Chemspec Europe

Join us for the 30th Chemspec Europe

The event will be free to attend as usual and will feature a wide range of conferences, seminars, workshops and networking opportunities, as well as some new features to celebrate the 30th edition of the event – including birthday prizes announced to random visitors each hour of the exhibition. 



There’s something special about Chemspec Europe. With a focused range of exhibits, easily identified feature areas, free-to-attend conferences and seminars in a relaxed atmosphere with quality ‘face-time’, the event is the perfect place have business meetings, learn from others and network with the global industry.THE 30TH EDITION OF CHEMSPEC EUROPE – UNRIVALLED IN EUROPE

Over the past 30 years, Chemspec Europe has undergone significant development and gained popularity within the industry due to its evolution from a simple trade show to a networking event. This transformation has been shaped by input from exhibitors and visitors to Chemspec Europe. Having taken on board feedback from members across the whole industry, Chemspec Europe has developed key partnerships with the European Fine Chemicals Group (EFCG), Royal Society of Chemistry (RSC), Scientific Update and REACHReady to ensure the delivery of top-class content in free-to attend seminars and workshops.

The ensuing result has seen Chemspec Europe developing into a multi-faceted networking event dedicated to the fine, custom and speciality chemicals industry, which will open its doors in 2015 in Cologne, Germany, celebrating the 30th edition of the show.
