As of 2018, “Schüttgut”, Germany’s pre-eminent trade show for granules, powders and bulk solids technologies will also be known domestically as Solids Dortmund. With this name change, organiser Easyfairs acknowledges the show’s growth as well as its increased international significance. More than 500 exhibitors and some 7000 visitors are expected on 07.11.-08.11.2018, when the spotlight is focused on the latest technology for the production and handling of bulk materials. This year the ninth edition of the trade show will take place at the Messe Dortmund. Over the years since its premiere in 2006, the share of international exhibitors has risen to nearly 20 %, and amongst visitors to about 12 %.
The new name, Solids Dortmund, also underscores the show’s affiliation with Europe’s largest series of trade shows for granules, powders and bulk solids technologies. Together with its sister events Solids Antwerp, Solids Rotterdam, Solids Zurich, Solids Krakow and Solids Russia, Dortmund has long been a pillar of the Solids European Series (SES).
Along with Solids, the fifth edition of Recycling-Technik Dortmund will also open its doors in Dortmund’s exhibition halls this November. The two shows will be accompanied by the 4th German Fire and Explosion Protection Congress and the 8th Urban Mining Congress, which will both be held in parallel.
