Industry solutions on show at SOLIDS Dortmund and RECYCLING-TECHNIK

On 10th & 11th May 2017, the trade shows Solids Dortmund and Recycling-Technik will again take place in Dortmund. In two show days, supply and demand from near and far will meet together under one roof. To date, Easyfairs has already received numerous exhibitor bookings and expects 15 % more than at the previous shows, a growth trend that is also reflected in a rapidly increasing attendance. With lectures, guided tours and an expert congress complementing the exhibition, visitors searching for new products and solutions will find a wide range of offerings here.

“The trade shows Solids Dortmund and Recycling-Technik have enjoyed rising importance in the minds of both exhibitors and visitors. This can be seen not only quantitatively in the fast-growing exhibitor and visitor numbers but also in terms of quality, as our surveys show,” emphasises Daniel Eisele, Group Event Director and exhibition manager for the show organiser, Easyfairs Deutschland GmbH. On the 10th and 11th of May 2017 two top trade shows will take place in Dortmund: the eighth edition of Solids Dortmund alongside the fourth edition of Recycling-Technik. Solids Dortmund has established itself as the leading trade show in Germany for granules, powders and solids technologies. The show explores all aspects of the equipment and process technologies required for the production, material acceptance, handling and processing of bulk solids, as well as the mechanical or pneumatic conveying thereof within the plant. And likewise when it comes to filling, packaging, storage and transportation of those goods to their final destinations.

Solids Dortmund has grown into the leading­ exhibition on the topic

“With 450 registrations at the beginning of this year, we have already the same number of exhibitors as last time, long before the show will take place,” says Eisele. “This is where the entire bulk goods community comes together.” And Stefan Meyer, Managing Director of REMA TIP TOP West GmbH, adds: “This trade show is simply a must for suppliers of solids technologies – it has become the leading event for the solids industry.” The exhibition covers the entire process engineering value chain and showcases technologies for the processing, handling, storage and transport of bulk granules, powders and solid goods. The exhibitors look forward to meeting trade visitors from a broad mix of industries, especially in the fields of mechanical and plant engineering, chemicals and pharmaceuticals, and minerals, soils and mining, as well as areas like the food and feed industry or logistics. The international country pavilions, for example the Benelux or Italian pavilions, are particularly popular among the attendees.

Additionally, the parallel event Recycling-Technik is a business and innovation platform for recycling, environmental technology and urban mining. Exhibitors representing all major areas of recyclable and residual waste technologies will present machinery and plant components for reclamation and environmentally-sound disposal. With 240 providers, there will be 15 % more exhibitors showing their products and solutions than at the last edition. And, for the first time, industry leaders such as RETO recycling technology, Haas Recycling or HAAKE will also be there. Furthermore, at its community stand the WFZruhr will give startups from the region the opportunity to present themselves.

Show programme in the Innovation Center

The growing diversity is also supported by the show programme, with its two daily guided tours of the exhibition, 100 lectures on five open stages and the third German Fire and Explosion Protection Congress in cooperation with IND EX® e.V.
