When POWTECH, the leading international trade fair for powder, granule and bulk solids technologies, returns on 27 to 29 September 2022, it will leverage the synergies arising from its co-location with FACHPACK, the exhibition for packaging, technology and processes. Both events attract users from the food and feed, chemical, pharmaceutical, plastics processing and mechanical engineering sectors. Over a three-day period, they will effectively showcase the entire supply chain, from processing and technology to packaging. The new date in September, which falls outside the holiday period, also provides the necessary flexibility and a reliable basis for planning. You can still register up to 30 June 2022.

Longstanding exhibitors need no persuading
One thing is certain: Trade fairs like POWTECH will continue to be a key tool for business success in the future. This view is also shared by longstanding POWTECH exhibitors who can hardly wait for the fair to take place in 2022. They include Rainer Zimmermann, CEO of AZO GmbH & Co. KG, one of the world’s most experienced companies in the automated handling of raw materials, who says: “Two years of pandemic and enforced breaks have shown us that there is no substitute for personal contact in the trade fair environment. We are therefore even more delighted that POWTECH, the leading fair for bulk solids and powder technology, can also take place again this year. Barely any other event offers AZO such a good opportunity to present our expertise in the automated handling of raw materials. And this year, the parallel FACHPACK show offers visitors yet another opportunity for personal exchanges about our AZO products and solutions.”
Gerold Rogge, Regional Sales Manager/Key Accounts of Coperion K-Tron GmbH, a globally operating supplier of process equipment, is full of praise for the leading trade fair for mechanical processing technology: “Without a lot of ‘bells and whistles’, visitors have direct access to the ‘who’s who’ of bulk solids technology. They can discuss upcoming projects directly with qualified stand personnel, which can often result in solutions being found there and then. And that’s exactly what makes these face-to-face discussions better than the virtual experience. Finally, we will also be able to offer a hands-on display of our latest developments to the professional community.”
From manufacture to packaging
For the first time in 2022, POWTECH will take place parallel to FACHPACK, creating new synergies and at the same time offering a perspective outside its traditional horizons. The co-location of the trade fairs will appeal to users from the food and feed, chemical, pharmaceutical, plastics processing and mechanical engineering segments, and will therefore provide a reliable mapping of the entire supply chain from the manufacture of the products to their packaging. Countless companies obviously recognise this potential, as POWTECH is expecting 700 exhibitors and FACHPACK over a thousand. Thanks to the trade fair pairing, POWTECH exhibitors can look forward to unprecedented opportunities in the participating visitor segments, as an analysis of visitor databases from previous events has shown.
In 2023, POWTECH will be going its own way again with the accompanying particle congress PARTEC on its scheduled dates of 26 to 28 September, as FACHPACK traditionally takes a break every three years and will also do so in 2023.
A platform for like-minded engineering professionals
However, trade fairs do not just serve to amplify the capability and innovative strength of the entire bulk solids industry. They also achieve a reach that should not be underestimated and connect market participants quickly with one another at a personal level. POWTECH is committed to providing a platform where experts can come together as peers. The trade fair offers solutions for specific problems and serves as an urgently needed platform for discussions among industry professionals about the bulk solids industry and its future.
