Now in its eleventh year, Multimodal is the UK and Ireland’s premier freight transport, logistics and supply chain management event.
Multimodal represents every logistics sector under one roof, making it a unique and highly valued industry showcase.
Shippers and cargo owners attend to improve their businesses; by finding ways of moving their products more efficiently and by meeting new suppliers.
The event is characterised by key vertical sectors, including manufacturing, retail, agribusiness, chemical, automotive, electronics, FMCG, food & drink, fashion, pharmaceuticals, construction, aerospace, energy, real estate, recycling, paper/print and perishables, amongst others, whilst horizontally, the show covers all modes of transportation, including sea, road, rail, air and inland waterways.
This matrix design makes Multimodal incredibly valuable and accessible for shippers - whilst also affording them the opportunity to successfully meet and network with peers from other sectors, which is another key reason for their attendance.
Multimodal 2017 attracted 9,449 attendees.
Now in its tenth year, Multimodal 2017, which takes place from April 4-6 2017 at the Birmingham NEC, brings together logistics decision makers together with leading suppliers to network, grow business, and learn from the experts.
Multimodal 2016 was the biggest in the show’s history, with more than 9,000 logistics buyers visiting over 325 supply chain buyers at the free-to-attend show.
