SOLIDS 2015 sets new exhibitor record

Solids Dortmund 2015

Solids Dortmund 2015

Even before its opening, the trade show’s 7th edition indicates outstanding growth.

Munich, 7 July 2015: Four months before the expert trade show for granules, powders and solids technologies is scheduled to open, 425 companies have already booked – nearly 10% more than last year. Halls 4, 5 and 6 in Dortmund are already sold out; show organiser Easyfairs is expanding the show into Hall 7.

SOLIDS will take place on 4 & 5 November 2015 in the Messe Westfalenhallen Dortmund. The 7th edition will again be complemented by RECYCLING-TECHNIK Dortmund 2015, the recycling and environment technologies show, as well as the Urban Mining conference. For the first time in the show’s history it will cover four exhibition halls. The newly-opened Hall 7 will be devoted thematically to suppliers of recycling and solids technology: crushing machinery, packaging and storage systems, sorting and conveying machinery, shredders and crushing equipment, and separation and processing technologies for recyclable materials.

“This strong resonance among the exhibitors really confirms the concept behind SOLIDS as a straightforward, two-day show focused on innovations and doing business; more than ever, this show fulfils a real need on both sides of the supply-demand equation,” says Daniel Eisele, Event Director for Easyfairs. “For many companies, this format works exceptionally well for presenting products, discussing technical solutions with trade visitors and making new or solidifying existing business contacts.”

In total, the show organiser expects over 450 exhibitors at the event in November, covering the entire spectrum of process engineering in solids and recycling technologies. 75% of the exhibitors from 2014 have already re-booked for the upcoming show. In addition, a number of new enterprises have joined their ranks, including: Ambros Schmelzer, B&F Metallbautechnik, Dustcontrol, Erhard Muhr, Eriez Europe, F&D Wägetechnik-Waagenbau, HSM, Intensiv-Filter, Kloska Group, Köllemann, Komptech, Mahle Industriefiltration, Orbinox, Otto Ganter, Schreier Maschinen+Apparatebau, ReSiTec, RMS, Rosenbauer International, Sigma Maschinenbau, steute Schaltgeräte, Tedima, Stokkermill, Sympatec, Vautid, Wrights Recycling Machinery and many more.

In addition to the exhibition, a rich show programme will offer more than 100 lectures taking place in open forums, the so-called “InnovationCenters” and “SolutionCenters”. In-depth seminars will also be held within the framework of two expert conferences running in parallel with the exhibition: the 2nd German Fire and Explosion Protection Congress and the 6th Urban Mining Congress.

Cooperation partners of this year’s show are Martin Engineering GmbH, Rema Tip Top West GmbH, Rembe GmbH Safety & Control, SEW-Eurodrive GmbH and Welding Alloys Deutschland GmbH.



Within the last 9 years, SOLIDS Dortmund has established itself as a fixture in the diaries of industry professionals. It has become the most important business and innovation platform for solids technologies in Germany. The range of the exhibition spans the entire value chain of process engineering for bulk solids and powder technologies. On display are machinery and techniques for incoming goods as well as the handling (sieving, filtering, agglomerating, dosing, weighing) and processing (crushing, cooling, heating, milling, mixing, disaggregating) of solid goods, through to in-house mechanical or pneumatic conveyance and procedures for filling, packing, storage, transport and shipment. Solids technologies are important to such diverse industries as food and drinks, chemicals, pharmaceuticals, cosmetics, plastics, metals, logistics, agriculture, construction and mining. Topical specialists and procurement professionals will find machinery, components and complete solution systems. The show is held every 18 months. In 2014, 393 exhibitors and approximately 5,000 visitors participated in the show.
