MEGATRANS returns to Melbourne in 2020
Logistics and transport event MEGATRANS will be returning to the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre from 1–3 April 2020, after a successful debut in 2018.
Attended by senior leaders, decision-makers and business owners, the 2018 event was an opportunity for members of Australia’s supply chain and logistics industry to get together and discuss common concerns and developments. Many businesses used the event to launch new products, communicate with others in the industry and to network with delegates and exhibitors alike.
Feedback from both delegates and exhibitors indicated that MEGATRANS2018 was a well-needed event for the Australian logistics and supply chain industry, and that having the entire industry in one location for three days presented networking opportunities that have not previously been realised.
“[MEGATRANS] is different to any other show we have exhibited in that it is specific and targeted,” said Glenn Thornton, National Product and Brand Manager at sensor, networking and control systems supplier ifm. “The delegates are the right people who want to know how they can improve their processes.”
In 2020, MEGATRANS will showcase the latest in artificial intelligence (AI), robotics, automated racking, telematics and route optimisation, warehouse automation, intelligent fleet systems, blockchain, Internet of Things, big data and advanced analytics.
“We’re excited to announce the return of MEGATRANS,” said Show Director Simon Coburn. “Once again, we will connect all facets of the logistics and multimodal freight industry in one place — with an integrated exhibition, conference and social program. We look forward to showcasing the latest developments and innovations in one of Australia’s most important industries.”
For the first time, MEGATRANS2020 will also take place in conjunction with the Australian Bulk Handling Expo 2020 (BULK2020). The two events will be held side by side, with one ticket entry into both exhibitions.
