From pharmaceuticals, chemicals and foodstuffs to glass, construction materials and paper: every 18 months the POWTECH trade fair offers these key industrial segments a unique overview of the latest developments in mechanical processing technology. From 19 to 21 April 2016, international industry experts will once again have the opportunity to share know-how with their peers and forge new business contacts. PARTEC, the International Congress for Particle Technology held concurrently with the show, attracts scientists and engineers from all over the world to the Nuremberg Exhibition Centre.
Around seven months before it takes place, POWTECH, the leading trade fair for processing, analysis and handling of powder and bulk solids, is already enjoying an extremely positive response. “We have been delighted to receive a large number of early bird registrations, including many longstanding exhibitors and key industry players. More than 80 percent of the floor space used last year has already been booked,” reports Beate Fischer, the NürnbergMesse project manager responsible for the event. “The high number of bookings illustrates once again how extremely important POWTECH is as an industry gathering for the international powder and bulk goods sector.”
Changeover at the helm
POWTECH starts the 2016 trade fair season under new management, as Willy Viethen, who was responsible for POWTECH over the last three years in his capacity as events manager at NürnbergMesse, is succeeded by Beate Fischer. Before joining NürnbergMesse in October 2013, Beate Fischer had been active in the trade fair industry for 15 years. Her previous employers have included GHM in Munich, an organiser of fairs for skilled tradespersons, and Salzburg Exhibition Centre. “As a member of the POWTECH 2014 event team I already gained good insights into the sector. I particularly appreciate the mutually constructive collaboration with our exhibitors and partners and look forward to working with them to further consolidate POWTECH’s position as the leading fair for mechanical processing technology.”
Modified hall layout
The new hall layout provides the ideal conditions for an effective trade fair visit. The pharmaceutical sector is incorporated into POWTECH through the integration of the TechnoPharm show, so that exhibitors with pharmaceutical-related offerings will be found in all of the six available halls. This exhibition segment is arranged in a circle along the “South Row” of the Nuremberg venue and therefore offers an ideal circuit for a tour of the fair. Access to the event is via NCC Ost – where PARTEC is taking place in the congress rooms - and the Mitte entrance directly opposite the Underground station.

Expert forums in the exhibition halls
The three expert forums in halls 2, 3 and 3A offer industry-specific, practical knowhow. POWTECH sponsor APV (International Association for Pharmaceutical Technology) is organising the special display area Pharma.Manufacturing.Excellence. This expert forum in Hall 3A will be flanked by exhibitors showcasing the latest developments in printing and innovative 2D and 3D technologies as part of the focus on “Printing Solutions in Pharma”. In Hall 3, the POWTECH Technology Forum will present application-driven solutions for the food, chemical and pharmaceutical sectors and will also offer participating universities, including those specialising in applied sciences, a
platform for presentations on science and research.
The Expert Forum in Hall 2 will provide information about current trends in explosion protection and other industry-specific challenges in mechanical processing technology.
