The 53rd edition of the Chem Show, Nov. 17-19, 2009, at New York’s Jacob K. Javits Convention Center, will feature a more targeted focus on sustainable and green process solutions and add several new enhancements to address the needs of both exhibiting companies and buyers, according to show organizers.
Based on extensive third-party research conducted with CPI professionals, it was discovered that an increasing number of decision makers (nearly 60%) are now coming to trade shows to find specific solutions to their processing challenges as opposed to just looking for new processing equipment.
In addition, the research study identified two challenges affecting the overall industry: global competition is driving the need for greater efficiency, and environmental concerns are pushing companies to be more sustainable and green in their operations.
To address these industry issues, the show will concentrate on these core processing areas:
• Process Controls and Automation Solutions – 67% of those surveyed currently use or will increase their usage of automation technologies.
• Optimizing Process Efficiency – 57% use or will increase their usage of wireless technologies: 52% currently use or will increase their usage of energy efficient technologies.
• Water/Wastewater Treatment – 51% of those surveyed currently use or will increase their usage of water/wastewater treatment technologies.
• Emerging Technologies – CPI professionals said they want to be kept abreast of emerging technologies. For example, 45% of those surveyed currently use or will increase their usage of Nanotechnology.
• Efficient Powder Processing – Cited by respondents, powder processing and bulk solids handling will require more efficient solutions to provide both safe operations and competitiveness in the global marketplace.
“Valuable industry input was critical in addressing a need for Sustainable and Green Process Solutions and The New Chem Show will be the leading forum and information resource where processing professionals can find the technologies and solutions they need to stay at the cutting edge of a changing global marketplace,” says Clay Stevens, president of International Exposition Company, which produces and manages The New Chem Show.
