Multimodal face lift for 2015

Multimodal is ringing in the changes with a fresh logo, new web site, and an innovative registration system.

The UK and Ireland supply chain show is celebrating its eighth year with a new look and a registration system leveraging social media to boost networking.

"Multimodal is firmly established as the must-attend event for supply chain professionals," said Robert Jervis, Multimodal Director.

Multimodal 2015 takes place at the Birmingham NEC 28-30 April. Last year's show welcomed a record breaking 7100 visitors and over 290 exhibitors. Over 60 expert speakers took part in 25 workshops and panel debates.

"Our new look reflects our success story and also looks to the future as we embrace social media to help create even more business opportunities for visitors."

The exhibition, at the Birmingham NEC from the 28th to the 30th of April 2015, will also play host to a series of seminars and panel discussions tackling the latest trends and regulations.

Expert speakers from Waitrose, Sainsbury's, Network Rail, the Co-operative, and Lafarge, amongst others, will take to the stage to share their experiences.

Multimodal has once more teamed up with the Freight Transport Association (FTA) and the Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport (CILT) to create a programme of practical discussion and learning.

Topics will include omnichannel challenges, rail freight opportunities, reducing environmental impact, and modal shift, as well as container weighing regulations, financing the supply chain, and reducing warehouse costs.

An air freight-specific stream of presentations hosted by The Loadstar will look into issues from security at airports to facilities for perishables.

A full seminar programme will be available on Multimodal's new web site in the New Year.

Registration for the show, which is 85% sold out, will open in January.
