ACHEMA 2009 - MEETING PLACE FOR GLOBAL PUMP AND VALVE USERS



Despite the global financial situation, we are told that exhibitor bookings for the three Pumps and Valves Halls at ACHEMA 2009 are running at record levels. Three months before the show, 930 companies have booked space. The final 2006 figure of 945 exhibitors will almost certainly be exceeded by the time the show opens in May. Thirty-seven British companies have booked space so far.

With many companies seeking larger booths, the amount of space requested is 50% higher than in 2006. As a result, the original space allocated by the organisers is now fully booked and there is a waiting list for new applicants, pending the release of additional exhibition area.

The growth in exhibitor numbers is entirely made up from companies from outside of Germany, which now account for 50% of the total.

The exhibition as a whole, which is spread across 22 halls, is approaching capacity, with many halls already fully booked.

The driving force seems to be energy related investment, both for the suppliers in the oil, gas and power sector who are building new plant and for users in the chemical, pharmaceutical processing and environmental sectors investing in new energy-efficient plant.

BVAA members will be well represented in the Pumps and Valves halls, having booked directly, via parent or sister companies or on the booths of their distributors. BVAA will also be exhibiting in its own right.
