The Industry's Leading International Powder & Bulk Solids Conference is Back With a Richer Curriculum and Increased Flexibility

ROSEMONT, Illinois, March 10, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --

The International Powder Bulk & Solids Conference will be held on May 6-8, 2014 at the Donald E. Stephen's Convention Center, alongside the Powder Show Exhibition.

This is the number one meeting place for America's powder and bulk specialists and is recognized as the leading place to gain high-impact education from world-renowned experts in the field.

The three-day/four-track conference is the industry's only focused educational event for processing technologies in powder and bulk and heavy bulk material handling. The "Powder Show," as it is widely known, has consistently connected decision-makers and engineers with the world's top suppliers and experts, making it the singular go-to event for specialists working in this field.

This event takes place every other year, so it jam packs its three-day stretch with a comprehensive range of educational topics that engineers, plant managers, and other industry personnel rely on to stay up-to-speed on safety, solutions, best practices, and compliance.

"The positive trend reflected each year is the satisfaction that the attendees of the PBS Conference walk away with, and the big potential it gives each of them in providing information they can use to identify the cause of a particular problem they are experiencing, or practical solutions to common handling problems," explains Joe Marinelli, the well-known industry guru from the popular column, Ask Joe.

Featuring 40 presentations with representation from the world's leaders in the field, this program truly earns its title as international, with hardly a curriculum rival in sight. Countries participating on the speaking faculty include: Australia, Spain, Germany, Israel, India, Japan, England, Scotland, and the United States.

Topics throughout the event include the technical know-how  and strategies required to enhance process and increase efficiency (not to mention stay safe), like pneumatic conveying, weighing and feeding, dust control, mechanical handling, storage and discharge, drying, material characterization, bulk solids flow, dust explosion prevention, component design, and regulatory standards, just to name a few.

OSHA, the NFPA, industry experts, and carefully selected consultants will drill-down on their areas of expertise, making this the perfect venue for addressing the challenges and opportunities in production, storage, and transport.

For the first time ever, the conference is making its content offerings much more flexible by cutting down the time of each session to 1.5 hours, allowing for the consumption of more topics each day. It will also feature technology panel discussions, industry case studies in the food, pharma, and chemical fields, and a pre-conference mixer hosted by the Taste of Rosemont on Monday, May 5th where pre-registered expo visitors can meet the Advisory Board that makes up the brain trust behind the content.
