CHEM SHOW attracts thousands

The 2001 CHEM SHOW attracted close to 16,000 CPI professionals (some 10,000 registered attendees and over 6,000 exhibitor personnel) to its 49th exposition and conference on 23–25 October in the Jacob Javits Convention Center, New York City. According to show management and interviews with many of the exhibitors, although traffic was down from previous years, the industry professionals who made the trip to New York were highly motivated. “As everybody anticipated, the attendance was down from our last event in 1999,â€? said Clay Stevens, president of International Exposition Company (IEC). “But given the circumstances, the majority of the exhibitors I spoke to were very pleased with the level of serious interest in their products.â€?
The biennial Show is the largest event in North America for the CPI, as well as the industry’s leading marketplace for new products and technologies. This year’s show featured approximately 850 exhibitors showcasing the latest innovations for the chemical process industries over the 170,000-sq-ft of exhibit space. It is also one of the oldest trade shows in existence, having been held regularly in New York since 1915.
