Further updates to our event horizon include a nine-month postponement of ACHEMA to April 2022, on the assumption that at least some travel restrictions will remain in place into the summer of 2021. However, ACHEMA attendees will still be able to meet virtually via the ACHEMA Pulse platform in June 2021.
ACHEMA 2021 postponed until 4-8 April 2022
This decision was taken after intensive discussions with the community and in the ACHEMA Committee in view of the continuing uncertainty caused by the Corona pandemic.
Seven months before the start the committee have decided to postpone ACHEMA to April 4-8, 2022 after intensive consultation with exhibitors and partners. With this early decision DECHEMA wants to give exhibitors planning security in the light of the long-term preparation and investment required by a show of this size. The ACHEMA Committee, representing the exhibitors, had previously also unanimously voted for a postponement to 2022, expressing at the same time their strong commitment to ACHEMA.
From 15-16 June 2021, the ACHEMA Pulse platform will offer the worldwide ACHEMA community the opportunity to learn about the latest trends and make new contacts with highlight sessions, top-class discussions and lectures as well as interactive formats. Presentations by top-class and visionary speakers will shed light on the latest topics in the process industry, linked to interactive discussion formats and lectures that address key global issues of relevance to the ACHEMA community.
In addition to the focus topics Digital Lab, Modular and Connected Production and Product and Process Security, these include the launch of the Digital Hub with its many aspects. Sustainability is also on the agenda of ACHEMA Pulse.

In this interactive competition teams of students, companies or start-ups develop solutions to questions that currently concern many companies.
