With just four months to go until BULKEX17: BULK HANDLING TODAY AND TOMORROW, James Bullock of the MHEA Executive Committee shares his views on why BUKLEX is a key industry event:
“Our objective with BULKEX is to help the industry, help energise it and create a buzz by establishing a forum for sharing ideas, sharing best practice and knowledge, and stimulating debate.
“I believe BULKEX is one of the most important things the MHEA does, providing a platform where we bring together industry thought leaders and spark discussion about materials handling and where the industry is going.
“At the conference, we explore new sectors as new industries emerge. We can’t control the economy and the decline of coal and steel, but we can reflect the changes by shifting focus and evolving, for example to embrace biomass and renewables.
“BULKEX is where people from across the bulk materials and other industries gather together in one place. It’s where business gets done and it gives all suppliers the opportunity to interact with leading end users in the market.
“My company, ProSpare, has exhibited at every BULKEX conference – it’s fairly low cost and for relatively little time and effort offers great exposure as lots of people from the industry are there.”
BULKEX, the annual conference of the MHEA has a line-up of key technical speakers and is attended by professionals within the bulk materials handling industry and allied sectors such as ports, quarrying, cement, energy, transport and steel.
Taking place on 18 and 19 October at Eastwood Hall, Nottingham, BULKEX17 is supported by an exhibition and the MHEA Excellence Awards dinner.
