Launched in 2001, IMHX – The International Materials Handling Exhibition – rapidly established itself as the marquee event for the UK logistics sector. The most recent 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.
Nevertheless, an IMHX event still forms part of the 2021 material handling calendar, with a virtual event – IMHX Connect – replacing the physical exhibition.
IMHX Connect will enable everyone with a stake in the UK material handling sector to build long-lasting relationships with senior industry buyers despite the disruption to in-person events. Unlike other online events, the easy-to-use digital event platform has been built to facilitate effective networking, and we anticipate more than 3,000 decision makers will be online and interacting with more than 100 exhibitors throughout the week.
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.
On behalf of our members, we have negotiated a substantial discount off the networking platform fee, which reduces the cost of participation from £995 to £497.50.
