Powtech/TechnoPharm 2010 and WCPT6

This year's organization of the three highly international events – Powtech, TechnoPharm and the World Congress on Particle Technology (WCPT6) – in parallel made the Exhibition Centre Nuremberg Europe's top meeting-place for process technicians, process engineers, production managers and scientists for four days. The almost 1,000 exhibitors presented their products and innovations to the over 16,490 visitors (2008: 15,117) from key industries like chemicals, pharmaceuticals and food. At WCPT6, some 800 participants from more than 30 countries discussed the latest findings from all areas of particle technology daily during the exhibition.

680 exhibitors from 27 countries at POWTECH and 276 exhibitors from 13 countries at TechnoPharm once again made the Exhibition Centre Nuremberg the meeting-place for manufacturers of process technologies, plant and apparatus at the end of April 2010. The number of exhibitors was therefore slightly less than at the previous event eighteen months ago (Powtech / TechnoPharm 2008: 1,009). "But especially at times like the present, which are very hard for the machinery and plant engineering sector, we are proud that the exhibitors are defying the crisis and almost as many as usual have come to Nürnberg, " says Claudia Hauser-Vollrath, Exhibition Manager of Powtech / TechnoPharm at NürnbergMesse.

The leading exhibiting nations after Germany were Switzerland, Italy and Great Britain at Powtech, and Switzerland, Italy and Austria at TechnoPharm.

Particularly the increased number of visitors at the exhibition duo in 2010 was very encouraging. Not only the number of visitors grew – to 16,490 (2008: 15,117, including 30 % international) – but also the percentage share – 32 per cent – of international visitors and the number of countries from which the process technicians, process engineers, production managers and scientists came to Nürnberg. Visitors from 74 countries (2008: 70 countries) streamed into the halls and onto the exhibitors' stands to gather information on new products and innovations during the three days of the exhibition. Besides Germany, the list of visiting countries was headed by Austria, Switzerland, Italy, the Czech Republic and the Netherlands. Visitors also travelled to Nürnberg from Japan, Israel, Saudi Arabia, Singapore, Australia and Nigeria. In general, not only the number of visitors was a very positive aspect, but above all their high professional qualifications.
