BULKEX17 – Bulk Handling Today and Tomorrow

BULKEX, the leading annual event for bulk materials handling, is taking place in just a few weeks’ time at Eastwood Hall, Nottingham on 18 and 19 October. With its line-up of topical and technical speakers plus supporting exhibition, it is drawing attention from far and wide.

Aimed at professionals from across the industry and those in connected industries such as ports, cement, transport, power, quarrying and steel, BULKEX is the ideal opportunity to learn about upcoming projects, business-critical changes, and new technologies.

Seminar Focus
The highlight of BULKEX is its variety and quality of speakers – this year increased to a dozen following the success of 2016. The theme of Bulk Handling Today and Tomorrow focuses on topical and technical subjects of current and future interest to the broad audience mix.
Delegates will be able to listen to BREXIT specialist Joe Owen from think tank Institute for Government answer searching questions on this significant subject. He will be discussing how BREXIT might affect trade with the UK, what our options are and what they mean in practice.

Other speakers include Darryn Quayle, mining expert from UKTI revealing opportunities for business in Chile, and Matt Drew from Saxlund International explaining how to design a successful alternative fuel feed system. A joint presentation from Steven Harrison from Port of Tyne and Ian Atkinson from engineering company CS Spencer describes the port’s biomass handling expansion to serve Lynemouth power station.

All-day networking
Delegates can ask questions after each presentation, and meet the speakers over the complimentary seated lunch in the hotel’s main restaurant. Lunch is included in the ticket price of £60 for one day or £100 for both days.

Between presentations, BULKEX is the perfect place to meet and greet notable names in the sector and network with suppliers, end-users and clients both in the exhibition hall and break-out refreshments area adjacent to the seminar room.

Exhibition extra
Leading companies from the industry will be displaying their products and services to visitors to provide detailed information and answer general or specific enquiries.
Exhibitors are specialists in many different areas of bulk handling: components supply, rollers and motorised pulleys, bespoke design and manufacture, belt conveyors, valves, screens, blowers, exhausters and drive technology.

Central location
BULKEX’s new venue, Eastwood Hall near Nottingham, is a delightful Georgian hotel providing a picturesque setting for the conference. Its Midlands location, close the Nottingham and the M1, is easily accessible from most parts of the UK, as requested by last year’s delegates.

Tremendous response
Michael Kaye, President of the Materials Handling Engineers Association, said: “Convenient location, must-hear seminars, extensive supporting exhibition and networking par excellence – what better reasons could there be to take some extremely productive time away from the office?
“We have had a tremendous response to this year’s BULKEX format, venue and speaker choices. With so much on the horizon, from BREXIT to new UK infrastructure projects, we are covering a great deal of ground in just two days. It’s going to be an event you won’t want to miss.”
