The popular show is all set to launch its ‘Networking Campus’ in 2019. The new platform will enable budding professionals to communicate their innovative ideas and technologies for the benefit of the future powder and bulk solids industry.
Nuremberg/Germany – Powtech 2019 will see the premiere of the Networking Campus, the new Powtech think tank for technologies and markets of the future. The Networking Campus is a communication hub and discussion platform for young researchers, start-ups and developers.
The heart of the campus is an open presentation stage, where participants can get involved in an interactive programme based on the Bar Camp format. Here, all the participants will offer insights into the future of modern bulk solids and particle technology via brief presentations, workshops and discussions.
“From 2019, ‘Generation Future’ will gather at the Networking Campus. Innovative solutions for the process industries are part of Powtech’s DNA. Through the Networking Campus we are now creating the missing link between process engineering and the disruptive technologies of the future that are currently turning industry and daily life upside down!” says Beate Fischer, Director Powtech.
Be Part of the Conversation, Do Some Brainstorming and Think of the Future!
Exhibitors, networking campus participants and trade visitors can all contribute to the moderated presentation stage. The programme is created on a daily basis. Anyone can submit a presentation, workshop or TED-style talk up until check-in and start of the Bar Camp, i.e. the presentation series. It’s all about interaction and dialogue. Thematically, the Networking Campus will focus on ‘Future Markets’ as well as ‘Future Technologies’ and there will be Bar Camps on the following six topics:
• Energy storage and energy converters
• Closed-loop economy
• Additive Manufacturing
• Digitalisation / Digital Transformation in the bulk solids segment
• Human and cobot
• Virtual, Augmented, Mixed Reality: Opportunities and limitations in bulk solids operations
Technology and Expertise in Six Exhibition Halls
At Powtech, two other forums provide sustenance for knowledge-hungry powder and bulk solids experts. In Hall 2, the Expert Forum provides the platform for a specialist programme focusing on food and chemicals. In Hall 3, pharmaceutical experts gather at the Pharma.Manufacturing.Excellence Forum, where they can look forward to a high calibre international programme of presentations by the International Association for Pharmaceutical Technology (APV).
The international Partec Congress for Particle Technology will run parallel to Powtech 2019. More than 500 delegates are expected at the event, which is sponsored by the VDI Association of Process and Chemical Engineering (VDI-GVC). For Powtech itself, more than 23,000 square metres of display area have already been booked at this point in time. In six halls, visitors will experience the latest in process engineering and see hundreds of systems in live operation. The leading international fair for the processing, analysis and handling of powder and bulk solids will run from April 9–11, 2019 in Nuremberg. It is the meeting place for experts in the powder and bulk solids processing industries, from food, pharmaceuticals and chemicals to the pit and quarry segment, ceramics, glass and recycling.
