The supply chain industry is set to enjoy the best Multimodal event ever following an early surge in exhibition space bookings, visitor registrations and table reservations at the Awards ceremony.
Visitor demand for the exhibition has promoted organisers to open registration early, resulting in a 100% spike in bookings compared to the same time last year.
Multimodal 2023 will also be the UK’s largest logistics and transport industry event following a sharp rise in exhibition space bookings. The amount of square footage sold has already surpassed the total amount last year, and there are still four months to go before the event which takes place from 13 – 15 June.
Held at Birmingham’s NEC, Multimodal brings together businesses, thought leaders and associations from across the supply chain industry, with standout businesses and individuals recognised at its Awards ceremony. This year over 600 places for this prestigious evening have already been booked, breaking all previous records for the same point in time for previous years.
Delegates will benefit from several new features ahead of the event, including a new website which enables quicker registration and a more seamless browsing experience. Exhibitors and speakers have been taking advantage of a dedicated section online for templates which help announcements to be created and designed, plus enhanced profile updates.
The raft of improvements has been made as a result of visitor feedback, and year on year increases in the number of visitors and exhibitors attending the event from across the globe. In 2022 alone, overseas attendance increased by over 55%.
Commenting on the early spike in numbers for Multimodal 2023, Event Director Robert Jervis said: “Our data shows that each year Multimodal has grown, but the numbers for 2023 are unprecedented. There is a huge demand for the supply chain industry to view a range of service providers under one roof. Also, the chance to learn about new products and services that can help businesses grow, as well as technological advances and sustainability initiatives at the same exhibition is key.
The NEC provides a functional space for the event, which tempts those involved in the logistics, supply chain and shipping sectors to meet and share best practices. We are in the final stages of researching our conference programme, with details of themes and speakers due to be announced shortly.”
Nominations are now open for the Multimodal 2023 Awards for companies to select their best in sector, with ticket sales for the evening almost at sell out point.
