If you do have any free time between business meetings then ACHEMA has a lot to offer you.

Factory Tours

Throughout the week, several companies will be conducting factory tours, including BASF and Merck KGaA. Full details are available on the ACHEMA website.

Congress

ACHEMA is not just about the exhibition and business meetings. There will also be panel discussions (held in German), plenary sessions and roundtables. A lot of topics will be on offer so it’s best to make use of ACHEMA’s Congress planner tool. Potential topics of interest to pharmaceutical and biopharmaceutical professionals include:

Tuesday - Development of pharmaceuticals, biocatalysts, process analytics, sustainable laboratories and more.

Wednesday - Sterile production, Process and quality control, novel bioreactors, single-use systems and the Germany bioindustry.

Thursday - Laboratory automation, continuous manufacturing, cell culture processes, and particle and nanoparticle analysis.

Friday - Downstream bioprocessing, coating and crystallisation, and more.

Excursions

If you’re lucky enough to have a free day on Wednesday then perhaps you’ll consider signing up for an excursion to the Upper Middle Rhine Valley, a UNESCO World Heritage site. Further details

Frankfurt

There’s also a lot to see in Frankfurt and if you’ve never visited before then you should try to take some time to see the city. We’ve compiled a short list of some of the top sites you may want to visit.
