Cleanzone 2013 boasts large international component and increased number of visitors

Cleanzone 2013 boasts large international component and increased number of visitors

There were smiles all around in Frankfurt, as Cleanzone's continued growth was confirmed not only by an increase in the number of visitors, but also by high levels of visitor satisfaction. The trade fair and congress for cleanroom technology took place for the second time on 22 and 23 October 2013, drawing more than 800 participants from 44 countries to Hall 1 on the Frankfurt exhibition grounds.

“The Cleanzone 2013 concept was a success. Both the interdisciplinary approach and the sharper profile of the trade fair and congress were very well received, and we were able to reach new target groups from important sectors and countries,” stated Ruth Lorenz, Vice President of New Events at Messe Frankfurt. In all, Cleanzone increased the number of visitors by about a third (2012: 600 visitors). The 50 exhibitors (2012: 41) were particularly pleased with the high quality and international origin of the trade visitors: “At Cleanzone we were able to make good contacts with potential customers with concrete projects. Visitors came not only from neighbouring European countries, but also from markets that are new for us like Egypt, Algeria, India, Iran and Slovenia,” said Nico Thevissen, Senior Developer at Vision Competence Center / SAC-Nederland.

Messe Frankfurt launched Cleanzone in 2012 at the initiative of the cleanroom industry. This specialist event is aimed at all sectors where production, assembly, packaging or work is carried out under cleanroom conditions. Not only did the number of exhibitors and visitors increase, but the international share did as well. Providers from nine European countries welcomed trade fair and congress participants from around the world. The top five visitor countries were the Netherlands, Switzerland, Great Britain, the Russian Federation and the USA.

A strong practical focus and lively dialogue at the trade fair
The exhibitors at the trade fair used this year's significantly larger exhibition area to present nearly the entire range of what is on offer, from the planning, construction and operation of cleanrooms to consumables and training. Many exhibitors had unique and extremely attractive exhibits on display, offering cleanroom experts and newcomers alike the opportunity to test and get to know the technology in person. “We made a conscious decision to showcase a walk-in cleanroom and a model of an entire cleanroom system here at Cleanzone. Both of these exhibits drew a great deal of interest from visitors, giving rise to numerous promising talks,” reported Wolfgang Henker, Managing Director of Cleanroom Competence.

Dipl.-Phys. Thomas Wollstein, a professional physicist from the VDI Association of German Engineers, was in agreement: “Cleanzone has followed up its successful 2012 debut with an even better 2013 event. I saw a lot of new faces, and the ambience was significantly more dynamic. The interdisciplinary exchange really took off this year as well. Here, for example, the areas of life science and microelectronics actually engaged in a lively dialogue.” This dialogue took place not only at the trade fair stands, but also at the Cleanzone Plaza. In addition to a range of interesting presentations by experts and exhibitors, in 2013 this free event stage also played host to two outstanding discussions on “Interdisciplinarity in cleanroom technology – the ideal and the reality” and “New cleanroom standards”.

Congress shines the spotlight on the future of cleanroom technology
In 2013 the second Cleanzone Congress focused on the worldwide increase in requirements for industry and on new solutions for the healthcare sector. The outstanding quality of the presentations by international experts underscored the scientific credentials of this new platform, covering everything from cross-industry trends to specialist areas of cleanroom technology. “The trade fair and congress complement each other well: the exhibition shows where the industry is today, while the congress serves as an important forum for an international exchange in the cleanroom industry that illuminates future developments, as well as important background information,” said Dr. Kai Dirscherl, Researcher and Quality Manager at the Danish National Metrology Institute. One of the highlights of the congress was the appearance by cardiologist Dr. C. Luis Vasquez. With his riveting presentation on the diagnostic centre in Yantaló, a rural district in the Peruvian Amazon, the founder and president of the Yantaló Peru Foundation highlighted the special challenges posed by efforts to establish clean working environments in many of the world's rural areas – as well as the form that creative solutions can take.

Like last year, Reinraum-Akademie (Leipzig) was once again responsible for the content of the congress, and Managing Director Frank Duvernell was pleased with the trade fair and knowledge platform: “The level of technology here is already better than the norm. As an experienced expert, I am able to obtain valuable new insights here in Frankfurt, something that is often not the case at other events – an experience which I have in common with my colleagues in the industry.”

The second Cleanroom Award is won by “Blautouch”
Another highlight was the presentation of the Cleanroom Award sponsored by Reinraum-Akademie (Leipzig). This innovation award, which is worth 3,000 euros, went to the “Blautouch” project submitted by the Portuguese company Laborial S.A., which was represented at Cleanzone by its cooperation partner Basan GmbH. “Blautouch” is an interactive laboratory bench with a touchscreen surface. In his speech, Frank Duvernell stated that: “I am very pleased that the Cleanroom Award has generated such a tremendous response. Last year's winner has already shown that this award can provide a good idea with the public exposure it needs to develop into a successful business.”

The next Cleanzone will be taking place on 21 and 22 October 2014 on the Frankfurt exhibition grounds. You will find all of the information on Cleanzone in Frankfurt online at:
