A welcome return
Transpotec, the leading industry trade fair for transport and logistics, returns to Veronafiere from the 22nd to 25th of February 2017. The event, organised by Fiera Milano, offers innovative products and effective solutions in this sector for transport experts, heads of logistics, fleet owners, large-scale distribution, courier firms and owners of small businesses. It represents a unique opportunity, allowing all professionals in the supply chain to share their experiences, meet international buyers and open up new markets, as well as offering training opportunities and entertainment.
This ever-expanding, biennial event promises to be even bigger and better than the successful 2015 Transpotec, which attracted 24,107 visitors to 260 exhibitors.
“We are absolutely delighted with this edition of Transpotec – it’s a clear sign that our efforts over the past few years have been more than worthwhile,” said Giuseppe Garri, Exhibition Manager. “Our plan has been crystal clear right from the word go. We intend to work alongside exhibitors, sharing their goals and, above all, ensure that the fair is a business opportunity that will generate new contacts, drive growth and raise awareness on the market as to potential future directions.”
Reason 1. Contacts
Transpotec is tailor-made for exhibitors to showcase their business, whatever area of the industry or size of their operation. There are opportunities to present and add value to products and services, to compare notes and discuss shared strategies with other trade professionals from the supply chain, to meet international buyers and penetrate new markets.
The exhibition is a strategic tool for promoting internationalisation: not only does it attract foreign visitors, but companies attending the show who are keen to increase their exports can meet an ever-greater number of invited potential foreign investors.
Reason 2. Innovation – see tomorrow, today!
Transpotec continues to focus on the future and features the latest innovative products and technical proposals, in terms of vehicles and business solutions. From trucks and trailers to fuel sources and security software, there will be a huge array of specialist services and consultants present.
As well as getting up to date, visitors will also be able to personally test drive the latest models of vehicles on the market as a route has been designed to offer real driving conditions and provide hands-on experience.
Reason 3. Events and learning
There will be plenty of training opportunities and updates in the form of conferences, meetings, workshops and demonstrations, organised by the top companies, experts and associations in the sector. Special events and areas will further enrich the fair:
Tracky Village – this arena is packed with business-driven events and training opportunities, from insurance services to products for vehicle maintenance and a great deal else besides.
Second-hands Vehicles Area – a direct chance to find and buy guaranteed, high-quality used vehicles at the most attractive prices.
Aftermarket Village – this new area is dedicated to truck components and accessories.
Virtual vehicles 360° – a chance to experience virtual reality and learn about the secrets of commercial and industrial vehicles.
Special awards – for journalism, communications managers, transport companies and drivers; Sustainable Truck of the Year for eco-friendly innovation and efficiency; and the Stars of the Transport Award given to the most significant, ground-breaking and virtuous performers in the industry.
Reason 4. The place
Veronafierre is a fantastic exhibition centre, with all the modern facilities you would expect, in an incredible city. It is economically beneficial to the region, bringing in an increased €1 billion investment, plus the additional employment created. Verona itself has developed a large logistics system, one of the most important in Europe, standing on a natural crossroads of two main lines of European transport, the Stockholm-Palermo and Barcelona-Kiev routes, representing the link between northern and southern Europe and between east and west.
In terms of culture, three of Shakespeare’s plays are set in Verona and the city has been awarded World Heritage Site status by UNESCO due to its urban structure and architecture, having preserved many ancient Roman monuments and beautiful medieval churches. Nearby Lake Garda, the surrounding mountainous region and the wine trail ensures the area is popular for tourism. When you’re going to Veronafierre, you should visit Verona as well.
