Important: Multimodal 2021 Information Update

As a consequence of the ongoing impact of the COVID-19 (coronavirus) pandemic, Multimodal 2020 will now be held at The NEC, Birmingham on 22-24 June 2021.  

The Multimodal Team will be in touch directly with our exhibitors, sponsors and visitors in relation to this postponement and to answer any questions.  There will be further communication to these groups over the coming days and weeks as we aim to facilitate a smooth transition to the new dates for everyone involved.

Please be assured that we are continuing to closely monitor the latest public health and government advice with regard to COVID-19 (coronavirus) and are carefully adhering to their directions. Our absolute priority is to safeguard the health and welfare of all those involved in our events.

We are looking forward to the forthcoming events and as show organisers are committed to creating safe environments to protect exhibitors, visitors, contractors and our staff to ensure we can run enjoyable and successful events for all in 2020. In line with government and local authority guidance, as well as the UK exhibition industry All Secure Standard document we are implementing extensive measures in response to COVID-19 and will constantly be reviewed in line with current guidelines.

Thank you for your ongoing support and understanding.

Multimodal 2021 celebrates fourteen years of putting shippers, retailers, manufacturers, wholesalers, importers and exporters in front of exhibitors who offer the latest logistics and supply chain solutions.   Multimodal is firmly established as the UK, Ireland and Northern Europe’s premier freight transport, logistics and supply chain management event.   

Whether you are a 3PL, BCO, shipping line, logistics provider, haulier, pallet network, port or warehouse owner, Multimodal offers a unique opportunity to make valuable face to face contact with new prospects and existing companies.   ​Year on year, shippers and cargo owners attend to improve their businesses; by finding ways of moving their products more efficiently and by meeting new suppliers

Multimodal represents every logistics sector under one roof, and is characterised by key vertical sectors, including manufacturing, retail, agribusiness, chemical, automotive, electronics, FMCG, food & drink, fashion, pharmaceuticals, construction, aerospace, energy, real estate, recycling, paper/print and perishables, amongst others, whilst horizontally, the show covers all modes of transportation, including sea, road, rail, air and inland waterways.

This matrix design makes Multimodal incredibly valuable and accessible for shippers - whilst also affording them the opportunity to successfully meet and network with peers from other sectors, which is another key reason for their attendance.

This attendance next year will be bolstered by brand new initiatives:

Multimodal Networking

Match-making service to connect shippers – our VIP visitors – to each other and to our exhibitors

We will be introducing a bespoke match-making service to connect shippers – our VIP visitors – to each other and to our exhibitors. This will be closed programme available only to exhibitors and to bona fide VIP visitors, to add real value to stand-holders and sponsors.

Bespoke seminar content reflecting vertical markets

The revamped conference programme will feature a host of vertical half day seminars that reflect shipper interests.  These free-of-charge sessions will also allow suppliers to these sectors to participate in lively debate.

A new attraction at Multimodal 2021 will be the Freight Forwarders Village, designed to provide a marketplace for freight forwarders to showcase the products and services they offer in a simple and cost effective way.
Lastly – we will be further upgrading our day three offering - addressing training, recruitment and the skills gap which are major threats to the success of many companies, with a major focus on apprenticeships, training, re/upskilling, education and recruitment with seminars and initiatives specific to this sector.

Multimodal 2021 will also feature two amazing networking events:-

The Multimodal Awards -  the industry's recognition of the amazing talent within all sectors of transport and logistics.  Hosted by Kevin Keegan, the event is a great place to network and enjoy a great evening amongst fellow professionals.

The Multimodal Mixer - sponsored by Forth Ports -  join us for our famous get-together for both visitors and exhibitors - in a relaxed informal atmosphere.
