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.


Improve your bulk materials handling knowledge January 13, 2015

Short Courses at the Wolfson Centre for Bulk Solids Handling Technology are designed for Engineers, Managers, Skilled operatives, Maintenance crew, Equipment designers and manufacturers – anyone involved in the handling and processing of bulk powders and particulates.
  • New, advanced courses are available this year, for those with an existing knowledge in solids handling;
  • Practical sessions feature heavily in more courses this year, allowing delegates the opportunity to use equipment not normally available to them;
  • Demonstrations of our unique equipment have also become more frequent due to popular demand;


If the dates of the courses are not suitable and you have several delegates wanting to attend, why not talk to us about holding your own In-Company course – where you chose the topics and dates?
