Exhibitors, visitors and delegates alike confirmed the importance of the topics addressed by BulkSolids India and agreed on the significant potential of the event. The three-day conference and exhibition BulkSolids India 2011 has reaffirmed its reputation as a top level event that is especially characterised by the high quality of the delegates and visitors. On an enlarged exhibition area, the organisers – Vogel Business Media and NürnbergMesse – offered an extensive information and dialogue platform for experts from industry and science.

In addition to the application areas already covered by the exhibition in the previous year, such as bulk materials handling and processing in mines, ports, cement and power plants, the 2011 exhibition has been extended by the segment of chemical and food processing. Compared to 2010, the number of exhibitors had almost doubled and new companies like FLSmidth, Jenike & Johanson, K-Tron and Allgaier raised the profile and enriched number of products and services on offer.

A total of 62 key companies presented their products, services and expertise on two levels of the Neru Centre in Mumbai. Unfortunately the total number of visitors did not quite meet the expectations of the exhibitors, even though the quality of the contacts was very good, as Amit Popatwala, Director Sales and Marketing of WAM India, confirmed “The number of genuine visitors was good. The ratio of visitors to enquiries is very good at this show. However, the total number of visitors needs to be much higher in the future.”

High-Calibre Exchange

The highly specialized BulkSolids India conference under the Chair of Vijay K, Agarwal, Indian Institute of Technology, Delhi, had been expanded and provided in depth information on all major bulk material handling topics, including belt conveying, pneumatic conveying, fly ash handling, dry bulk ports, environmental protection, energy efficiency and more. More over, in accordance to the exhibition, the conference had also been extended by chemical processing, solids handling in food processing and production of pharmaceuticals.
