Beltcon20

...organised for the industry, by the industry


Beltcon20 is scheduled for 31 July and 1 August 2019 and will again be held at St George Hotel and Conference Centre, Midrand, Gauteng, South Africa. Now in its 40th year, this prestigious conference is recognised worldwide as a valuable resource in bringing the very latest developments in materials handling to a wide audience. Up-to-date research, new conveyor techniques, report-backs on methodology and installations and new technology are presented by some of the most eminent international conveying specialists. Beltcon draws on the expertise of distinguished speakers from academia, researchers, professional engineers working in the field and practical, hands-on conveying experts who present two days of informative and absorbing materials handling and conveying information.
