MHL Expo returns to Auckland

XPO Exhibitions, NZ’s largest trade show organiser and the proud new owners of the Materials Handling & Logistics Expo (MHL) are excited about it’s return to Auckland’s ASB Showgrounds from the 11-13 October 2016. This year’s event is set be the biggest in it’s history as MHL co-locates with Foodtech Packtech (FTPT) New Zealand’s premier event for the food & beverage and packaging technology industries.

MHL has traditionally been very strong in the Materials Handling side of things but this year’s show has an equally strong focus on logistics solutions for business – and it’s expected to draw strong numbers.

“FTPT caters to a growing attendance of many 1000s of food manufacturers across it’s halls and the vast majority of those businesses are looking for materials handling and logistics solutions – so the crossover synergies of co-locating MHL and FTPT shows are strong . Add to that many 1000s of other industry attendees who will be invited (ranging from importers to general manufacturers) across XPO’s other shows; and you’ve got the markings for a far ‘Bigger and Better’ MHL show for exhibitors and visitors” says Tony Waite XPO Exhibitions Sales & Events Director. “Exhibitors are able to reach a far greater pool of quality visitors and potential customers and visitors will be able to see everything under one roof.”

MHL and FTPT will be across 3 main halls with the combined presence of 200 leading national and international exhibiting companies showcasing the freshest ideas, latest technologies and the newest developments entering the materials handling, supply chain, transport, logistic, food and packaging industries.

Craig Landon General Manager of Dexion is excited about the opportunity to present a showcase of products and services at MHL Expo,“No less than 8 new products from Dexion will be launched including the latest in new satellite systems and an all new approach to industrial storage solutions.”

In addition, XPO has just confirmed a partnership with the Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport (CILT). CILT is a professional membership organisation providing leadership, mentoring and networking opportunities to people working in the supply chain sector. At this year’s event CILT will drive an extensive learning and development seminar program. Both members and non-members of CILT will have the opportunity to engage with the CILT team on site sharing knowledge on the industry’s current trends, developments and technologies.

An estimated 4,000+ industry professionals will be in attendance across the 3 days to explore new equipment, services and innovations and to meet face to face with the most significant industry suppliers and specialists from all over the world, it’s an event not to be missed.

With 200+ exhibitors showcasing the very latest innovations and technologies, 3 days of industry lead seminars, special features, show specials from event partners such as Warehouse Stationery, visitor prizes, including the chance to win a brand new Ford and exclusive VIP networking events the MHL Expo is guaranteed to inform, educate and excite all those who attend.
