POWTECH and PARTEC 2019
This year too, POWTECH impressed once again as a leading international fair for the powder and bulk solids industries. 14 200 visitors (40 % from outside Germany) enjoyed a first-class trade fair programme and made useful contacts. In six halls at Exhibition Centre Nuremberg/DE, 824 exhibitors from 35 countries showcased their innovations. Alongside Germany, the top exhibiting countries were Austria, Italy, Switzerland and the Netherlands.
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 m2. 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. 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. We are especially pleased that even well-known companies discovered the Networking Campus for themselves and actively supported it by providing their expertise,” said Beate Fischer, Director of POWTECH. The PARTEC Congress for Particle Technology (250 lectures and the exhibition of 180 research posters) was also a resounding success, and welcomed more than 500 delegates from 30 countries.
Next POWTECH will take place at Exhibition Centre Nuremberg from 29 September till 1 October 2020.
