The Venue

Cologne, Germany

Chemspec Europe 2018 will take place in hall 8 of Koelnmesse in Cologne, Germany. The Rhineland is one of the leading chemical regions in Europe where approximately 250 chemical companies with more than 80,000 employees are located. The structure of the companies is very diverse and represents the entire sector, from plastics processors and the pharmaceutical industry to manufacturers of personal care products, paints & coatings and rubber products.

Parts of the urban area of Cologne, along with sections of the neighbouring cities and districts, form the Cologne “chemical belt”. This region boasts large-scale chemical sites and chemical parks with a vast number of production plants where diverse chemical products are manufactured, from fuel for modern engines to highly complex active agent molecules for life science applications.

Whether you are coming from within Germany or abroad, Cologne and Koelnmesse can easily be reached by plane, car or public transport and is, therefore, an excellent venue for a successful Chemspec Europe 2018.
