Launched in 2001, IMHX – The International Materials Handling Exhibition – rapidly established itself as the marquee event for the UK logistics sector. The most recent live IMHX event took place at the National Exhibition Centre in Birmingham in September 2019. The event attracted more than 450 exhibitors and thousands of visitors packed out the four halls across the four days of the show.
The announcement was made at the 2019 event that the exhibition would become a biennial event from 2021. Sadly, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, organisers have been forced to take the decison to postpone the 2021 event by 12 months. Therefore, the next live IMHX will now take place at the NEC between 6-8th September 2022.
To bridge the gap between the 2019 event and the rescheduled live exhibition in 2022, a virtual event – IMHX Connect – took place in September 2021. The week-long online event attracted widespread support from the material handling and logistics sectors, helping to re-establish contacts and exchange information on new developments across the industries.
IMHX 2022, which takes place at the NEC in Birmingham between 6-8th September, is the only event of its kind in the UK and is attended by thousands of prospective customers seeking to source new solutions to improve warehousing operations, stay ahead of the latest supply chain trends and grow their professional network.
Exhibitors will be able to increase awareness and brand visibility, showcase their products in real time with live demonstrations, drive business, exchange ideas and help the industry to reconnect. They will also be able to target thousands of buyers and decision-makers from across the material handling, supply chain and logistics sectors.
Anyone who has an interest in the UK material handling sector should not to miss out on this experience.
With BITA now an integral part of the UK Material Handling Association, the new association has taken over from BITA as the 50-50 Joint Venture Partner in the IMHX Show, alongside Informa Markets.
