Apart from all this, LogiMAT 2019 will also host 30 Trade Forums to address the subject of ‘intralogistics’ in today’s market scenario along with its latest trends. Each of the sessions will be spearheaded by experts from the business and academic communities. Some of the areas that will be highlighted in the context of intralogistics are sustainability, innovation, autonomous transports, artificial intelligence (AI), and robotics.
The Innovations Forums is another segment at the fair which will hold live product demonstrations. Via this platform, companies can reach out to a greater audience and explain the specialised functionalities of their products and solutions. It is interesting to note that more than 40 presentations will be held at this forum.
The Events section will also present live demos of practical solutions in relation to the current challenges of the industry. Focusing on the best practices in ‘securing loads’ and ‘warehouse logistics’, the exhibitors will also share information on the measures to be undertaken by market players in order to optimise their intralogistics processes. ‘Innovation Made in Germany’ is a special area located in Hall 2 that will welcome start-ups to showcase their latest work in distribution, material flow, and software/IT to industry players.
