The Powder Show Will Return this Fall

The health, safety, and needs of the industry are and always have been our utmost priority. At the guidance of the World Health Organization (WHO) and leading health authorities, we have made the decision to reschedule the 2020 International Powder & Bulk Solids Conference & Exhibition in light of growing concerns caused by coronavirus (COVID-19).

After careful consideration from our Informa Markets Managed Postponement Program, we have come to an overwhelming consensus that rescheduling iPBS is the appropriate response to ensure the well-being of our exhibitors, attendees, speakers, and staff.


iPBS will now take place October 6 – 8, 2020 at the same location — the Donald E. Stephens Convention Center in Rosemont, IL. We appreciate the unwavering support of our key partner, Process Equipment Manufacturers’ Association (PEMA), which stands behind our decision to reschedule the event.

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 in Rosemont this fall.
