Brief Closing Report

The three-day exhibition duo POWTECH/TechnoPharm 2008 ended on Thursday, 2 October. The two exhibitions with complementary themes again made the Exhibition Centre Nuremberg the international get-together for process technicians, process engineers and production managers from a wide range of industries such as chemicals, pharmaceuticals, food, quarrying and earthworks, cosmetics and ceramics. The over 1,000 exhibitors presented the latest developments and trends to some 15,000 trade visitors from all over the world.

The mood in the exhibition halls at POWTECH and TechnoPharm was very good – the exhibitors at the combined exhibition especially emphasized the quality, expertise and willingness to invest shown by the visitors. Very encouraging from the exhibitors' viewpoint was the keen interest of visitors from abroad – they accounted for well over 25 % of the total number of visitors. The response from the visitors was also good and some 96 % of the visitors were extremely satisfied with the products on display at the high-tech exhibition duo.

"The two exhibitions have achieved a steady high level again in 2008, " sums up Walter Hufnagel, Member of the Management Board of NürnbergMesse. "Despite the slight drop in the number of visitors due to the date, Nürnberg is more than ever one of the capital goods exhibitions that are fully accepted."

The significant trends at POWTECH and TechnoPharm 2008 can be best described by the keywords quality optimization, efficient integration of process steps and traceability. All industries that use mechanical processes, like the pharma, cosmetic and health food industries, are confronted with the global challenge of improving efficiency. The over 1,000 exhibitors at these two exhibitions presented many innovative solutions for this purpose.

Note the date: The next POWTECH/TechnoPharm duo takes place in Nürnberg from 27-29 April 2010. The World Congress on Particle Technology (WCPT) starts the day before and runs from 26-29 April 2010.
