The huge success of the previous event in Cologne illustrated once more the high demand for bespoke chemicals and innovative products. With 380 exhibitors and 5,768 visitors from 56 countries, the event was the largest Chemspec of all times. ‘In a time driven by innovation and shorter product life cycles, the choice of the right suppliers and the exchange within international industry networks play a major role. At Chemspec Europe, leading international manufacturers and distributors present a wide range of fine and speciality chemicals for diverse industrial sectors,’ explains Nicola Hamann, Managing Director of the organiser, Mack Brooks Exhibitions.
