Busy stands at IMHX
Last month’s IMHX trade show attracted "over 16,000 senior executives", according to organisers. The previous show, in 2016, drew 16,082 visitors.

The big increase was on the exhibition side, with 450 exhibitors on display this year – up from 406 last time around. There were, however, some notable absences, including Jungheinrich and Linde.

IMHX event director Rob Fisher is delighted that so many exhibitors have hailed IMHX 2019 as a success - praising the excellent quality of attendees, the high level of engagement, and the quantity of new leads and orders taken over the four days of the event.

"IMHX is a ‘must-attend’ show for anyone who needs to keep up-to-date with the latest innovations, solutions and insights that are shaping modern intralogistics," he adds.

"The aisles were busy with buyers ready to do business and many of our exhibitors have already reported significant deals and orders.

"There was a great range of new products and technologies on display, which provided a real buzz and illustrates how the intralogistics sector is constantly innovating and evolving," he notes.

Organisers are hoping to capitalise on the growth of the industry by increasing the frequency of the show, as reported previously.

The next IMHX takes place at the NEC on 14 - 16 September 2021.

"The feeling among BITA members and other key stakeholders is that the change to a biennial cycle will better suit the sourcing and procurement demands of the show’s visitors and provide exhibitors with enhanced opportunities to engage with key customers and connect with prospective new ones," says James Clark, secretary general of BITA (the British Industrial Truck Association) which owns the show in partnership with Informa Markets.
