Contact the Forkliftaction team
The line between enough and too much is a thin one, and in the case of the world’s leading materials handling event, the limit is four days. From the 2016 trade show, CeMAT will lose a day from its current five-day run. And many say that’s a good thing. Indeed, five days is a long time out of the office for exhibitors - even more so when they need to be there a day early to set up. For visitors, especially those travelling long distances, the loss of an exhibition day may be a bit of an inconvenience, with less flexibility among the remaining show times. But, you can’t please all the people all of the time, and the new schedule seems to be a reasonable compromise.
And on the CeMAT theme, a big thanks from the large Forkliftaction.com team in Hannover to all who visited the stand and who showed warm hospitality when our guys were walking the floor. And thanks to those who hosted the team at parties and celebrations after the busy days in the exhibition halls. To new friends and old, Auf Wiedersehen.
