Inside Contact the Forkliftaction team
It will be a busy couple of months ahead for the industry, starting with LogiMAT, currently under way in Stuttgart, Germany. The 16th International Trade Fair for Intralogistics Solutions and Process Management runs until 15 March.
Next up is MODEX 2018, from April 9-12 in Atlanta, GA, United States. The US event will include over 850 exhibitors and more than 100 education sessions, and Forkliftaction News' editor will be following the action. When he's not at sessions or visiting booths, you'll find him at B2370.
And then, from April 23-27, it's CeMAT 2018 in Hannover. If you're planning to attend that one, be sure to head over to the Forkliftaction booth, Hall 26, Stand H07, to meet some of the team.
