Three months before the show, the number of confirmed exhibitors for analytica China 2014 has exceeded 650, which means a considerable increase of around ten percent compared to the final results of 2012. In addition, many countries are planning to join as national pavilions, among them Germany, Japan, Korea and the UK. The exhibitor application is available until July 24, 2014.
From September 24 to 26, 2014 analytica China will open at the Shanghai New International Expo Center (SNIEC) with an exhibition space of 30,000 square meters. Three exhibition areas – Hall N1 for Life Sciences, Biotechnology and Diagnosis, Hall N2 for Analysis and Quality Control, and Hall N3, newly-added for Laboratory Equipment and Technology – will feature the trade show.
Susanne Groedl, Exhibition Director Messe München, states: “In face of the expansion of exhibition space, the exhibitor numbers already exceed our expectations. analytica China has become an important channel for the exploration of the Chinese and Asian market and that is why so many new exhibitors are joining us. They will bring analytica China 2014 new energy as well as more new products and ideas for the visitors and end users.”
As the influence and recognition of analytica China increase, many new exhibitors are going to participate. They are also from new areas such as life sciences, diagnosis, material analysis, food analysis, biotechnology services and third-party testing. By the end of June 2014, analytica China has seen registrations of around 200 new exhibitors, amongst others Abcam, Aladdin, AMT Group, ANEST IWATA, Beijing Sunway, Bel Engineering S.R.L., Bronkhorst, FOSS ANALYTICAL, Japan SHINWA CHEMICAL, Newport, Taiwan Papago, Taiwan Protech Technology, Think-lab, TSI, Wilsonart and 3M.
Further, the high level of interest from outside China is underlined by the strong participation of exhibitors at the German pavilion. Currently the exhibition space of the joint stand amounts to more than 500 square meters which consequently makes it the biggest German pavilion in the history of analytica China. Amongst others, the following companies have announced their presence: Andreas Hettich GmbH & Co KG, Berthold Detection Systems GmbH, IKA Works Guangzhou, Schmidt + Haensch GmbH as well as Waldner Laboreinrichtungen.
