MHL Show offers mini booths at mini prices

THE exhibitor line-up at MHL 11 – New Zealand’s materials handling, warehousing and logistics trade show – is looking strong as stands continue to fill fast and visitor registrations increase.
As the ‘three months to go’ milestone rolls by, the organisers have increased the number of smaller sized stands available to potential exhibitors
“There are still a few good sites available” says sales manager, Brian Simpson, “but if you are considering exhibiting, now is the time to act to avoid disappointment.”
Over 70 materials handling, warehousing, logistics and technology suppliers representing international and local firms will be exhibiting, demonstrating and discussing the latest technology. Not only does MHL deliver a world class trade show, but this year, visitors will also have access to a number of exhibitor workshops and industry seminars.
One repeat exhibitor, Dematic on stand 257, a global leader in intelligent logistics and materials handling solutions, will amaze crowds with its voice-directed computing technology and new supply chain software, allowing SMEs to integrate voice-directed computing into their warehouses utilising their current system.
Secure A Load on stand 237, a specialist in cargo handling and load restraint systems, will prove the advantages of investing a little to reduce theft and make the transport and handling of materials safer.
Other exhibitors sure to impress with high quality seminars and workshops include Crown NZ on stand 249, Pocket Solutions on stands 241 and 243 (mobile computing and automated data capture solutions), and ride-on industrial cleaning company, KP Sweeping, on stand 221. 
MHL 11 will maintain an innovative and futuristic focus for which it has earned a reputation, with the Kerrect Interlogic interactive theatre wowing audiences for another year. While the organisers are still reluctant to give too much away, the theme of the interactive theatre is likely to be ‘The Next Evolution in Logistics’. Repeat exhibitor, Power Save Light Company, is once again on board to assist with the lighting for the interactive theatre as well as showcasing all of its energy efficient, cost saving, industrial and commercial lights and fittings on stand 248.
Other local materials handling, warehousing, logistics and freight transport firms that have signed up to exhibit in the last week include GS1 on stand 229 – the New Zealand arm behind the only global system for bar coding, and for standardised identification of products, assets, services, places and organisations.
Independent Verification Services on stand 213 are experts in NZ’s biosecurity system, regulations and business requirements and is a new training provider for the National Certificate of Freight Forwarding.
Running alongside MHL 2011 is The National Safety Show 2011, New Zealand’s largest dedicated workplace health and safety event. MHL and The National Safety Show will be held in pavilions one and two at the ASB Showgrounds in Greenlane Auckland on 21 and 22 September.
