The Materials Handling Engineers Association (MHEA) has announced a new format for BULKEX17 – a programme of eminent speakers and a new venue. The annual conference of the association will be held in October with a distinctly technical perspective.

A two-day event, titled ‘Bulk Handling Today and Tomorrow, it’ will be focusing on current and impending opportunities and technical achievements in the industry.

It is to be held on 18 to19 October 2017 at Eastwood Hall in Nottingham, with a planned programme of engaging speakers from key projects.

The seminar programme, together with an evening awards event and supporting exhibition, is aimed at professionals, organisations and academics from across the bulk materials handling world.

Michael Kaye, President of the Materials Handling Engineers Association, said: “The UK is about to embark on significant infrastructure investments and the technical conference will encompass a range of industries MHEA is closely involved with. From ports, transport and power, to cement and steel ‘Today and Tomorrow’ will be highlighting key sectors effecting change now and those planning for the decades ahead.

“BULKEX17 is the ideal opportunity for professionals and associates of the bulk materials handling industry to hear about the technical challenges of large projects across the UK. At the same time, they will be able to celebrate the successes of the last year during the awards and find out about the latest services and products available.”
