Productivity and safety mega shows in Sydney


Productivity and safety will come together when BULKEX, Sydney Materials Handling and The Safety Show Sydney run concurrently at the Sydney Showground for the first time this year. 

The three events will occupy four acres of the Sydney Olympic Park site from October 25 to 27, drawing an anticipated 10,000 visitors.

BULKEX's organisers say the combined events will have much to offer its traditional patrons: bulk handling engineers and technicians from mining, agricultural, pharmaceuticals, forestry, chemicals, fertilizers, and transport and storage facilities.

"Visitors will get the best of both worlds," says Megan Rogulski, exhibition and sponsorship manager. "BULKEX remains a specialist event dedicated to bulk and powder handling but visitors can now also see what's new in materials handling and safety at the same time. In one trip to the Sydney Showground, you'll be able to do a year's worth of research into lift, move and load – no matter what the application."

Among the exhibitors already confirmed for BULKEX 2011 are ESS, 4B Braime, Brice Baker, Dwyer, Fluke, Kinder & Co, Ross Brown Sales, Recycling Systems Australia, Vibrations Systems & Solutions, Eriez Magnetics, Fluke Australia, Pressure Systems, and RUD Chains.

The focus will include materials handling and transportation, dust collection, weighing systems and scales, feeders, and packaging and bagging.

BULKEX exhibitors will see thousands more visitors through the show in 2011 thanks to the additional drawing power of Sydney Materials Handling and The Safety Show Sydney. The two annual shows have routinely seen around 10,000 visitors from industry through their doors in defiance of the global financial crisis.

Organisers are also launching a dedicated conference following the successful co-location of industry conferences with BULKEX 2009.

The one-day conference will be supported by a second day of intensive interactive workshops.
