Attending POWTECH means learning from other experts and industries

POWTECH is to be held at Exhibition Centre Nuremberg from 26 to 28 September 2017. In addition to the around 850 exhibitors from all over the world, the new products show, the meeting place for networking and the knowledge-sharing platform also make the supporting programme for the trade fair very attractive for visitors. Attending POWTECH means learning from other experts and industries, providing your input and going home with a wealth of new knowledge. The first port of call for knowledge-seekers is the POWTECH Expert Forum in Hall 2. The non-stop programme of presentations and discussions explores issues like digital transformation for the handling and processing of bulk solids (Tuesday 26 September) and dust removal (Thursday 28 September).

At the Expert Forum in Hall 2 and the Pharma.Manufacturing.Excellence Forum in Hall 3A, international experts and end-users will report on their best practices. In Hall 3, the special “Future Generation” zone provides a perspective on the powder, bulk solid and particle technologies of the future. It's where universities and research establishments present their research results. Visitors will have the opportunity for conversations, for example with representatives of numerous university groups, developers from the Fraunhofer Institute for Ceramic Technologies and Systems, the Weimar Institute for Applied Construction Research or the renowned Wolfson Centre for Bulk Solids Handling Technology of the University of Greenwich. At the jobs forum, skilled personnel can find out about current vacancies in the bulk solids sector. The ProcessNet Café organised by DECHEMA (society for chemical and bio technology, Gesellschaft für Chemische Technik und Biotechnologie e.V.) and the VDI-GVC is also located in the “Future Generation” zone and provides a relaxed atmosphere where visitors can share news and views with experts and colleagues.

Good opportunity for international networking

More than a third of exhibitors and visitors at POWTECH come from outside Germany. The International Day on Wednesday 27 September offers the ideal opportunity for networking across borders. In the morning, a meeting of international bulk solids associations from the UK, Japan, Spain and the Netherlands will be held in the NCC Ost Congress Center. The afternoon will see a presentation about the various international subsidiary trade fairs that make up POWTECH World. For the entire duration of the fair, the POWTECH World Café in Hall 3A will be a gathering point for all bulk solids globetrotters and others with an interest in the industry.
