Basel is one of Europe's most important life science regions. Almost two thirds of those employed in the Swiss pharmaceutical industry work in the life science cluster. This provides the ideal setting for ILMAC, the Swiss Specialist Fair for Process and Laboratory Technology, which is being staged for the 20th time at Messe Basel from Tuesday, 20 September to Friday, 23 September 2016. ILMAC is designed as a networking platform and, with some 430 exhibitors, provides a representative overview of the sector. The topic of "Industrie4.0" is being addressed in the ILMAC Forum, on the basis of concrete examples. And other highlights will ensure that those attending experience an informative, inspiring and worthwhile visit.

Since it was founded in 1959, ILMAC has developed into the leading Swiss supplier fair for pharmaceuticals, chemicals, biotechnology, food, beverages and cosmetics. As processes within the companies are now undergoing a change, new concepts are called for. At ILMAC, exhibitors are presenting holistic approaches, new products, innovations and also solutions for the field of process and laboratory technology.


First-hand information

The lecture series in the ILMAC Forum, and especially the Lunch&Learn sessions at midday, reflect the topical issue of "Industrie4.0" in the sector. Visitors will benefit from the practical experience and valuable knowledge of successful entrepreneurs and experts from the fields of research, development and education.

Live demonstrations

In LabTec4.0, visitors can experience the latest products in practical use, under expert guidance. The key topic of clean rooms is being presented in the Cleanroom Control communal zone. And since chemical processes play a role in the kitchen too, the Cooks Training Corps of the Swiss Armed Forces Culinary Team is being featured at ILMAC.

Networking event

To give busy specialists and also expats who are not yet familiar with ILMAC the opportunity to visit the fair, ILMAC is remaining open until 19:00 on Wednesday, 21 September 2016, and offering additional attractions.

Strong partners

With Endress+Hauser as the Main Partner Process, one of the world's leading suppliers of measuring devices, services and solutions for industrial process engineering and automation is supporting ILMAC. The ILMAC Forum is being organised by the Swiss Chemical Society and supported by the Metrohm company as Forum Partner.

Concentrated life science power

ILMAC 2016 is being held under the umbrella of the Basel Life Science Week. Admission tickets to ILMAC are also valid for the Basel Life Science Week international congress and for the MipTec in the Congress Center Basel.
