Cutting-edge technology from an increasingly thriving sector will be showcased at IntraLogisteX in the Jaguar Exhibition Hall between 9.30am-4pm on Wednesday, March 16 and from 9.30am until 3.30pm on Thursday, March 17.
New products will be on display from around 60 logistics and transport exhibitors who are involved in warehousing, handling materials, picking and sorting, IT and software, storage, warehouse infrastructure and services, and packaging.
Live demonstrations will take place along with a packed seminar programme with a focus on giving a practical insight into technological innovations.
Visitors will have the opportunity to find out more about innovations which are reducing costs and improving technology at the show.
Andy Gibb, managing director of the Ricoh Arena, said this was the second IntraLogisteX show to be held at the venue.
“The launch event earlier this year was a tremendous success since it proved to be a crucial two days for those professionals involved in the industry who are looking to stay ahead of their competitors in a competitive sector,” he said.
“The 2016 exhibition will once again give exhibitors from across the UK the opportunity to unveil their latest products and services.
“With more and more people buying items on the internet, it is increasingly important for UK companies to ensure they have the right logistical systems in place to deliver to customers on time whether that is picking, IT or packaging.
“This exhibition, for those who work in the industry, also hosts seminars which are a great opportunity for experienced professionals to pass on their advice and answer questions.
“Since the show takes place over two days, there are plenty of opportunities to network and make new business contacts with the high calibre of exhibitors who attend which is really important in all industries and not surprisingly it led to exhibitors winning new work this year.”
He added: “The Ricoh Arena continues to attract exhibitions from a wide variety of business and leisure sectors whose visitors are travelling from across the UK.
“The venue is one the most accessible venues in the UK and situated within a two-hour drive time for 75 per cent of the UK’s population. Our location in the heart of England and near the major motorway networks means we are easy-to-reach for visitors and exhibitors alike which is really important.”
