In 2022 PemoPUMPS is taking part in several exhibitions. Until a few decades ago, sector events were practically the only way to promote companies, products and services worldwide. Pump exhibitions were also included in this category.
Thanks to web and social media, nowadays information circulates much more easily and quickly. For example, a well-made video can effectively illustrate the features and operations of a product, or help strengthen the image of a company or brand. Online events, seminars and webinars can promote companies, professionals and products without any limitation, even at a relatively low cost.
Yet national and international industry events such as successful pump exhibitions still exist. They offer opportunities that digital can only get close to, and which become real through face-to-face meetings and handshakes.
Attending trade fairs is for Pemo PUMPS an opportunity for:
- meeting people interested in our business and networking;
- exchanging know-how with companies in our sector or in related industries;
- opening the door to possible collaborations and jobs;
- acquiring leads, i.e. obtaining contacts from possible customers;
- come into contact with new markets at international trade fairs;
- strengthening the identity and recognizability (identity) of the brand.
The centrifugal slurry pump industry is not an exception. If much of the marketing takes place online, slurry pump exhibitions still represent a valuable opportunity to promote the company and its products.
In this article, we will discover the main fairs for slurry pump exhibitions, in which also Perissinotto S.p.A. – Pemo PUMPS has taken or will take part in 2022.
Ifat Monaco May 30 May – June 3
IFAT is the largest exhibition for environmental technologies in the world, to which Pemo PUMPS will attend. It is the most important exhibition for all companies that deal directly or indirectly with the management of water, wastewater, waste and raw materials. It is normally held every two years, but the 2020 edition was not held due to COVID-19.
IFAT 2022 takes place from May 30 to June 3, in the usual setting of the Munich Trade Fair Centre. The previous edition, in 2018, saw the participation of 3,305 exhibitors from all over the world, spread over 260,000 square metres of exhibition space, and over 142,000 visitors.
Although it is not exactly one of the main pump exhibitions, slurry pumps find place as essential components of the treatment of clear water, wastewater, sludge and municipal waste. In fact, the slurry pumps are the protagonists of these processes on which the attention of the show and its visitors is focused.
What is exhibited?
The huge IFAT exhibition spaces display the services and products of companies that deal with:
- waste collection and transport;
- vehicles and superstructures;
- waste treatment and recycling;
- biological treatment and composting;
- plants and equipment for recycling, conditioning and use of secondary raw materials;
- mechanical transmission, fluid technology and power generation units;
- general purpose equipment, devices and accessories;
- safety and accident prevention;
- and more.
Perissinotto S.p.A. – Pemo Pumps, present in HALL B1 at stand 134, exhibits two models of centrifugal slurry pumps at the fair:
- K125-AI AO / TD / AS-B55
- 403 SUM.
The first is a horizontal slurry pump, the second a submersible slurry pump. Both models are designed to withstand high pressures and highly abrasive particles, ensuring long life and ease of maintenance.
Type of events in IFAT
As in all pump exhibitions, there are various themed events such as forums and debates, presentations, guided tours and live demonstrations.
The events revolve around some specific issues:
- future of water;
- circular economy and resource efficiency;
- sustainable cities and municipalities;
- intelligent drives and zero emissions.
Peculiarities of IFAT exhibition
The peculiarity of IFAT is certainly given by the centrality of environmental issues, which goes beyond the simple show of the most recent and innovative technologies and also involves the typical aspects of the circular economy and efficiency in the use of resources and raw materials.
Exponor Chile exhibition June 13 – June 16
Exponor Chile exhibition is one of the leading international exhibitions for technologies and innovations in the mining and energy sector, in which Pemo PUMPS is leader.
Although this event is not specifically included in the exhibitions of slurry pumps, the latter are a crucial part of the processes that characterise these sectors.
Exponor 2022 takes place from 13 to 16 June in Antofagasta, a port city in northern Chile, approximately 1,100 kilometres north of the capital Santiago.
National and international companies and suppliers from the mining and energy sectors participate, including Pemo PUMPS. It’s a valuable opportunity to interact with buyers and decision makers, build business relationships and generate a portfolio of potential customers.
The previous edition dates back to 2019, and saw the presence of 1,000 exhibitors, 41,000 technical visitors and 30 countries from all continents.
According to an estimate by the organisers, Exponor 2019 has generated a turnover quantifiable in 885 million dollars.
What is exhibited?
The most recent and innovative technologies related to the energy and mining sectors are exhibited at Exponor.
Studies, researches and case histories are also presented. In fact, it is a precious opportunity to acquire and exchange know-how and knowledge.
Indeed, among the exhibitors we find:
- energy producing companies;
- suppliers of the energy sector;
- suppliers with energy efficiency solutions;

Types of events at Exponor
Beside the exhibition hall, Exponor offers many events ranging from sector conferences to meetings among technical delegations.
It is possible to participate in round tables and seminars, and in networking activities at the end of the day.
Particularly interesting is the possibility of making visits to construction sites, to learn about the main mining and energy activities in Chile, their projects and the operational challenges they face.
Peculiarities of the Exponor Chile exhibition
Exponor is an exhibition that takes place precisely in a geographical area where economy revolves precisely around the energy and mining sectors to which the fair is dedicated.
Indeed, the Antofagasta region is the world’s mining capital. It boasts 18 active mining projects which, together with the main suppliers in the sector, send technical delegations of workers to Exponor, which search for new technologies and innovative solutions, including those related to slurry pumps.
These working sites can be the destination for training visits, organised as fair events.

The congress combined with the exhibition, for example, will offer a particular insight into the economy of hydrogen, fossil free production, digitalization in the process industry, and bioproduction technologies. The lectures will be perfectly integrated into the fair: they will take place directly on the stages within the exhibition space.
Instead, in the Digital Lab Action Area it will be possible to experience an authentic smart laboratory.
A corollary to the fair is also the Career Forum, a networking event focused on applications, career paths and professional prospects offered by the process industry.
Peculiarities of the exhibition ACHEMA FRANKFURT
A peculiar feature of Achema Frankfurt is the particular attention to start-ups.
An entire exhibition area (in the “Research and innovation” sector) is dedicated to young companies and founders of new businesses, and above all, the ACHEMA Start-up Award.
The winner of the latter is selected from ten finalists who in Achema have the opportunity to demonstrate how science and technology, accompanied by ambition and perseverance, can generate new services, profitable products and process innovation.
