Frankfurt, Singapore & Shang hai-CleanRooms magazine is kicking off its summer events in Frankfurt, Germany with Clean Rooms Europe (June 18-21, 2002). In July, the Group sets up shop in Singapore for CleanRooms Asia (July 30-August 1, 2002) and then it's off to Shanghai for the launch of CleanRooms China (August 5-6, 2002).

For the fifth consecutive year, CleanRooms Europe will take place in Frankfurt, Germany, at the Frankfurt Fair grounds (June 18-21). The trade fair, with over 150 exhibitors representing 10 different countries, will feature exhibits on products ranging from cleanroom design to consumables.

Running concurrently with the trade fair, this year's conferences will be held in German for the first time, appealing to local attendance. Session topics to be presented this year include: Validating a Cleanroom: AMC Techniques; and Particle Counting in Pharmaceutical Cleanrooms. CleanRooms Europe 2002 will be co-located with Optatec, the International Trade Fair for Optics and Optoelectronics Application and Technology.

CleanRooms Asia (July 30-August 1) will feature a Korean Pavillion on the exhibit floor, highlighting an event with more than 100 exhibitors. Occupying 3,000 square meters, attendees will have the opportunity to view and test the newest products and meet with leading vendors, manufacturers, suppliers and service contractors.

With more than 3,000 square meters, CleanRooms Asia attendees will have the opportunity to view and test the latest technology. TSMC leads this year's extensive conference program with a session on Factory Automation.

For the first time at the Clean Rooms Asia conference, representatives from TSMC will discuss Proper Integration Strategies for Factory Automation, while MSS Clean technology will examine present day Modular Cleanroom Designs.

During its hour-long session, TSMC will try to answer questions such as: “Which automation technologies are most effective?” and “What sort of problems has TSMC encountered?”

UK-based MSS Clean Technology will examine the differences between today's modular cleanrooms versus the first rooms constructed 25 years ago. “The combination of a modular host building with a cleanroom environment brings many advantages to the client and end user. Not only can quicker returns on investment be achieved but expansion, reconfiguration and even relocation can be undertaken with minimal disruption,” says Paul Stubley, speaker for MSS.

Rounding off the list of presenters is 14-year Purafil veteran, Chris Muller. Muller will discuss evaluating the effectiveness of AMC Control.

“Attendees will learn AMC control strategies for semiconductor fabs; chemical filtration application areas; various types of chemical filters and filtration systems; reactivity monitoring techniques; and evaluating AMC control strategies,” Muller says.

To close the summer show season, Clean Rooms is launching CleanRooms China. The show will take place August 5-6, at the Pudong Shangri La, Shanghai. Working in coordination with the US Commerce Department and the China Contamination Control Society, the CleanRooms Group will be offering a two-day conference and exhibition focusing on issues facing contamination control professionals.

Designed to help cleanroom suppliers break into the largest potential market in the world, CleanRooms China will be held in the Grand Ballroom at the Pudong Shangri-La Hotel.

Due to space restrictions, approximately 20 tabletop spaces will be available for exhibitors to reserve on a first-come, first-served basis.

“Venturing into China was the next logical step we could take to help our customers expand their businesses,” explained James Enos, vice president and group publishing director of the CleanRooms Group. “The exploding semiconductor and microelectronics markets in China as well as obvious concerns about clean manufacturing there made it a desirable area for both exhibitors and attendees. Set to open at the close of our CleanRooms Asia show in Singapore, CleanRooms China will be geographically convenient for our customers to participate more cost-efficiently.”
