fd-logoVisitors to the Food & Drink Logistics Show at Birmingham’s NEC Hall 5 from 21-24 March 2010 will be impressed by the depth of real world experience available from both exhibitors and speakers.

The Food & Drink Logistics Show provides a unique and dedicated platform for suppliers to showcase their products to top-level decision makers from across the food and drink sectors. Visitors will see and hear about the latest products and services from a wide range of leading providers across wide-ranging sectors, including well-established specialists such as Apprise Consulting, LXE UK, Paragon Software, and SSI Schaeffer. And exhibitors in the UKWA Pavilion are also on the ‘must visit’ list.

Real world experience also underpins the Business Briefing Theatre presentations. On Sunday Frank Hasleden from Toyota Material Handling, with over 25 years in warehouse design and improvement, will share inside information on new European product launches that can transform order-picking efficiency. Tony Abouzolof will then explain how Syncron UK’s experience of successful supply chain innovation in organisations such as BAE Systems, JCB, and Electrolux can translate into business benefits for companies in the food and drink sector.

Developing people is essential for commercial progress, so what sort of skills and experience are required and how can they be developed? Between them Steve Agg, Chief Executive of the Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport (UK), and Chris Liddle from DLC Training have a wealth of relevant industry experience. So attend the Business Briefing Theatre at lunchtime on Monday or Wednesday to hear their points of view and understand how you can apply them in your own organisation.

Other highlights will include Julie Gartside of SKM Enviros describing her team’s work on carbon reduction on behalf of clients such as Coca-Cola and the Carbon Trust, and Steve Baker looking at new automated solutions from Dematic that maximise flexibility and reduce costs for multi-SKU orders. Tuesday’s audience will also hear food scientist Dr. Julian South from Campden BRI tackle the subject of food safety in the modern world.

The other live events will centre on the Showroom and The Hub. The Showroom is an exciting new area that provides a unique opportunity to see the latest innovations in transport and materials handling equipment including Toyota Material Handling, Isuzu Trucks, Fiat Professional and Gray & Adams.

The Hub is a central networking area allowing exhibitors and visitors alike to share current experience and knowledge and to discuss the realities of innovation. And to talk in depth with representatives of leading industry organisations CILT(UK), FSDF, and UKWA.

The Food & Drink Logistics Show will be co-located with Foodex, Baking Industry Exhibition, Food & Drink Expo, Convenience Retailing Show, Café+@CRS, Off Licence Show and IFFE to give visitors a complete overview of the food and drink supply chain under one roof.
