry as the areas of application for cleanroom technology continue to increase. Technical change is creating new high-tech products such as low-emission automotive drive systems, high-resolution image recognition systems and highly complex medications, all of which are produced in ultra-clean environments. As an interdisciplinary event, Cleanzone is aimed at all industries in which cleanrooms are utilised.

The event again features a large international component, with some 30 percent of the exhibitors coming from outside Germany. Besides Germany, the most important exhibitor countries include Austria, Switzerland and Great Britain, with other companies travelling to Frankfurt from Korea, Hong Kong, Italy, Belgium, the Netherlands and Turkey. The German Cleanroom Institute (DRRI), a group under the aegis of and the Austrian Cleanroom Society (ÖRRG) will also be hosting large joint stands.

Market leaders from every area of cleanroom technology – including planning, operation, qualification and validation – will be presenting their wares in Hall 5.1 at the trade fair. In the consumables and clothing product area, exhibitors including Alsco, Alsico Hightech, basan/VWR, Clear & Clean, Contec, CWS-boco, Freudenberg, IAB, MEC Industries and Micronclean will be presenting their new products and innovations. The list of leading companies exhibiting in the field of construction and commissioning includes Colandis, Daldrop, Kelvin, MK Versuchsanlagen, Ritterwand, Spetec and Viessmann Technologies, while a roster of firms such as Asys, BSR, Cleanroom Technology Austria, Dittel Engineering and Ingenieurbüro Buchta will be showcasing their innovations for planning cleanroom systems. Measurement and monitoring specialists exhibiting at the event include Beckman Coulter, Briem Steuerungstechnik, Siemens, TSI and vali.sys. The roster of companies with new cleaning processes in their portfolios includes Pfennig Reinigungstechnik, Piepenbrock and profi-con, while Fraunhofer IPA, the Hermann-Rietschel-Institut at the Technical University of Berlin and the Swiss Federal Institute of Metrology (METAS) will all be presenting their latest research findings at the fair.

The trade fair's areas of focus are based on trends in the industry, meaning that modern personalised medicine, biotechnologically produced pharmaceuticals, digital process simulations for construction and production, and various aspects of data and counterfeit protection will all be addressed at the event. At the Cleanzone Conference, four presentation series – ‘Cleanroom for life’, ‘Upgrade your cleanroom efficiency’, ‘Clean life sciences – the next level’ and ‘Cleanrooms: Modelling the future’ – will be tackling the top themes from the fair, delivering expertise for cleanroom operators in fields ranging from life sciences to microtechnology for experts and newcomers alike.

In addition to the scientific and academic presentations at the conference, Cleanzone Plaza, located right at the heart of the trade fair, will be the scene of panel discussions, exhibitor presentations, the presentation of the nominees for ReinraumAkademie’s Cleanroom Award 2018 and the awards ceremony itself. The international character of the trade fair is also evident in the Cleanzone Plaza programme. The country profiles, which were launched with great success in 2017, are being continued. In 2018 the topics in focus include opportunities and risks for entering the Russian market, with a presentation being given by respected Russia expert Alex Stolarsky from the Schneider Group. Other highlights at the Cleanzone Plaza include a panel discussion on the future of cleanroom technology entitled ‘Cleanroom technology 5.0’, the use of mobile laboratories for the development of substitutes for antibiotics and a presentation on international product liability law.
