News service and business centre for materials handlingHOME
As the industry prepares for CeMAT 2016, Forkliftaction is sending its biggest-ever team over for the event.
We're planning a double dose of CeMAT coverage: next week, we'll list some of the product debuts and exhibitor news and we'll follow up on June 9 with some industry analysis based on our interviews with market leaders at the event.
We still have some interview slots available, and if you'd like to share your views with our editorial team, please email to book an appointment or just drop by Hall 25, Stand K11.
If you're releasing new products or have something special on show, please let us know on this link. Looking forward to seeing many of you in Hannover next week.
