Registration is now open for IMHX 2022, which returns 6-8 September to the NEC, Birmingham as the UK’s premier event for those involved in managing, maintaining, and optimising the operations that keep supply chains moving.

IMHX, which is proud to work with Automation Magazine as a supporting media partner, returns this year for the first time since 2019 and will unite thousands of industry leaders, stakeholders, and professionals with hundreds of world-class suppliers across three days of interactive demonstrations, exciting new product announcements and inspiring learning opportunities; ultimately empowering the industry to stay ahead of the ever-evolving challenges facing logistics and supply chain processes.

The exhibition at IMHX has undoubtably become the UK’s most efficient way of doing business for the industry with a diverse range of suppliers, and this year is set to be no different. Services and products focusing on artificial intelligence, robotics, automated handling systems and supply chain technology are just some of the solutions set to be showcased on the busy show floor.

The show floor itself is also home to a number of exciting event features, including the ever-popular IMHX Demo Zone and 2022 newcomer, the Sustainability Zone, which is delivered by the SEC Group and is set to be one of the most innovative new experience at this year’s event.

The Sustainability Zone is designed to merge virtual with reality to immerse visitors in a warehouse serviced by readily available technologies that enhance the sustainability of operations – all without leaving the show floor.

IMHX 2022 group director, Rob Fisher, commented: “While the power of technology has enabled us to stay connected over the last three years, we are really delighted to be able to safely welcome our community back to IMHX this year for a face-to-face event.”

“Once again, we look forward to working with UK Materials Handling Association to provide an essential opportunity for professionals to source supply chain solutions, discover the very latest in technological advancements and gain actionable insights that will enable them to create stronger, more sustainable operations today that will stand the test of tomorrow’s challenges,” continued Fisher.

In addition to the full exhibition floor which includes names such as Whittan Group, Knapp, Combilift, Geekplus, Cesab, Zebra Technologies and Swisslog, IMHX 2022 will host a multi-track series of educational seminars, talks and workshops, with each covering key industry themes and trends. The full agenda, which is supported by Cranfield University as the official Academic Partner, is set to be released soon and will feature some of the industry’s most influential, innovative and pioneering minds as conference speakers.

Fisher also commented: “The main conference at IMHX 2022 will focus specifically on sustainability, while the Logistics Solutions agenda will dive into how advancements in technology and product design are driving key efficiency gains.”

“As new supply chain challenges continue to emerge amidst the demands of an ever-growing population, both the conference and exhibition at IMHX will provide the ultimate opportunity for this important industry to prepare and protect their operations,” continued Fisher.
