BULKEX will be partnering with Sydney Materials Handling and The Safety Show Sydney for the first time, with the three exhibitions side by side and under one roof at the Sydney Showground, Sydney Olympic Park.
The focus of BULKEX 2011 will include conveying systems and technologies, apron feeders, materials handling and transportation, dust collection, weighing systems and scales, and packaging and bagging.
Acromet, Downfields Engineering, Nu-Con Australia, Steinert Australia, STIF Asia, and Unasco are some of the exhibitors which have recently confirmed their support for BULKEX.
Megan Rogulski, exhibition and sponsorship manager for BULKEX said “exhibition stands are filling fast so bulk handlers had better book their stands now. Exhibitors can display their wares to bulk handling engineers and technicians from mining, agricultural, pharmaceuticals, forestry, chemicals, fertilizers and transport and storage facilities.”
Exhibitors already confirmed and mentioned previously in AJM include ESS, 4B Braime, Brice Baker, Dwyer, Fluke, Kinder & Co, Ross Brown Sales, Recycling Systems Australia, Vibrations Systems &Solutions, Eriez Magnetics, Pressure Systems, and RUD Chains.
Serendipitously, the Australian Bulk Handling Awards will this year fall within the BULKEX window, being held on October26th at Doltone House in Sydney.
“Industry players already in town for the show would be well advised to step across the city to the picturesque location of Doltone House, Darling Harbour, to attend the industry’s night of nights,” said Charles Macdonald, convenor of the Awards’ judging panel.
On board as sponsors for this year’s Awards are ESS Engineering Services, sponsoring the Bulk Handling Facility of the Year award, Tenova TAKRAF has backed the Best Practice in OH&S category, Brightwater Engineering Solutions is backing the Innovative Technology award and Integrated Bulk Systems is on board for the Transport and Conveying award. Bonfiglioli is sponsoring champagne cocktails at the start of the event.
Steve Davis, a chief engineer at Bechtel, will join the judging panel for the first time. Steve’s recent assignments have included acting us: lead materials engineer on an oil sand project, management of the Anvil Hill CHPP design, preceded by completion of the NCIG coal terminal feasibility study as engineering manager. Steve is currently working on studies and projects for copper, coal, iron ore, alumina and bauxite ore materials handling, and in particular as lead for the Caval Ridge CHP design.
Organisers of BULKEX are also launching a dedicated industry conference.
“The 2011 BULKEX Conference will bring together Australia’s foremost practitioners of bulk materials and powder handling,” said BULKEX general manager Tim Bostridge.
BULKEX, Sydney Materials Handling and The Safety Show Sydney will run concurrently at the Sydney Showground, Sydney Olympic Park from October 25 to 27.
