Symbols for user industries show visitors the way

24 Oct 2019

Cleanroom technology is an interdisciplinary technology that is relevant for a wide range of high-tech industries that control contamination in their production processes. To guide visitors to the right exhibitors, Messe Frankfurt has developed symbols for different user industries for Cleanzone 2019. Now manufacturers of cleanroom technology can use these symbols to identify the industries for which they supply solutions.

Kerstin Horaczek, Group Show Director for Technology at Messe Frankfurt, explains the advantages: “Contamination control is required in ever more industries today, yet the requirements and standards often differ significantly. To help visitors make sense of what is on offer, we have introduced symbols for their applications. Now, visitors can immediately see which exhibitors offer solutions for their industry.” The advantages for exhibitors are plain to see: by using these symbols, they can address visitors for whom their innovations will be of interest.

A total of ten symbols will be guiding visitors at Cleanzone 2019, the international trade fair for contamination control and cleanroom technology, on 19 and 20 November in Frankfurt am Main:

  • Aerospace technology

  • Microelectronics / microsystems technology
  • Biotechnology
  • Pharmaceutical industry
  • Healthcare
  • Food technology

“Naturally we hope to create greater clarity with these symbols for industries and users, and with its interdisciplinary approach, Cleanzone offers the ideal venue for this,” adds Horaczek. Companies can also employ these symbols in their own publications for Cleanzone to indicate their areas of application.
