The ACHEMA Digital Hub

Gathering point for digital experts and enthusiasts

Digitalization has established itself as one of the top items on the process industry agenda and has become an ever-stronger topic in the ACHEMA community - high time to close the ranks with the digital ecosystem at ACHEMA 2022!
Digitalization and the ensuing digital transformation has staked its claim way beyond the traditional realms of IT departments and arrived at the core of the ACHEMA community, sometimes with brute force. Expectations to leverage efficiencies and create new opportunities keep rising in sync with the breadth and speed of technologies becoming available to the industry. Technology, of course, is necessary but not sufficient for long-term success: people development and transformational leadership are just as important.
Many exhibitors have begun to partner with the digital ecosystem and digital players, on the other hand, sport some impressive industry-specific use cases by now.  But: A lot of work remains to be done. The implementation in process industry´s delicate processes is all but easy and many in our ACHEMA community are looking hard to find viable solutions that work and deliver what they promise. And, more importantly: Fit well into the often brownfield context and integrate effortlessly with each other and legacy systems already in place.
High time to close the ranks, we thought, and initiated the ACHEMA Digital Hub.

The Digital Hub Idea in a Nutshell

The Digital Hub will be the central gathering place for digital experts and enthusiasts at ACHEMA 2022. It will be the platform for exhibitors from the digital ecosystem showcasing highly relevant technologies and use cases that do not fit into the ACHEMA exhibition group categories. It will serve as an exhibition and meeting space as well as a learning and networking hub. A central stage and smaller break-out areas will provide the latest expert insights and allow for fruitful discussions with leaders and experts alike.
As a hub, it will also provide comprehensive linkages to other digital showcases across ACHEMA. After all, the Digital Hub is just one piece of the puzzle.

Focal Topics highlight hot digitalization topics across ACHEMA

Visitors will find a lot more digital solutions and use cases at the 3,700+ exhibitors or the ACHEMA Congress and PRAXISforums all across ACHEMA. Our ACHEMA 2022 focal topics will highlight some of the most pressing issues:

  • Modular and Connected Production
  • The Digital Lab
  • Product & Process Security

The Digital Hub concept was developed in close cooperation with leading protagonists from
the digital ecosystem. We are currently crafting the agenda and recruiting exhibitors. Care to join?

Looking forward to hearing from you:
