​​​​​​Materials Handling Middle East 2017 is the only dedicated show in the region for professionals from every facet of the warehousing, supply chain and Intralogistics sector. From forklifts and lifting equipment to automation, the show presents solutions for all warehousing requirements for three days from 11 to 13 September.​

Materials Handling Middle East pays special attention to six important and dynamic sectors (Logistics and Supply Chain, Retail, FMCG, Automotive, Oil and Gas, and Pharmaceuticals), and gives visitors an opportunity to create and establish business relationships, see the latest trends and developments in the supply chain industry, test the latest products and technologies, all while showcasing products and solutions that improve their productivity and efficiency.

In 2015, the event opened 15% larger than the previous edition and welcomed 4,386 trade visitors from 62 countries, featuring over 250 brands, key industry players, large companies making their debut, product demonstration areas and a highly regarded conference, making it a highly anticipated exhibitor for the upcoming edition. It also launched Forklift Operator Of The Year, a competition for forklift operators which promotes safety and efficiency in the warehouse.

With several key exhibitors including Span, Al Samaani, Advansys ESC and RFUFCO confirming their participation for this year, Materials Handling Middle East is set to be even bigger, with cutting-edge product innovation, automated warehouse solutions and even robotics of the materials handling industry.

As the event happens only once every two years, these three days are the most important in the intralogistics sector in the region. With the industry constantly striving to change and become more effective, attendance is important to stay ahead of the curve. Entry is free of charge for trade visitors.
