Australia’s premier materials handling and warehousing Exhibition, MATEX, will make a return to Sydney in 2008 and will be held 15 -17 April, Sydney Showgrounds, Sydney Olympic Park.
With consultation from the industry and after five years co-located with National Manufacturing Week, the decision was made to move away from the present format with National Manufacturing Week and again become a stand alone event.
Nicholas Tossman, Event Director of MATEX says the move has created an extremely positive response from the Industry.
“Matex 2008 will be held over three day’s instead of the shows previous four day’s with NMW, bringing it back to its original time period,” he says.
“It will be a new vibrant Event that is more vertical, focusing one of the largest growing industry sectors in Australia, the warehousing and logistics sector.”
“We would like to welcome the Supply Chain Logistics Association Australia (SCLAA) as the Official Association for MATEX 2008 and for their effort in organising the two- day 2008 SCLAA Conference to be held on the first two days of the Event,” Tossman says.
“In addition to the Conference the SCLAA will be organising the Fork Lift Drivers Championship, where the final will be held at MATEX on the 17th April 2008 on a specially constructed course.”
“MATEX 2008 exhibition space is filling fast, with excellent support coming from leading Australian Materials Handling Company’s eager to showcase their products and equipment to a highly targeted visitor audience.”
