The recently launched Total Logistics North has taken the market by storm. Seventeen companies have already committed, and many more are on the verge of committing, to participate in the new, cost-effective exhibition that will put suppliers of the complete range of logistics products, systems and services face-to-face with senior supply chain professionals responsible for making the key buying decisions.
The event is being organised by Richard Milbourn, founder partner of Logistics Manager magazine and the Logistics Link series of exhibitions, and will be held on the 28 and 29 September 2011 at Doncaster Racecourse. It will very much live up to its ‘Total’ name by being a broad based exhibition featuring the latest products, systems and services utilised in the supply and movement of goods and materials from sourcing through all stages of production, packaging, storage, handling and distribution to end users.
Psion Teklogix, Belgravium, Proteus Software, Open Business Solutions, Shrinkfast, Invest In Doncaster, Logistics Leaders Network, Lighthouse and Lutterworth Ecolighting are among the market leading companies backing Total Logistics North.
Total Logistics North will set new standards of visitor interest by creating a one-stop-shop where logistics professionals can attend seminars, see demonstrations and meet suppliers representing hundreds of products and solutions. New initiatives include site visits to nearby, state-of-the-art distribution parks where visitors can see for themselves how leading companies have improved their logistics operations. The Invest In Doncaster Workshop that will look at developments in logistics unique to the region such as Rossington Inland Port and the Logistics Leaders Network Pavilion will provide debate and discussion on key issues affecting senior supply chain professionals.
Milbourn says, “The initial response to the launch has been fantastic, but of utmost importance the promises of on-going support has been extremely gratifying. I think that it proves that Total Logistics North concept is the right show, at the right time, in the right venue and has all the ingredients in place to make it a great proposition for visitors and exhibitors alike.”
Doncaster Racecourse re-opened as a new events venue in 2007 following a £34m development and is one of the best state-of-the art exhibition and conference facilities for the Midlands and North. It is perfectly located in the heart of the UK motorway network with the M18, A1(M) and M180 providing eight key junctions within the Borough, and easy access to the M62 and M1. Doncaster also has excellent rail links from Scotland, the Midlands and North, and London which is only 90 minutes away by train from Kings Cross.
Total Logistics North will utilise both indoor and outdoor space at Doncaster Racecourse. The 3,400 sq m indoor Lazarus Exhibition Hall will be used to demonstrate the latest IT and warehouse and distribution software systems; materials handling equipment, storage and packaging systems. The outdoor display and event space, adjacent to a free parking area for 3,000 cars, will be used as a commercial vehicle park to display the latest vehicles and distribution solutions.
A comprehensive marketing and promotional programme will be implemented to support Total Logistics North and ensure a high class event that delivers a real ROI for exhibitors. It will be an event that will transform marketing and sales operations by providing the right sales contacts at the right price. Exhibition space costs from as little as £190 per sq m if booked by the early bird discount deadline of 28th February 2011.
Milbourn is confident that whatever product, service or system you are marketing then Total Logistics North will help you to promote and sell it better.
