Logistics UK’s highly anticipated Future Logistics Conference at ITT Hub has moved to summer 2021, to allow for a safe and accessible experience in line with current government restrictions on large scale gatherings.
Now taking place between 30th June – 1st July 2021 at Farnborough International Exhibition and Conference Centre as part of the inaugural ITT Hub event, the Future Logistics Conference will be a unique opportunity to explore the forces set to shape the logistics sector, as David Wells, Chief Executive of Logistics UK explains:
“The logistics industry is changing faster than many of us appreciate, with advancing technology converging with challenges such as climate change and the COVID-19 pandemic to reshape the nature of future UK and global operations.
“Ensuring the safety and contentment of our visitors, exhibitors and speakers is our top priority, which is why we, in conjunction with Binswood Media – the organisers of ITT Hub – have made the difficult decision to postpone the event from spring to the summer months.
“This will help to ensure we can deliver an enhanced, safe experience for all involved. I would like to thank everyone for their patience and understanding.”
The conference’s content streams will examine the issues set to challenge the logistics industry of the future including future business strategies, future communities, future data and future vehicles.
The first British astronaut to visit the International Space Station, Tim Peake, will be headlining the conference with a session identifying areas where inspiration from space could provide solutions for 21st century logistics challenges.
