The brainchild of Nairn Foster (MD) and Justin Craig (CEO), IWLEX was launched with the principle of involving all of the industry to shape the event so that manufacturers and suppliers have access to a broader range of buyers.  The event is now endorsed by UKWA (UK Warehousing Association), AMHSA (Advanced Material Handling Systems Association), RTITB, Institute of Couriers, BCMPA (The Association for Contract Manufacturing, Packing, Fulfilment & Logistics); alongside its media partners Logistic Matters (formerly Handling and Storage Solutions), Warehouse and Logistics News, and now also Forkliftaction.com. With these media partners, IWLEX will extend its reach to a wider audience of targeted buyers and influencers, to the benefit of exhibiting companies.

Nairn Foster, MD of IWELX, comments: "We are very excited about our partnership with Forkliftaction, who don't just have their finger on the pulse of materials handling around the globe, they are the pulse! They have an un-rivalled insight to the market which IWLEX serves. Partnering with Forkliftaction, we will work to put manufacturers and distributors in the UK front and centre of the key buyers they want to speak with."

IWLEX is a purpose driven event founded on six core pillars, inclusivity, sustainability, commerce, innovation, community, and wellbeing.  The show will encourage and showcase best practice in these important areas.  The organisers are particularly keen on presenting new technologies such as solar energy capture to battery storage, to EV machine in warehouses, alongside warehouse to grid and hydrogen fuel.

Foster continues: "Forklifts and materials handling is a constantly evolving and innovative space that encompasses electrified machines, autonomous machines, robots and picking solutions.  It impacts on the heart of warehouse operations and their operational efficiencies.  The call to use more renewable energy to deliver greener warehouses excites us and aligns with our core pillars. We are keen to showcase these advancements at IWLEX."

Ann Hofmans, CEO at Forkliftaction, says: "We are thrilled to support IWLEX and to raise the profile of this inaugural event in Telford, May 2023.  IWLEX is built on some important pillars. Sustainability is critically important for the future of our industry and our planet, and the materials handling industry has so many new developments to showcase in this vital area. At IWLEX industry visitors will be able to learn how new forklifts and materials handling technology can create efficiencies and generate greater profits in a safe and sustainable way."

After advertising with Forkliftaction.com, we got many enquiries regarding interest to be our distributor. Mostly from Europe and USA but including a few in ASEAN. We feel that the advertisement was useful and good for market expansion.
