The pandemic continues to disrupt the international events calendar for mechanical process engineering and analytics in 2022. Following in-depth consultation with the honorary sponsors, the Exhibition Advisory Board and many registered exhibitors, NürnbergMesse as organizer has now decided to postpone POWTECH 2022, the international Leading Trade Fair for Powder & Bulk Solids Processing and Analytics, by four weeks. It will now be held at the Exhibition Centre Nuremberg from 27 to 29 September 2022, in parallel with FACHPACK, the European Trade Fair for Packaging, Technology and Processing.
“That means we can offer the bulk solids sector an exhibition date outside the summer holidays, which is particularly convenient for our customers from southern Germany and the Mediterranean region,"” says Heike Slotta, Executive Director Exhibitions, NürnbergMesse. “In recent days we have had in-depth discussions with the exhibitors at POWTECH and asked them about their preferred dates,” says Slotta. “It is extremely important for us to make this decision in conjunction with our customers – with the sector for the sector, you might say. The result of the survey was clear: The majority opted to hold it on 27-29 September 2022. By holding FACHPACK in September last year, we showed that we were able to run highly successful trade fairs even in the middle of a pandemic. That’s why we’re also really looking forward to holding a successful live event for the bulk solids sector.”
Two trade fairs, one location, multiple synergies
Holding POWTECH 2022 in parallel with FACHPACK will thus highlight the entire value chain from product manufacture through to packaging. Running POWTECH and FACHPACK in tandem will also create additional synergies in the areas of processing and packaging:
- Both events address users in the food and feed, chemical, pharmaceutical, plastics processing and mechanical engineering sectors.
- In terms of visitors, both fairs are strongly focused on the industrial and consumer goods sectors.
- Both fairs have a European emphasis. After Germany, the main countries of origin for the visitors are its close neighbours, especially Austria, Switzerland and Italy.
- Both fairs are established trade fairs for experts. Discussions take place on an equal footing, and deal with specific solutions.
- Both fairs cover a compact timeframe with a three-day schedule from Tuesday to Thursday.
Save the dates
In 2023, POWTECH will continue its schedule at the Exhibition Centre Nuremberg from 26 to 28 September. FACHPACK traditionally takes a break once every three years and therefore will not be held in 2023. It will resume its normal schedule on 24-26 September 2024.
POWTECH, the international Leading Trade Fair for Powder & Bulk Solids Processing and Analysis, is held at the Exhibition Centre Nuremberg. It covers the entire range of mechanical processes at the highest technological level. Nowhere else will process engineers find such a comprehensive overview of new developments on mixing, pulverizing, sifting, dosing, weighing and analysing powders, granulates and bulk solids – for almost every industry, including the chemical, pharmaceutical, food, plastics, stone/earth, ceramics and recycling sectors. www.powtech.de

FACHPACK is the European trade fair for packaging, technology, and processes, where exhibitors showcase their products for the packaging process chain for industrial and consumer goods. On display will be packaging materials, packaging and accessories, bottling and packaging machinery, labelling, marking and identification technology, machines and equipment for the packaging periphery, packaging printing and finishing systems, palletising technology, intra-logistics and services. With its new slogan: “We create the future”, FACHPACK 2022 will be devoted to the trending topic of “Transition in Packaging”. As the No. 1 gathering for the European packaging market, FACHPACK attracts trade visitors from all packaging-intensive sectors like food/beverages/luxury food, pharmaceuticals/cosmetics/chemicals/health care, non-food/pet food/other consumer goods as well as automotive/technical articles/medical technology and other industrial goods.
