The Materials Handling Engineers Association has launched BULKEX 2019. The annual conference and exhibition takes place between 16 -17 October at the Eastwood Hall Hotel, Nottingham, and is a must-attend event for anyone involved in the bulk materials handling industry or affected by it. The two-day event features a full speaker programme and industry awards dinner on the evening of 16 October.
The MHEA has issued a Call for Papers for BULKEX 2019 and is inviting anyone who has an interest in the materials handling industry to submit a paper to be included at the Conference by 19 March. The first speaker announced is Mike Brinkley Head of Strategy for Supply Chain Operations, Network Rail, with more to follow.
Papers presented at the conference will be determined by the contributions received but are likely to include: developments in materials handling; drives and transmissions; loading, unloading, storage and reclaim; crushing, screening and washing; control of impact, abrasion and erosion; spillage and dust control; storage and reclaim; biomass handling; waste and recycling; control, meeting and management systems; energy efficiency; operation and maintenance; regulatory compliance; HSEQ; feature a case study, or provide insight into industry developments or the economic outlook.
Submissions relating to technical innovation or process improvements will be given preference, particularly those relating to heavy materials, such as minerals processing and cement, metal manufacture, power, port operations, mining, waste processing, transport and recycling, and should be sent by email to the email@example.com.
During BULKEX, the MHEA will also be hosting its Industry Excellence Awards Dinner, a celebration of the industry’s finest achievements. Entries for the Excellence Awards will open in March with full details available on the website.
There are an exciting range of sponsorship packages available for the event. The headline sponsor has already been taken and the awards dinner sponsor is no longer available. With a host of flexible packages available for the awards dinner, awards categories and other opportunities during BULKEX, businesses should enquire as soon as possible if they are interested.
Exhibition stands are £495.00 for members and £595.00 for non-members. Exhibitors are advised to contact Teresa at the MHEA early to ensure they obtain their preferred location. Availability is changing daily, as stands are already starting to sell due to high demand.
John Connolly, President of the MHEA, said: “BULKEX is our must-attend flagship event, attracting industry leaders and influencers to exhibit. It’s an excellent forum to meet colleagues and peers; to listen and share the latest news, innovative ideas and good practice; as well as hear from leading industry experts. As we call for papers, we anticipate another high calibre programme that will make BULKEX unmissable this year.”
