There are still tickets available to the ‘don’t miss’ event of the year – BULKEX 2015.
Tickets for BULKEX 2015 are free – it will be the first major exhibition and conference of its kind for colleagues across the bulk and materials handling industry.
The exhibition and conference is being organised by the Materials Handling Engineers Association (MHEA) and will take place at the Harrogate International Conference Centre this October (Wednesday 21 and Thursday 22).
Last year’s MHEA conference was opened by the former Minister for Energy and Climate change Chris Huhne, who spoke of the effects of alternative energy and bio mass imports.
This year’s seminar programme will cover areas including ports, power, mining, steel and cement and speakers will include some of the industry’s most recognisable and leading figures.
At the event, Siemens will unveil details about its £160 million wind energy investments in Green Port, Hull and there will be a presentation from SIRIUS Minerals in York about its new mine development for 13 M tonnes/year export of potash, which at full production will bring an annual contribution of over £1 billion to the UK.
Other speakers include representatives from the Port of Rotterdam, which ships significant bio mass and coal for UK carbon reductions and power generation and Wolf Minerals which will unveil details of its £100 million investment in the Hemerdon Tungsten Mine located three kilometres outside Dartmoor National Park, which will be largest in Europe.
Other key speakers are highlighted below.
Mike Redmond, President of the Materials Handling Engineers Association believes this autumn’s national exhibition and seminar programme will be an unmissable event for colleagues across the industry. Those wishing to attend should sign up now for a free ticket and attend “what promises to be a high profile and most informative event”.
Mike Redmond explained: “There has been much discussion about developing the Northern Power House – a theme that has caught much media and political attention. This conference provides a very real platform and some concrete examples of that ambition.”
The MHEA is a trade association, representing the bulk materials handling and associated industries. Member companies range from large corporate global organisations to small to medium sized enterprises – all supporting the industry.
More than 50 exhibitors will showcase their products and services. Tickets to the event are free and can be reserved by visiting the website at www.mhea.co.uk or by using a new ‘Guidebook’ app, which can be downloaded from the app store.
BULKEX 2015 is sponsored this year by Siemens Automation and Drives Group, ATEX Explosion Hazards Ltd and Flexco.
