POWTECH and PARTEC 2019: powerful process engineering duo in Nuremberg

Edited by mhd on 23. Sep. 2022
Nürnberg, GermanyNew formats and unrivalled technical breadth proved to be the recipe for success. This year too, POWTECH impressed once again as a leading international fair for the powder and bulk solids industries. Over three days, some 14,200[1] visitors enjoyed a first-class trade fair programme and made useful contacts. In six halls at Exhibition Centre Nuremberg, 824 exhibitors from 35 countries showcased their innovations.

Numerous presentations in forums focusing on chemicals, food and pharmaceuticals delivered the latest scientific findings. The PARTEC Congress for Particle Technology was also a resounding success and welcomed more than 500 delegates from 30 countries. The new Networking Campus concept, with its interactive programme for entrepreneurs and scientists, proved especially popular and was regarded as a genuine highlight of POWTECH.

Following three exciting days featuring machines live in action, expert knowledge-sharing of the highest calibre and inspiring presentations, POWTECH 2019 closed its doors again. “Our goal was to impress with a high-quality exhibition, new approaches and a diverse, technically sophisticated programme of presentations offering learning opportunities. And that’s exactly what we managed to do, according to a lot of feedback that we received,” concludes Beate Fischer, Director of POWTECH. Some 14,200 trade visitors, 40 percent from outside Germany, took part in the exhibition. This underscores the fact that at international level, POWTECH is the undisputed No. 1 industry gathering for the powder and bulk solids community. Alongside Germany, the top exhibiting countries were Austria, Italy, Switzerland and the Netherlands.

Satisfied exhibitors and trade visitors

Even more impressive than the sheer numbers this year, however, was the extremely positive mood in the halls and forums. The exhibiting companies covered a total display area of around 26,700 square metres. As an established leading international fair, POWTECH offered industry representatives a unique opportunity for networking and knowledge-sharing between experts at this 21st round of the event in Nuremberg. Initial polls conducted during the fair have indicated that 87% of exhibitors are expecting follow-on business due to the contacts and initial leads made at POWTECH 2019. 

Networking Campus a successful format

The think tank format of the Networking Campus was very well received by both visitors and active participants. The 30 presentations and two panel discussions encouraged people to join in the discussion about the trending issues of the future. As well as scientific institutes, associations and start-ups, major players from the various sectors were also able to present their developments and ideas. The open, moderated presentation stage facilitated a participant-driven discussion and was especially popular with visitors to the campus. “We will certainly be incorporating the Networking Campus into future events again. It has simply proven itself to be a suitable format and adds enormous value to POWTECH,” says Beate Fischer. “We are especially pleased that even well-known companies discovered the Networking Campus for themselves and actively supported it by providing their expertise,” Fischer continues.
