Informa Exhibitions Ltd regrets to announce the closure of Solids & Bulk Handling magazine.

Solids & Bulk Handling magazine has been affected by the ongoing downward trend of on-the-page marketing spend. This combined with the economic pressures that the loose and solids handling industry face has ultimately led to the sad and difficult decision to cease publishing the magazine.

The November/December 2017 issue of Solids & Bulk Handling will be its last edition.



The Institute of Quarrying has confirmed that attendance at BULKEX will qualify its members for six CPD (continuing professional development) points.

The two-day conference, organised by the Materials Handling Engineers Association is being held on 18 and 19 October at Eastwood Hall, near Nottingham, and has a programmer of 12 presentations on a host of topics related to the bulk materials handling sector and associated industries.

President of the MHEA, Michael Kaye, said: “It’s excellent news that the Institute of Quarrying has recognised the value of BULKEX as forum for keeping abreast of industry developments and new technology. We have put together a schedule of varied and informative seminars across the two days and feel confident that all delegates will leave with plenty of insights, food for thought and actions to take.”

Registration can be made online or by calling the BULKEX team on 01787 226295.
