The International Powder and Bulk Solids Conference & Exhibition (Powder Show), the largest biennial event in the Western Hemisphere for the dry processing and bulk solids handling industry, saw more than 4,000 attendees – a doubling the last event in 2021. 

Held at the Donald E. Stevens Convention Center in Rosemont, IL, the show floor hosted more than 320 commercial companies -- an 11% increase from the last event. 

The opening day keynote, “Effective Specification of a Bulk Handling System,” saw a capacity crowd that heard real-life examples from key players within the industry. The two-day conference hosted more than 300 delegates and a 97% verification rate in attendance -- a 45% increase from the 2021 show. 

“Seeing our event have an explosive increase in both expo and conference attendance shows the eagerness to connect and learn within the trade,” said Steve Everly, group event director, Informa Markets. “The dry processing and bulk solids handling sector accounts for 70% of the manufacturing lifecycle of every product on earth, making education and connection an essential part of the industry. This event stands as a networking hub year after year for trade professionals, and we are proud to provide this opportunity and showcase that manufacturing continues to grow and impact all verticals within consumers’ daily lives.” 
Educational topics in this year’s sessions included combustible dust safety, dust collection, conveying, feeding, workforce development, and more. The sessions were interactive and engaging, and featured live demonstrations from the show floor, such as explosion control within the combustible dust safety track and a live trivia session providing interesting facts about material characteristics, behaviors, and more.  
The Powder Show will return to Rosemont April 29-May 1, 2025. For more information, visit www.powderandbulkshow.com.
