The organiser of IntraLogisteX, a new logistics and supply chain solutions event, is preparing for its Ricoh Arena launch, with 85 per cent of space already sold.
IntraLogisteX’s Dan Stone said that as well as UK exhibitors, companies were travelling from the USA, Belgium and the Czech Republic to take part.
“For the last 12 years we have run logistics exhibitions three times a year in different locations across England but the feed-back from visitors and exhibitors was that it would be more useful to have one bigger show in a central location,” he said.
“We chose the Ricoh Arena because we wanted a venue which was easily accessible and within an easy commute. The show is targeted at various aspects of the industry ranging from warehouse and logistics to distribution and transportation and the response has been fantastic.”
IntraLogisteX will bring together the strengths of two established shows, Logistics Link South and Logistics Link Live, to create a larger, better value exhibition that will deliver the visitor quality and numbers that exhibitors are looking for, said the organiser, combined with the brands of Logistics Manager and Supply Chain Standard.
Around 70 exhibitors including FedEx and DPS International will be showcasing their products and services, and Aldi, Argos, John Lewis and Marks & Spencer are confirmed visitors.
More than 1,000 visitors are expected the attend the show on 25-26 March.
“It will be a chance for companies throughout the logistics and supply chain industry to showcase their innovative products while visitors can also watch demonstrations and attend seminars,” Stone added.
Angela Perkins, head of sales at the Ricoh Arena, said: “IntraLogisteX will be a comprehensive show for the logistics and supply chain sector and it is perfect for finding out about state-of-the-art technology as well as hearing presentations from leading personnel.
“To have virtually sold-out the exhibition space a month before the show is taking place underlines the demand from those involved in the industry.”
