analytica China 2016 covered 35,000 square meters of exhibition space – an increase of 17 percent compared to the last event. 848 leading exhibitors (+ 22 percent) from 25 countries and districts attended the show. Again, Germany, the UK, Japan and Taiwan sent out their national or district pavilions to the exhibition.
New Food Safety Day
Since its first opening in 2002, the food processing industry has always been one of the focal points of analytica China. This year, apart from new products and technologies, analytica China collaborated with leading exhibitors and with industry organizations and users to set up a “Food Safety Day” including events like a CEO talk, the Sino-EU Food Safety Forum as well as Live Presentations and a visitor tour on the subject of food safety. The program covered the entire value chain of the industry and featured insightful expert talks on food safety, offering strong support to the development of this field.
Laboratory safety and health
For the first time ever, analytica China 2016 introduced a special show on lab safety and health, originated from its German parent fair analytica. Experts gave live presentations on “Lab fire prevention and explosive treatment”, “Safe handling of dangerous materials” and “Protect you and your employee from health risks” to offer the audience practical tips on how to react in face of danger. Further, leading lab construction enterprises and experts gave talks on lab construction and smart lab management.
Conference with 3,323 visitors
Apart from the exhibition, high-profile academic events have always been the highlight of analytica China. In 2016, the analytica China conference concentrated on technological applications and solutions, offering the visitors not only insights into the latest academic research findings but also the latest industry and product information. The conference provided over 100 expert lectures on current topics such as food safety, analytical chemistry, environment and pharmacy. 3,323 visitors from different fields attended the analytica China conference, an increase of 41 percent compared to the 2014 edition.
Another highlight was the concurrence of analytica China and China Brew China Beverage (CBB). CBB is one of Asia’s leading trade fairs for the beverage and liquid food industry and co-organized by Messe München. The co-location not only enabled the sharing of visitors, but also improved the influence of both exhibitions in the food industry, offering added value to exhibitors and visitors likewise.
The next analytica China takes place from October 31 to November 2, 2018, at the Shanghai New International Expo Center.
