More than 7,100 trade visitors attended the International Powder & Bulk Solids Processing Conference & Exhibition (IPB) in Shanghai in late October, according to event organiser Powtech.
The attendance figure was up from 6,890 in 2014. This made IPB the largest gathering for powder and bulk solids experts ever assemble in China, according to Powtech.
“In addition, the number of international visitors was up by 20% on the previous year, while 164 exhibitors showcased process technologies for the entire production chain, including solutions for mixing, conveying, pulverising, screening and granulating,” Powtech said.
The exhibition was accompanied by a conference, which included talks on particle measurement and characterisation, explosion prevention, environmental coating and nano-technology application.
