POWTECH 2020 Special Edition cancelled


NürnbergMesse has decided not to hold the POWTECH 2020 Special Edition that was planned for September this year. With this decision the trade fair organisers are addressing the reservations of many exhibitors and industry players about having an on-site event. Recently, exhibitors have been particularly hesitant in view of the partly unforeseeable effects of the coronavirus pandemic on the ability to travel and the economic situation of the various sectors involved. The next POWTECH will therefore take place in Nuremberg on the usual scale from 26 to 28 April 2022. The leading trade fair for the processing, analysis and handling of powder and bulk solids will be held in combination with the PARTEC Congress.

Initially, exhibitors, partners and associations showed a lot of interest in the POWTECH 2020 Special Edition, a solution adapted to the current circumstances that would have allowed an industry gathering to nevertheless take place this year. The Bavarian government’s safety and hygiene concept for trade fairs taking place from 1 September 2020 also provided a degree of planning certainty. The concept for the POWTECH 2020 Special Edition was developed on this basis within just a few weeks and in close consultation with our institutional sponsors APV and VDI. 

 

Energy and ideas for 2022

“In recent weeks, many POWTECH exhibitors, partners and visitors have felt as we did: Although our hearts were saying yes, the current situation meant that our heads had to once again say no. In particular, the economic situation of many companies in the wake of the worldwide coronavirus crisis but also uncertainty about how the pandemic is going to evolve continue to be stumbling blocks to what is a much longed-for trade fair attendance,” says Beate Fischer, Director POWTECH at NürnbergMesse. “I would like to explicitly thank partners, industry associations and exhibitors for their constructive and creative engagement over the last few months. Special thanks also go to the POWTECH team that came up with a workable concept in such a short time. We are now going to embody this energy and the many new ideas proposed into our preparations for POWTECH 2022.”

 

Additional online option for professional dialogue

The next POWTECH will be held at Exhibition Centre Nuremberg from 26 to 28 April 2022 in combination with the PARTEC Congress for particle technology, which is following its regular three-year conference cycle. The next round of the POWTECH Virtual Talks, a webinar series on powder and bulk solids technologies in collaboration with the APV, will take place as soon as 3 September 2020.
