This year, B&B Attachments will return to UK exhibitions.

“Following a long break, exhibitions and trade shows are back, and they are better than ever,” commented Mike Barton, Managing Director of the UK-based forklift attachment manufacturer. “After a difficult couple of years for everyone, exhibitions are more important than ever for the materials handling industry.

“The collective and physical effect that exhibitions have is something that cannot be replicated by virtual events. There is a significant value in experiencing face to face meetings, product innovations and thought leadership seminars, together as an industry.”

B&B has already exhibited at the UK Concrete Show and the Design & Build Show in Oman, where the company showcased its brick and block handling attachments. It also attended LogiMat in Stuttgart on the stand of handling solutions partner, KAUP.

IMHX 2022 is next on the list. The show will open for business at the NEC Birmingham on 6-8 September 2022 and will present the developments that are reshaping the post-pandemic global logistics industry.

Mr Barton continued: “For us, IMHX is a must-attend event; we’ve been to every edition since B&B Attachments was established over 40 years ago. Future technology will be a central focus on B&B’s stand this year. This will include the latest forklift truck attachment innovations in electric handling, smart load control systems and brand-new de-palletising solutions.”

The manufacturer will also be exhibiting at Bauma on 24-30 October this year. Housing 200,000 m2 of indoor space and 400,000 m2 outdoor, to more than 3,000 exhibitors, from around 60 countries. Bauma is the world’s leading trade fair for construction machinery, building materials and construction equipment.

“Bauma provides the ideal platform to showcase our heavy duty and custom handling solutions for the construction market,” added Mr Barton. “It’s the biggest construction exhibition in the world and the ideal meeting place for those key international contacts.”
