LogiMAT presents good numbers
Good results for the LogiMAT 2017: The 15th International trade fair for distribution, materials handling and information flow, broke all records in terms of exhibitor and visitor numbers and exhibition space.
LogiMAT 2017 closed with the best result in the 15-year history, states the organizer: More exhibitors than ever before, maximum space take-up at the Stuttgart exhibition centre and a stampede of visitors: over 50,000 logistics experts crowded into the exhibition halls. Peter Kazander, Managing Director of EUROEXPO Messe- und Kongress-GmbH, Munich emphasised in particular the high demand from international exhibitors: “In view of the many international difficulties and uncertainties for trade and business that we are experiencing at present, the presence of exhibitors from 36 countries – four more than in 2016 – was not something we took for granted.”
Already in 2016 the show´s management was able to take up all the available space at the exhibition centre with this international intralogistics trade fair. According to the organizer, this year, in order to do justice to the ever growing interest from exhibitors, the exhibition management made available an additional 3,000 square metres (net) of exhibition space, for example in the East Entrance area and on the gallery between Hall 1 and Hall 3. Nevertheless as early as autumn last year, the eight halls at the exhibition centre for LogiMAT 2017 were fully booked, says the fair management. Next year the new hall at the Stuttgart exhibition centre – Hall 10 – will provide LogiMAT with a further approx. 15,000 square metres of space. Also enjoying a further rise in exhibitor and visitor interest was the competence platform TradeWorld, which was held as part of LogiMAT for the fourth time. It focuses on the entire process chain in trade and commerce, gathering together the know-how about all the processes concerned with digital trade, now and in the future. The next LogiMAT takes place from 20 to 22 June 2017, in Nanjing, China. LogiMAT 2018 in Stuttgart takes place from 13 to 15 March 2018.
