SCHÜTTGUT now called SOLIDS Dortmund

S‌CHÜTTGUT renamed: as of 2018, Germany‘s pre-eminent trade show for granules, powders and bulk solids technologies will also be known domestically as SOLIDS Dortmund. More than 500 exhibitors and some 7000 visitors are expected on 7 & 8 November, when the spotlight is focused on the latest technology for the production and handling of bulk materials.  “With the new name SOLIDS Dortmund, we‘re recognising the consistent growth and ever-increasing internationalisation that has taken place over the course of the last eight editions of Schüttgut,“ emphasises Daniel Eisele, Group Event Director for organiser Easyfairs. On 7 & 8 November 2018, the ninth trade show for granules, powders and bulk solids technologies – and the first to run officially under the title SOLIDS – will take place at the Messe Dortmund. Over the years since its premiere in 2006, the share of international exhibitors has risen to nearly 20 %, and amongst visitors to about 12 %.

One of the shows in Europe‘s largest show series

The new name, SOLIDS Dortmund, also underscores the show‘s affiliation with Europe‘s largest series of trade shows for granules, powders and bulk solids technologies. Together with its sister events SOLIDS Antwerp, SOLIDS Rotterdam, SOLIDS Zurich, SOLIDS Krakow and SOLIDS Russia, Dortmund has long been a pillar of the Solids European Series (SES).

The new name will be accompanied by a new logo for SOLIDS Dortmund. It consists of three nested hexagons, representing the three types of bulk solids, i.e. stone, granules and powders. Its six corners stand for the six SES shows. The broad approval with which the new name and logo have been received is summarised by Professor Rainer Barnekow from the Life Science Technologies Department of the Hochschule Ostwestfalen-Lippe:  “I‘m delighted with the new name SOLIDS. Solids includes not only coarse bulk goods but also powders and finer-grained materials, and this is exactly what you‘ll find at the trade show. Since the show has become more international, an English name is the ideal choice.“

A concept encompassing exhibitions, forums and conventions

Along with SOLIDS, the fifth edition of RECYCLING-TECHNIK Dortmund will also open its doors in Dortmund‘s exhibition halls this November. The two shows will be accompanied by the 4th German Fire and Explosion Protection Congress and the 8th URBAN MINING® Congress, which will both be held in parallel.
