In the construction sector, the bulk handling industry is instrumental in transporting substantial quantities of essential raw materials like aggregates, sand, gravel and cement to construction sites. These materials form the backbone of various construction projects, including roads, bridges, buildings and infrastructure.

Moreover, the construction industry heavily relies on specialised equipment such as conveyor systems, cranes and loaders for handling bulk materials. The continuous advancement of this equipment by the bulk handling industry contributes significantly to the overall progress of construction processes.

The seamless coordination between the bulk handling and construction industries is fundamental for the smooth execution of building and infrastructure projects, making BULK2024 an invaluable event for construction leaders and businesses seeking new ways to bolster their operations.

Lauren Chartres, BULK2024 show director, emphasises the event’s commitment to equipping the industry with essential tools for success. “In line with market feedback, this year’s show will focus on industry trends such as the future of automation,” says Chartres. “It will address key challenges currently faced by the industry, including skills shortages and an ageing workforce.”

The event is designed to empower those in heavy industry to move their products to where they are needed most, both on a national and global scale. It will feature an expansive trade show, spotlighting the latest industry solutions, and will host a two‐day informative conference discussing strategies for businesses to stay at the leading edge in a constantly changing world.

As bulk handling undergoes rapid transformations driven by technological advancements and the surge in automation, BULK2024 will pave the way for visionary businesses. It will accelerate the progress of not only the bulk handling industry but also the sectors it supports, propelling them toward success.
