A brand new exhibition and combined seminar program for 2015 has been launched by the UK’s Materials Handling Engineers’ Association (MHEA). BULKEX 2015 will debut at the Harrogate International Conference Centre, October 21-22, and will provide a great opportunity to bring together senior executives from all areas of the materials handling industry. “We’re delighted to announce this brand new event for our members and the wider materials handling industry,” comments Mike Redmond, Chairman “Historically, the Association has organised separate, smaller scale exhibitions and conferences, but for the first time ever, we are bringing these together under one roof to provide visitors and exhibitors alike with a much more comprehensive marketing and learning opportunity.”More than 50 exhibitors covering a wide range of areas are expected to showcase their products and services to industry colleagues. In addition to seeing the latest products on offer, visitors will be able to hear about the latest developments affecting their business in a series of seminar sessions that will cover areas such as power, cement, ports, mining, recycling and building products.BULKEX 2015 will be free to attend for visitors meanwhile companies wishing to exhibit at the event can take advantage of early bird exhibitor and sponsorship packages if booked before the end of February 2015.The MHEA was formed in 1938 by inaugural Chairman Frank Lonsdale, Director of Fraser Chalmers Engineering – which later became the General Electric Co. Since its foundation the MHEA has supported the technical and commercial interests of UK and overseas companies supplying and using powder and bulk handling equipment.
