ACHEMA Start-up Area

Discover the new Start-up Area at the world forum and the leading show for the process industries. Present the latest technologies, expand your network and find investors.


Tailor-made environment

ACHEMA was and is an important platform for young businesses to come into contact with the global process industry. In 2022, with the Start-up Area we are creating a location tailored to the specific needs of young entrepreneurs in the Innovation Hall 6.0:

  • Affordable booths offer you the greatest possible visibility on the world stage. 
  • Special formats ensure that you can present yourself in the best possible way and expand your network.
  • In addition to customers, investors, incubators and accelerators also have their place in the Start-up Area.
  • For more mature start-ups, special conditions continue to be available in all exhibition groups.
