ILMAC 2021 is bringing the laboratory and process technology sector together live for the first time this year

From 19 to 21 October 2021, the key suppliers in the industry will be meeting up at Switzerland’s leading trade fair for laboratory and process technology. As the sole industry platform being held in the German-speaking world this year, ILMAC will be the meeting point par excellence for the chemical and life sciences industries. This concentrated industry competence will be presenting knowledge, innovations, trends and new products over the course of the three days. ILMAC now also networks the industry digitally 365 days a year, thus contributing toward continual exchange and innovation within the sector.

At this year’s ILMAC Basel, some 250 exhibitors from the chemical, pharmaceutical, biotechnology, food, cosmetics, agrochemical, environment and plastics sectors are presenting new products, innovative solutions and trends in the life sciences industry. “We are delighted to be able to offer the industry a platform for meeting up live and engaging in discourse. With the Maintenance Excellence Arena, we are launching a new, interactive section focused on efficient servicing. We have additionally expanded our website into a community platform which will keep industry participants digitally networked for the entire year”, explains Michael Bonenberger, Director of ILMAC. 

Forums and round-tables on topical issues
