What our Attendees and Exhibitors are Saying:

 “I attend the Show to find suppliers with potential solutions to some of our current processing issues – and also to meet with contacts at suppliers we currently use,” Patrick Bier, Lord Corporation.

“The Chem Show is valuable to see new technologies and actual equipment, as well as face-to-face meeting with experts and vendors,” Francisco J. Rivas, DuPont Mexicana.

“The free seminars were very helpful. It was great to see raw data for the equipment on display,” Peter Tancini, Johnson Matthey.

“The Chem Show is a great place for all engineers to see how much various industries have in common,” Mary K. Lynch, Con Edison and Chair of NY Metro AIChE.

“Our business is working to diversify into other industries, and all of the people we’re trying to reach are here [at the Chem Show] because the Show attracts such a broad audience,” Tiffany Stolzenfeld, AMI/Cygnet.

“As with most engineers, visual experiences go a long way with understanding products and applications. The Chem Show gives me the opportunity to meet directly with vendors and interact with their equipment hands-on,” Hugh Jackson, King Industries.

“One of the great values of the Chem Show is the touchpoints. Interfacing and collaborating with a variety of end-users at a single venue…it’s powerful,” Al Lee, Emerson.
