The 6th International Powder/Bulk Conference & Exhibition (IPB) takes place in the Everbright Convention & Exhibition Center in Shanghai from 9-11 December. The 2008 exhibition and conference on powder and bulk solids technology in the Asian region will be organized for the first time by NürnbergMesse China Co., Ltd., the Chinese subsidiary of NürnbergMesse GmbH, together with the Chinese industry association. "The event offers NürnbergMesse the chance to distinctly strengthen the competitive position of a core theme in China. We also expect a clear improvement in the internationality of POWTECH, the worldwide biggest exhibition for powder and bulk solids technologies organized in Nürnberg, " says Claus Rättich, Member of the Management Board of NürnbergMesse.

In terms of its exhibition theme, exhibitor and visitor target groups and accompanying conference, IPB is the Asian variant of the Europe-orientated POWTECH in Nürnberg. With the Chinese Society of Particuology (CSP), NürnbergMesse China has the most important and most widely recognized association in the country as partner for the IPB.

"International companies use the IPB mainly to prepare or push their market entry in China, " explains Axel Bartkus, Managing Director of NürnbergMesse China. "Our aim is to improve and develop the event concept, with the support of the previous IPB organizer Worldwide Exhibition Services (WES) as additional strategic Chinese partner. An agreement has been reached with the CSP concerning cooperation on conferences accompanying exhibitions in addition to the IPB, " continues Bartkus.

Growth market China
China is a large growth market for suppliers of powder, granule and bulk solids technologies. Whether for toothpaste or car paint, fertilizer or eye-shadow, washing powder or toner for copiers, powders form the basis of innumerable products for our daily needs. The manufacture and processing of powder, granules or bulk solids in such varied forms requires the use of high-tech machinery and plant, which are combined under the term "mechanical processing technology".

The IBP organizers already had good figures to show in 2007, when 193 exhibitors and over 4,000 trade visitors met in Shanghai. These included buyers and manufacturers from Germany, Japan, Korea, Thailand, the USA, Singapore, Holland and many other countries.
