The International Powder & Bulk Solids Conference/Exhibition (Powder Show) returns to the Donald E. Stephens Convention Center in Rosemont, IL, May 8-10, for what will be the 37th anniversary of the first Powder Show.

The Powder Show features the world's leading exhibitors with the most comprehensive solutions for all processing professionals. Whether you are a processing engineer, production engineer, plant manager, or operations manager, you'll find what you need to process, handle, package, transport, test, and store dry particulates and bulk solids across many industries.

Whether your company manufactures plastics, chemicals, food, pharmaceuticals, building products, or paper goods, and if you need to transport, analyze, weigh, bath, mix, grind, dry, or shape raw materials, and then package them for market, this is the premier event for providing access to the full range of equipment, technology, information, and expertise needed for every phase of this complex process.

Combining the world’s most comprehensive showcase of solutions for dry processing and bulk solids handling with the world’s foremost conference on powder technology, the Powder Show will help you improve product quality, eliminate costly mistakes, reduces waste and rejects, minimize downtime, and maximize productivity and profits.
