If you only visit one logistics event in 2013, it has to be IMHX. Held at the NEC in Birmingham from 19-22 March, the show will feature over 400 exhibitors and the organisers are confident that it will be the best ever.
Held once every three years, IMHX is the UK’s premier intralogistics event, showcasing the latest products and services to optimise materials handling, storage and transport. Visitors will benefit from the expanded ‘Logistics Excellence‘ conference programme, with both strategic level seminars and case study presentations.
The supersonic Bloodhound vehicle will be wowing visitors to the show’s first ever Skills & Apprenticeships Zone. Displayed on stand of one of its sponsors – Linde Material Handling – Bloodhound SSC is a jet- and rocket-powered car designed to set a new World Land Speed Record of 1000mph. The Skills & Apprenticeships Zone – spearheaded by the BITA Academy, a dedicated apprenticeship training facility for the handling industry – will also feature the winning vehicles from BITA’s ‘Enduro Challenge’ engineering competition for secondary schools, some hands-on engineering activities and a consultation area for employers.
Also brand-new at IMHX will be the UKWA 3PL Zone, hosted by the United Kingdom Warehousing Association, and the International Visitors’ Lounge, where visitors from overseas can relax or hold meetings. With many exhibitors using IMHX as the launch pad for new products and over 40 first-time exhibitors, visitors are guaranteed to see a whole host of new ideas.
The heats of what promises to be another hotly contested RTITB Operator of the Year Competition will take place at IMHX. Over the four days of the show, forklift operators from across the UK and Ireland will compete in a special arena, with the best moving forward to the Grand Final in September, where they will have the chance to win a brand-new car.
The show will once again feature the AMHSA Pavilion, hosted by the Automated Material Handling Systems Association, and the Design 4 Safety Awards, which recognise the importance of product design in improving safety throughout the material handling industry.
