The most recent event took place between 24 – 27 September 2019 at the NEC, Birmingham where more than 450 exhibitors showcased their latest intralogistics solutions. Thousands of visitors packed out the four halls across the four days, all eager to catch up with the latest products and trends in the material handling sector.
Previously held every three years, from 2021 the exhibition will become a biennial event, helping to keep all those working within the material handling sector, fully up to date with the latest developments in the industry.
IMHX 2019 was an unparalleled opportunity to see the newest products and services to enter the market, connect with new and existing suppliers, and stay one step ahead of the trends that are transforming the logistics industry.
James Clark, Secretary General, BITA said: “As the largest event of its kind in the UK, IMHX 2019 once again provided the perfect opportunity to check the condition of the material handling industry. It was great to see all the new products on display, with the various stands offering an invaluable insight into the future direction of the industry.
“Anyone working in the material industry should not miss out on the opportunity to attend or even better, exhibit.
“The decision to switch the event to a biennial exhibition is also a positive one for the sector and reinforces the optimism currently surrounding the industry.”
Improving safety within the material handling industry has always been a priority for BITA and this was again once again highlighted in the Design4Safety Awards. The awards, which are announced during IMHX, recognise the outstanding achievements of forklift manufacturers and service providers in developing new solutions to improve industry safety standards.
This year was no different and IMHX 2019 offered the perfect platform for companies to showcase their latest innovative designs and their drive and determination to see a safer material handling industry is to be applauded.
IMHX will return to the NEC, Birmingham from 14 – 16 September 2021.
