The Automated Material Handling Systems Association (AMHSA) has revealed plans to hold another of its successful ‘symposium’ events in May next year.
Taking place on Wednesday 2 May 2012 at Silverstone racetrack, the symposium – entitled ‘Future Material Handling – Getting on track to win’ – will bring together supply chain directors and senior management to discuss the likely developments in material handling over the next five years and the key role that automation and software will play.
Heading up an impressive roll call of speakers will be Lord Digby Jones, formerly Director General of the CBI and Minister of UK Trade & Investment. Also taking the podium to share their invaluable experience will be Tom Hebbert, Supply Chain System and Development Director (UK and Ireland) at Tesco; Jason Keegan, Head of General Merchandise Logistics at Marks and Spencer; Brian McDill, Solutions and Operational Director at Norbert Dentressangle; Professor David Menachof of Hull University Business School; and Mike Vernon of AMHSA.
Located at the home of British motorsport, near to Towcester, the venue for the symposium will be the brand-new Silverstone Wing, which features state-of-the-art conference facilities. The ‘early bird’ delegate rate of £85 includes refreshments and a buffet lunch, plus the chance to win a driving experience at the legendary race circuit.
