At ZELLCHEMING-Expo, which will take place from 4-6 July at Messe Frankfurt, Germany, visitors will gain exclusive and current insights into future challenges and new approaches along the entire value chain of pulp and paper making. Especially at the show forum, participants will not only be informed about the main topic “Industry 4.0”, but also inspired for new development opportunities in their companies. Web journalist and TV host Richard Gutjahr will give a keynote speech on the first day of the show, which will focus on the reinvention of the paper industry.

“Not even every second member of the paper industry believes that digitalisation, Internet of Things, and Industry 4.0 will have a deep impact on their own businesses. However, history teaches us: Especially those who feel the safest, will be hit by change the hardest. The lecture is supposed to show, why the step from the analogue to the hyper-connected digital age will be larger than the invention of letterpress and why no industry will be spared by it.”

At the exhibition of ZELLCHEMING-Expo, about 150 companies will showcase their latest products and services. Besides renowned key players such as ABB Automation, Andritz, Siemens, Pöyry, Valmet and Voith Paper, many smaller and medium-sized companies will be present. Moreover, the “Newcomer Pavilion” will include numerous first-time exhibitors.
