IPB 2017 New venueand excellent prospects for China’s number one powder and bulk solids exhibition

Since the AgroChemEx exhibition will take place at the venue at same time as IPB, the organisers also expect many additional trade visitors to attend from the field of agricultural chemicals.

Programme: Pharmaceutical, particle technology and much more

The co-organiser, the Chinese Society of Particuology, makes sure that IPB and accompanying conferences have a high technical level. An extensive programme is planned, including the Shanghai Pharmaceutical Powder & Particle Processing Seminar on 16 October and the IND EX® Safety Symposium on 17 October. Issues from the fields of pharmaceutical production, protection and safety and particle technologies are on the agenda in the conference rooms. Other presentations and on-site events on the latest hot issues in the industry will be held with trusted partners, among them IND EX, Powder Industry Media and academic organisations. The programme will be geared especially towards the issues facing sectors located there.

Growing visitor numbers
IPB 2016 enjoyed another significant increase in visitor numbers. Last year, 7,988 trade visitors came to Shanghai and learned about the latest developments and solutions in the field of mechanical process technology at stands set up by 142 exhibitors. Most trade visitors were from the chemical (27 per cent), pharmaceutical (21 per cent) and engineering (15 per cent) sectors, with users in plastic manufacturing and food/feed production also well-represented.
