Beltcon 21 : Dates are not yet set for this South African event, but hoping it is not too long before we can bring you the premier global conveyor conference once again. In the meantime, please browse through the Archives where you will find all past papers from Beltcon 1 right through to the most recent conference, Beltcon 20!


...organised for the industry, by the industry

Beltcon20 was held on the 31 July and 1 August 2019 at St George Hotel and Conference Centre, Irene, 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.
