HARROGATE – Are you part of the bulk and materials handling industry? Then sign up for your free ticket to BULKEX 2015 now. BULKEX 2015 – the first major exhibition and conference of its kind for colleagues throughout the bulk and materials handling industry – is being organised by the Materials Handling Engineers Association (MHEA).
It will debut at the Harrogate International Conference Centre on Wednesday 21 October and Thursday 22 October.
More than 50 exhibitors will showcase their products and services at this inaugural event.
Meanwhile, a series of seminars and presentations have been lined up from a host of speakers covering areas such as power, cement, ports, mining, recycling and building products and industries.
Tickets to the event are free. Tickets can be reserved online at www.mhea.co.uk or by using a new ‘Guidebook’ app, which can be downloaded from the app store.
The new ‘Guidebook’ app can be used in advance or at the event itself to navigate exhibition stands and make sure attendees don’t miss any activities or seminar sessions.
The app has been created to be a ‘companion’ for visitors to the conference to plan their time at BULKEX in advance and to get the most out of seminar sessions. The app includes a full programme, twitter feed – tracking the hashtag #BULKEX15 – and a networking forum for visitors to communicate with each other.
It also includes vital information to help attendees to book accommodation and find their way to the venue.
BULKEX 2015 is being sponsored by Siemens Automation and Drives Group, ATEX Explosion Hazards Ltd and Flexco.
