Dear ipw reader,

wow! The new venue for Zellcheming is a stark contrast to the venue in Wiesbaden. Alone the approach towards the West gate with Frankfurt's skyline as a background is representative of the modern, state-of-the-art fairgrounds. Everything is perfectly organized and the 'move' seems to be a success. We hope the visitors and exhibitors agree. To get an impression you can watch two videos here. They are a brief walk, once back and forth in the exhibition hall 11 (not all aisles and booths are visible, just a portion).

Frankfurt is easy to reach, so we hope to see you! Visit us at booth E10.

As always, please find recent news from our website below.
