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.


MHEA begins its paper chase! October 04, 2013

MHEA begins its paper chase!

The Materials Handling Engineers Association (MHEA) has issued a Call for Papers for next year’s Bulk Handling Conference.

While no areas relating to bulk handling are off grounds, submissions relating to technical innovation or process improvements will be given preference at Bulk2014.

The annual Bulk Handling Conference is where the great and good of the industry come together under one-roof, so it’s a fantastic opportunity for those presenting papers to grab the attention of those who really matter.

So whether you’re showcasing your company’s latest development or discussing improvements in the industry, the MHEA would be delighted to hear from you.

Initial submissions, in the form of a synopsis, should be sent to Christine Joyce at .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address) by 31 January 2014.

The event, being held at the Forest Pines Conference Centre in North Lincolnshire on 21st and 22nd May, also includes keynote and plenary presentations, as well as a gala dinner and after dinner speaker entertainment.

In addition to the conference there will be a related exhibition for which space bookings are now being taken.

Feedback from previous exhibitors is that it’s very rewarding, so I would urge those interested to book without delay to avoid disappointment.

Other ways to get involved in Bulk2014 include plenty of sponsorship opportunities, whether that’s an event or an item, while timetabled slots in the programme are also available for commercial presentations. For more information, visit
