SMART Expo, the national event for professionals in supply chain and logistics, was held for the first time in Melbourne this year – and the move proved a great success.
Organisers reported strong attendance and positive feedback from exhibitors.
The two-day show attracted more than 1,300 supply chain and logistics professionals who viewed the latest innovation in hardware and software.
For the first time SMART Expo and SMART Supply Chain and Logistics Conference, were co-located with National Manufacturing Week (NMW) and Safety First Conference & Expo.
“This resulted in increased visitor numbers across the manufacturing and safety sectors, exposing Smart exhibitors to a new audience of engineers, as well as professionals in the digital and sustainable manufacturing sectors,” said Simon Cooper, Managing Director of Interpoint Events – the expo organiser.
SMART Expo again received strong industry support for the event, with 60 exhibitors and sponsors on the show floor. SMART exhibitors enjoyed the opportunity to demonstrate their latest product lines and services to a targeted audience of decision makers.
Rod le Fevre, Global Sales Manager for Microlistics had a positive experience with a large number of people visiting their display resulting in many “realistic” and potential sales leads.
“The SMART Expo is certainly now on the Microlistics trade show calendar list for the future,” Mr le Fevre said.
Elliott Golten at Myfreight said the SMART expo was the perfect platform to showcase Myfreight,™ Australia’s leading freight management system.
“As a sponsor we experienced an increase in brand exposure that resulted in a significant number of new relationships with industry professionals, Mr Golten said. “It gave us the opportunity to present Myfreight™ and demonstrate how we can relieve the stress of freight management across a wide range of industries.”
With changing methodologies and trends in the last two years, the 13th edition of the event continues to highlight how to make processes smarter and more efficient.
This year, Smart Expo saw exhibitors showing ways to adopt agile global supply chain models, as well as improve techniques in sales and operations planning. The human factor was also at the fore, and visitors had the opportunity to learn about generational changes, leadership and safety.
The new networking lounges on the show floor facilitated additional networking opportunities for Smart expo visitors, allowing them to discuss trends, see new products, learn about the latest technology, as well as explore new business opportunities.
Dates and the location for SMART Expo 2017 will be announced soon.
