All about paper
Speaking to Simone Pfisterer, Vice President, Mesago Messe Frankfurt GmbH
Which tried and trusted and which new offerings can visitors look forward to? This year, Zellcheming-Expo has many new highlights to offer, most of which are included in the three-day event ticket. This year there will be a focus on further education. The Zellcheming-Forum has been made more interactive and has even more top-class contributions in its program – for example, the lecture by Ulf Tillmann from IKEA on «IKEA packaging material fibre strategy». There are completely new seminars and workshops on occupational safety and energy by Jörg Mauel and Bernd Maur; these enable visitors to effectively combine their trade fair attendance with certificate training. A further novelty at this years’ exhibition is the guided tour on five different topics, designed to facilitate contact between exhibitors and visitors: digitization, maintenance, drying, machine cross direction profiles and clean processes. In 2019, special attention will be paid to the subject of maintenance, which can be experienced first-hand through the premiere of the joint stand «Road of Maintenance» with a showcase arena, which will present live repairs, use cases and short presentations. Zellcheming-Expo offers popular networking events to exchange ideas in a more informal, relaxed atmosphere – away from the hustle and bustle of the days at the Expo. Visitors can look forward to the get-together event «After Fair» on the first evening and the summer evening on the second day, which takes place as a skyline party over the rooftops of Frankfurt. Additionally, Zellcheming-Expo is aiming to strengthen women in the industry with the Women4Paper Day following its successful launch in 2018. This year, there are also a lot of highlights for young people in the industry – the Science Flash, the Mentoring Program and the «Treffpunkt Zukunft» (Future Meeting Point) joint stand. Visitors are invited to see just what the newcomers are offering.
