Inside Contact the Forkliftaction team
We read this week about a flurry of industry events in the US in coming weeks, but the team at is also working hard to prepare for the giant industry showcase, CeMAT 2011 in Hannover. Of course, this isn’t’s first visit to the industry’s premier event, and we will be there in force, with an exhibition booth and an editorial presence. So if you’re planning to attend the May event, set aside a few minutes to come and visit us - and if you’re a supplier with a story to tell, make sure you contact us ahead of time so we can schedule an interview. In the meanwhile, anyone attending ProMat in Chicago in a couple of weeks, please look out for our US bureau chief, Roger Renstrom.
