Participation in the fair

Why take part?

Since 1959, ILMAC has been the sole Swiss industry fair for chemicals and life sciences that depicts all the industrial applications in process and laboratory technology. As a user-oriented trade fair, ILMAC is geared to experts in pharmaceuticals, chemicals, biotechnology, food, drinks, cosmetics and others (see illustration below). Despite this wide range of sectors, ILMAC is still of particularly manageable proportions (it can be visited in a single day), is close to hand (staged in the midst of the pharmaceutical and chemical industries) and depicts the Swiss market in its entirety.
