UK warehousing conference details

Solihull, UK: The United Kingdom Warehousing Association (UKWA)  will hold its fifth in the Warehousing Futures series of networking conferences and exhibitions at St John’s Hotel, Solihull, on 29-30 October 2012.

The theme is Success in Challenging Times and the conference speaker programme will include supply chain practitioners as well as personnel from the third party logistics industry and suppliers to the sector.

“Warehousing Futures 2012 will showcase winning warehousing strategies, best practice and innovation. The event is an opportunity to relay positive news against a background of difficult UK, Continental European and Global marketplaces,” says Roger Williams, chief executive, UKWA.

“Despite the economic situation, there are a large number of successes to report on and Warehousing Futures will give a platform  for the MD’s and CEO’s of major logistics service specialists, retailers and manufacturers to present their successes to an audience of logistics professionals,” he says.

The event will follow a similar format to previous years with a networking dinner on the evening of 29th October, followed by a one day conference. A small exhibition featuring some of the leading suppliers of products and services to the warehousing sector will run alongside the conference to ensure that delegates are able to derive  maximum benefit from their time at the event.

The cost of attending Warehousing Futures 2012 as a full delegate – which includes a place at the networking dinner, overnight accommodation at the St John’s Swallow Hotel and attendance to the full conference including lunch, coffees and delegate information pack – is £240.00 plus vat.  A day delegate package priced at £140.00 plus vat is available. Special rates are available to UKWA members.
