Whether chemical, pharmaceutical, food, stone or metal industry: bulk solids have many facets. At the 1-day trade fairs in Karlsruhe and Chemnitz, you will receive solutions for the processing, handling, storage, transport and analysis of fine- to coarse-grained materials.

The two trade fairs combine the best features of the national SOLIDS Dortmund event and bring the essence of bulk solids technology right to the doorstep of local users. With Karlsruhe and Chemnitz, the new RegioDay concept starts in two of Germany’s strongest economic metropolises: Rhine-Neckar and Central Germany.

As a provider of bulk solids technologies and solutions, you present your company compactly on one day and precisely where your local customers and partners are at home. Spontaneously and without travel expenses, trade visitors can find solutions for their projects and exchange ideas with you in a personal atmosphere.

The focus of the RegioDays: to provide bulk solids experts with a physical industry meeting – in a small and very personal setting, directly in the visitor target markets. Suppliers and users enter into dialogue there, where networking and social contact can once again take up just as much space as business.

The Karlsruhe Technology Region is optimally located in the connecting line of the Rhine-Neckar and Stuttgart metropolitan regions on the south-western axis of the Rhine, the blue line of the process industry. Karlsruhe itself is characterised as a business location by world market leaders such as L’Oréal and UHU, as well as by innovative SMEs from the construction, chemical, food, pharmaceutical and chemical and plant engineering sectors.

Chemnitz has been a centre of mechanical engineering and a key sector of many manufacturing industries for 150 years. For example, the first German synthetic detergent “FeWa” originated from a soap factory in the Saxon industrial city. The diversity of companies is still constantly growing today and is characterised by small and medium-sized enterprises. Chemnitz is part of the metropolitan region of Central Germany, which encompasses large parts of the federal states of Saxony, Saxony-Anhalt and Thuringia. Chemnitz lies at the centre of the East German economic axis.
