Powtech 2020 Special Edition cancelled
06.08.2020 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. read more

POWTECH 2020 Special Edition: The digital transformation in powder and bulk solids processes
15.07.2020 Contactless, social distancing, protective equipment: the keywords of the (post-) coronavirus age. That also relates to all the levels of contact between plant and component manufacturers, plant operators and service providers in the powder and bulk solids industries. Grandparents and grandchildren led the way with video chats, the Internet serving as the key to information-sharing and maintaining contact. The crisis is thus also helping to drive forward the much vaunted Internet of Things. Coronavirus made it clear: it is time for the digital transformation to take the final step toward becoming a reality. How that can happen is the theme of POWTECH, taking place as a Special Edition in Nuremberg from 30 September to 1 October this year. read more

Orgatec suspended in 2020
09.07.2020 Although outstanding registration levels for the autumn events had already been achieved by spring 2020, and in spite of extensive preparations for the trade fair and the #B-SAFE4business package of measures for coronavirus-compliant implementation of our trade fairs, the situation of this trade fair increasingly began to reflect current developments around Covid-19 and the economic situation. In recent weeks, a large majority of exhibitors and trade visitors decided not to attend Orgatec after all. In light of this, Koelnmesse reassessed the overall situation and decided that it was best to respond to the cancellations and wishes of a large number of industry exhibitors and trade visitors by not implementing Orgatec 2020. read more
