A number of automated system suppliers have booked stands at the next International Materials Handling Exhibition (IMHX) in 2010 in the UK.
Over 70% of floor space has been sold despite the economic climate.
Rob Fisher, IMHX event director, says leading automated solution providers Dematic, Knapp, SDI Group, SSI Schaefer, E & K Automation, Kasto, Industore and PSB have confirmed they will exhibit.
Fisher says IMHX is negotiating with several other key automation firms.
The exhibition will be held from 2 to 5 March 2010 at the NEC in Birmingham and will highlight thousands of products and services under the slogan 'Inspiring Materials Handling eXcellence'.
David James, managing director of Knapp UK Ltd, says that because IMHX only takes place once every three years, it is a key consideration in the company's marketing plans. "It is undoubtedly the biggest UK materials handling show, in terms of footfall and exposure."
Phil Makowski, marketing manager for Dematic, says events such as IMHX are the ideal opportunity to showcase the company's products to a wider audience.
Other recent exhibitors to sign up for IMHX 2010 include Crown, Still Material Handling, Norco TBM, Ban-Air, ICEM, Ravas, Eblo Seating, Rehig Pacific and Big Ass Fans.
The event will feature materials handling equipment, health and safety systems, software solutions, racking and shelving, storage systems and pallets and palletising.
