BULK2020 not affected by COVID-19

With BULK2020 set to be one of the biggest events in the Australian bulk handling industry, ABHR speaks to Show Director Simon Coburn to find out more.

The 2020 Australian Bulk Handling Expo (BULK2020) and its sister show MEGATRANS2020 are scheduled to proceed as planned.

BULK2020 organisers Prime Creative Media are closely monitoring developments related to the recent COVID-19 outbreak.

The event is supported by the Victorian State Government, and organisers are working closely with the Department of Home Affairs to receive up-to-date information on health and safety protocols.

Infection rates in Australia are low, and BULK2020 is working alongside the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre (MCEC) to ensure the health and safety of all exhibitors and attendees.
