A first-of-its-kind exhibition dedicated to sustainable practices and processes in the supply chain and logistics industry is coming to Halls 6 & 7 of the NEC Birmingham in 2024!
As environmental issues become increasingly important to consumer and business owners across all sectors, there is growing demand for supply chains to adopt more sustainable approaches, become net zero and adopt effective ESG strategies. Thus, the Sustainable Supply Chain Exhibition will offer a focused environment for logistics, supply chain, and sustainability professionals to share ideas, offer solutions and help each other on their sustainability journeys.
Attendees to this first-of-its-kind exhibition will learn how they can ‘go green’ throughout their whole supply chain by seeing the very latest and next-generation sustainable solutions live and in person, showcased by 350+ exhibitors. Indeed, visitors will discover innovations in packaging, last-mile delivery, warehouse and facilities management, distribution, automation, industrial property, software, order fulfilment, shipping, and more! And they won’t just hear about them, the Sustainable Supply Chain Exhibition will feature live product demonstrations and workshops so that visitors can walk away with the best possible knowledge on their next investment.
The event’s organiser, Akabo Media, already produces the pioneering Sustainable Supply Chain Conference and the long-running Supply Chain Conference and Supply Chain Excellence Awards. This brand-new exhibition further demonstrates the company’s dedication to demonstrating to professionals that supply-chain decarbonisation – albeit a complex challenge – is a huge untapped opportunity that can benefit the bottom line as well as people and the planet.
The Sustainable Supply Chain Exhibition will be supported by Akabo Media’s industry-leading Logistics Manager Magazine – the UK supply-chain industry’s only monthly publication. Logistics Manager Editor Michelle Mooney said: “Delegates at this year’s Sustainable Supply Chain Conference made it clear that they want to see sustainable products and solutions in person. Whether these innovations help them with their need for visibility or to deliver in the last mile, our audience of senior supply chain professionals wants a deeper understanding of how suppliers can help them on their path to decarbonisation.
“We also learned from the conference that supply chain professionals have a strong desire to network and gain insight into how other companies are overcoming similar sustainability challenges to theirs. This exhibition will offer a productive environment for these professionals to do exactly that on a mass scale.”
Another leading publication supporting the event is Akabo Media’s City Transport & Traffic Innovation Magazine, which reports on the latest technologies enabling the sustainable movement of people, goods and materials through urban environments. John Thornton, Editor of City Transport & Traffic Innovation, said: “The transportation part of the logistics and supply chain industry produces a larger carbon footprint than any other and this is creating demand for eco-friendly urban mobility solutions that contribute to a greener supply chain. Electrification, decarbonisation, future fuels and hybridisation will all play vital roles in top brands adopting cleaner transportation and supply chain practices.”
The Sustainable Supply Chain Exhibition will also involve environmental-focused non-profits, government bodies, and industry associations so that visiting brands receive a wider understanding of how these organisations can support them on their path to decarbonisation.
What’s more, the Sustainable Supply Chain Exhibition will take place alongside IntraLogisteX – the UK’s premier materials handling exhibition – and Robotics and Automation – the UK’s largest exhibition dedicated to these technologies – to form the Logistics, Supply Chain and Automation Expo.
The synergy of the three shows is obvious, with visitors able to discover the latest innovations for every step of the logistics and supply chain process. The combined event will be a one-stop shop for all logistics needs, showcasing all current and future technologies needed to improve operations.
All three exhibitions will take place in Halls 6 & 7 of the NEC Birmingham on 19-20 March 2024. Visitors who register for any of the events will be able to access all three exhibitions with one ticket. The co-location of all three events also means an immediate gain in the number of exhibiting companies and qualifying professional visitors, with more than 8,000 buyers expected!
And if that wasn’t enough, the Sustainable Supply Chain Exhibition will provide a truly world-class conference programme featuring more than 60 expert speakers over two days and offering visitors the opportunity to learn how the latest developments in supply chain decarbonisation can influence their bottom line.
