Multimodal moved to March 2021

[ June 19, 2020   //   ]

The Multimodal 2020 show and conference has been postponed again, to 23-25 March, 2021, at the Birmingham NEC. The move follows advice from Public Health England and the UK government.

The event was originally planned for June 2020 and was then postponed to November 2020, due to the Covid-129 crisis.
However, organisers Clarion Events are planning some online events to maintain continuity and bridge the gap between now and next spring.
Clarion’s logistics portfolio director, Robert Jervis, said: “Whilst we are disappointed to make this decision, we have to place the safety of our customers, attendees, staff and suppliers at the forefront of our thinking, bearing in mind both governmental directions and general public health advice.

“Having canvassed the opinions of a large sample of visitors and exhibitors, it was clear that the pragmatic approach is to further postpone the event to 2021.”
Multimodal will be launching a series of alternative initiatives and digital activities – including online webinars, with the first taking place on 15 July, followed by others from September onwards.
The Multimodal website will also be upgraded with additional content, as well as networking opportunities for individuals to participate in discussions on topical issues.

Multimodal has also launched a 30Under30 initiative in association with Freight Business Journal. This is an opportunity for individuals under the age of 30 that are working in any aspect of the freight logistics and supply chain industry in the UK and Ireland to gain recognition as rising stars and future leaders.
Nominations are open now and can be made on the Multimodal website
