IMHX 2019 is set to be the biggest and most successful event in the long-running IMHX series of materials handling exhibitions.

More than 400 exhibitors – including Dematic, Swisslog, Knapp, Vanderlande, Toyota, Crown, Doosan, Briggs and Hyster Europe – will deliver live and dynamic demonstrations of the latest technological developments shaping the modern logistics industry.

IMHX 2019 exhibition director, Rob Fisher, comments: “IMHX is always a key diary date for logistics professionals. With the vast array of equipment, solutions, and technology on show this year, IMHX 2019 is no exception.”

He continues: “Supply chain issues are at the top of every company’s agenda. The relentless rise of e-commerce is forcing retailers, manufacturers and logistics operators to adapt the design of their facilities to keep pace with today’s consumers, who demand ever-faster and more efficient delivery of goods.”

As a result, Rob argues, the traditional storage warehouses are being transformed “into massive technology-enabled, high-volume order-fulfilment centres, built to ensure that every square inch of the site is optimised.”

Developments in intralogistics systems are advancing more rapidly than ever before and many of the changes are, not surprisingly, being driven by developments in automation and robotics.

This ever-expanding role of AI, automation and robotics within the modern supply chain will be reflected at IMHX 2019.

“With over a third of exhibitors showcasing some form of automation, robotics, autonomous vehicles or new tech, visitors to IMHX will be able to see and feel this cutting-edge technology for themselves. There’s also the opportunity to get a greater understanding of how it can be implemented – and then deliver the operational benefits they are looking for,” says Rob.

IMHX 2019 visitors and exhibitors have access to four days of educational content, free of charge.

In addition to hundreds of product launches and demonstrations, the IMHX Technology Arena – new for IMHX 2019 – will be of particular interest to visitors.

This exciting new zone, which is being delivered by AMHSA – the leading trade association for logistics automation providers – will allow visitors to experience the evolution of picking technology that is enabling the rise of e-commerce.

“AMHSA will provide an interactive feature that explains picking technological developments and demonstrates how automation brings speed and accuracy to the picking operation,” says AMHSA secretary, Dave Berridge.

“AMHSA experts will be on hand to explain different picking technologies and provide professional advice on all aspects of logistics automation.”

Visitors and exhibitors alike will also have access to four days of exciting educational content, completely free of charge.

The compelling IMHX 2019 conference programme will feature a roster of inspiring thought leaders from leading organisations who 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.

Registration is now open to attend IMHX 2019, which takes place on 24 – 27 September at NEC Birmingham.
