Final Call For Papers - MHEA
- 20 January 2012
- Company & Industry News
MHEA now in its 74th year is offering the opportunity for speakers from the Bulk Materials Handling sector and associated sectors the opportunity of presenting papers to a wide and attentive audience.
Delegates who attended Bulk2011 were asked after the event to comment on what they thought about the presentations and on what benefits it bought to them. Delegates gave the event top marks for the technical and informative content of the papers, the wide range of subject matter and excellent audio visual equipment. Speakers from last year’s conference also felt they got a great opportunity of informing a large audience of their latest technologies and innovations. Both Delegates and Speakers agreed wholeheartedly that the networking opportunity the event offered to Speakers and Delegates was superb.
The event will be held again at the highly attractive Forest Pines Resort Complex which provides excellent facilities for business, conference and leisure. The timing will follow the revised format from last year to give a more balanced event over a Wednesday/Thursday, to allow time to travel on the Wednesday morning, and the offering the option of a sports event/leisure break on the Friday. The event will encompass keynote and plenary presentations, gala dinner and after dinner speaker entertainment.
Accompanying the conference will be a related exhibition, integrated into the conference area. Opportunities are available for event and item sponsorship ensuring outstanding opportunities for corporate entertainment and networking.
Moving from a specifically focussed technical seminar to a more all-embracing Industry Conference we aim to broaden the delegate profile and include all matters relating to bulk handling with a separate provision for commercial presentations.
If you are in this sector please consider sending a paper for consideration for inclusion in Bulk2012. Submissions relating to technical innovation or process improvements will be given preference, particularly those relating to heavy industries such as minerals processing and cement, metal manufacture, power, port operations, mining, waste processing and recycling.
Specific timetabled slots in the programme are available for commercial presentations which can also be arranged through the secretary.
Initial submissions, in form of a synopsis, should be addressed to the secretary Peter Webster by e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org To be received by Jan 31st 2012.
