Details of a contractual agreement that would allow Deutsche Messe to expand its tradeshow offerings outside of Germany were met on Tuesday. Deutsche Messe announced it will be staging an intralogistics fair for the first time from May 19-23, 2015 in Milan, Italy.
Intralogistica Italia will be a part of packaging trade fair Ipack-Ima, where it will showcase warehouse and factory equipment, packaging and assembly systems, loading equipment, complete logistics systems, traffic engineering, logistics software, transport logistics services and logistics services, according to Deutsche Messe.
"This strategically important collaboration will enable us to enter a new market and offer our customers a regional trade show in the important Italian intralogistics market," said Andreas Gruchow, member of the Managing Board for Deutsche Messe. "Intralogistica Italia is the perfect complement to Ipack-Ima. This will generate excellent synergies for all those involved."
"Intralogistica closes a gap in the Italian trade fair market and will play an important role for the Italian logistics sector, which in turn is strategically important to our country's industrial development," said Guido Corbella, managing director for Ipack-Ima.
