Positive result for POWTECH and TechnoPharm 2014

POWTECH and TechnoPharm 2014 can be summed up positively after three days of productive exhibition activity and knowledge transfer. With altogether 929 exhibitors from 30 countries and some 15 000 trade visitors (Fig. 1), it is the world’s largest and most important event for new trends in processing and handling powder and bulk solids and for innovative technologies for the manufacture of solid, semi-solid and liquid drugs.

“We have a successful autumn event to show,” sums up Willy Viethen, Director Exhibitions POWTECH and TechnoPharm at NürnbergMesse. “This year’s exhibition combination has sent a positive signal to the relevant industries. The exhibitors report very good talks held in the past three days. This is all the more encouraging, as the German machinery construction sector is registering heavy drops in the number of orders. Here the trade fair duo is clearly showing the growing optimism within the industries.”

Although the event is weaker in the autumn than in the spring, the mood in the exhibition halls was exceptionally good. Thoroughly encouraging from the exhibitors’ viewpoint was the keen interest shown by the visitors from abroad – they accounted for over a third of the total number of visitors. The response from the visitors is also positive. Nine out of ten visitors in the surveys said they were extremely satisfied with the products offered at the high-tech exhibition duo. The thousands of machines and products in the six exhibition halls represented the latest state of the art (Fig. 2). Nowhere else can process engineers find such a comprehensive but compact overview of new products for mixing, size reduction, screening, dosing, weighing and analysing solids and semi-solid materials – for virtually all industries, e.g. chemicals, pharmaceuticals, food and mineral processing.

The next event will take place in the Exhibition Centre Nuremberg from 19-21 April 2016 – together with PARTEC, the International Congress on Particle Technology (Fig. 3).
