Between 24-27 September over 400 companies will be presenting the latest developments in intralogistics and supply chain technology including some well-known names such as Dematic, Swisslog, Knapp, Vanderlande, Toyota, Crown, Doosan, Briggs and Hyster-Yale appearing again as well as first time exhibitors such as ABB Robotics, loading bay specialists Campisa; forklift truck suppliers BYD and SHS Handling Solutions and intralogistics automation solutions providers, SITMA, VanRiet, WRH Global, 6 River Systems, Rax Solutions and Geek+.

Visitors will also have access to four days of educational content, completely free of charge. The conference programme at IMHX 2019 will feature a roster of thought leaders from organisations that are changing the face of logistics. The seminar programme will also offer practical knowledge, strategic insights driven by real-life case studies, and further essential professional career development.

A full list of conference speakers is being compiled and will be announced shortly, whilst IMHX 2019 show director, Rob Fisher, commenting on the quality of those on show, observed:

“Exhibitors are the key to any successful trade fair: leading innovators attract visitors and the quality and sheer number of companies exhibiting at IMHX 2019 will inspire the logistics and supply chain community at the NEC in September.”
