IPBS RETURNS APRIL 27–29, 2021
iPBS is Going Virtual for 2020
In light of the growing concern surrounding COVID-19, and in accordance with the guidance of the State of Illinois, Informa Markets – Engineering has made the difficult decision to reschedule the International Powder & Bulk Solids Conference & Exhibition (iPBS) to 2021, and shift to a digital format for 2020. We appreciate the unwavering support of our key partner, Process Equipment Manufacturers’ Association (PEMA), who have worked with us to come to this decision. The health and safety of our event community is our highest priority.
iPBS will now take place April 27–29, 2021 at the same location — the Donald E. Stephens Convention Center in Rosemont, IL.
We know how important it is for our event community to stay informed and connected, especially in a time when budgets, and even the freedom of movement, are constrained. This is why we are thrilled to announce the launch of The Powder Show Digital Flow, a potent blend of education, product demonstrations, and virtual networking opportunities to help you continue to grow your business. Our first digital day is set for October 1st.
We will continue to post updates on our website as soon as they become available. For more information, please visit our COVID-19 Frequently Asked Questions page.
Thank you for your understanding and support, we look forward to seeing you online this Fall and in Rosemont in 2021.
