About Beltcon 2019

Beltcon 19 is scheduled for 31 July and 1 August 2019 and will be held at St George’s Hotel and Conference Centre, Pretoria, South Africa. Beltcon is the leading conveyor event in Africa. Once again the speaker line-up is impressive, with famous international names on the programme.

Of course our local South African experts are well represented too. This conference is organised by a dedicated committee of volunteers from the South African conveyor industry and will appeal to decisionmakers, designers, engineers, manufacturers and constructors in the sphere of belt conveying.

What is the IMHC?
The International Materials Handling Conference is an autonomous body managed by a committee of individuals drawn from the conveyor industry.

Conferences have been held every two years in an unbroken line from Beltcon 1 held in 1981, Beltcon 2 in 1983 right up until Beltcon 19 in 2019.

The conference is very much organised by the industry for the industry and is aimed at disseminating information on the latest technology as well as presenting case study papers and new ideas for design, safety and operation of belt conveyors.

Emphasis is placed on bringing practical information to the industry and technical past papers of conferences are made available for posterity on the website.

The IMHC is underwritten by the three associations that play a prominent part in the materials handling industry. They are the CMA (Conveyor Manufacturers Association of SA Ltd), the SAIMechE (The SA Institution of Mechanical Engineering), and the SAIMH (SA Institute of Materials Handling).
