IWLEX conference produced by UKWA

  1. Conference Theatre
    Warehouses are safest when they integrate training, technology and regulatory adherence, under the leadership of people who care. This session will discuss the hazards in a logistics environment and highlight good practice in informing and educating the workforce, adopting suitable and well-maintained equipment, as well as spotting and tackling issues before something goes wrong.
  2. The world of retail logistics has changed dramatically over the past 25 years - we now live in an 'omnichannel world' where next-day delivery has become the norm and the efficient management of returns allows 3PLs to offer a competitive advantage as a 'retail enabler'. Come along to learn about the ongoing need for innovation as warehouses embrace the circular economy.

  3. Conference Theatre

    Discover the transformative potential of circular economy principles with innovative strategies for managing overstocks, end-of-range products, damaged or slightly soiled inventory, and short-dated perishables. Instead of resorting to costly destruction or indefinite storage, explore tax-efficient alternatives that allow you to extract social value from your surplus.

  4. Conference Theatre

    Discover cutting-edge solutions and industry-leading practices as our expert panel uncovers the eco-conscious evolution of supply chains. From enhancing energy efficiency to adopting sustainable packaging, uncover how top-tier companies are enhancing their operations, minimising carbon footprints, optimising resource allocation, and embracing the green revolution.

  5. Conference Theatre

    Ruth's inspiring presentation will discuss how to navigate the challenges of 'mum guilt' and reclaim joy in parenting without sacrificing your career ambitions. Self-compassion, time management and a positive mindset can all help. The networking group Women in Logistics was created back in 2008 to connect, engage and inspire women in our sector. 'Having it all' is a myth, but together we can celebrate life in all its imperfections and draw solidarity from others.

  7. Conference Theatre
    Take this opportunity to engage in brief, focused conversations with multiple people in a short period. Similar to the concept of speed dating, participants rotate through a series of 4 short sessions, lasting 8 minutes each, to interact with different mentors.  The goal of speed mentoring is to provide mentees with exposure to various mentors who can offer insights, guidance, and advice on their career development, personal growth, or specific challenges. This format allows mentees to benefit from diverse perspectives and quickly build a network of mentors.
  8. Conference Theatre
    Changes in government can lead to shifts in policies related to taxes, trade agreements, infrastructure investment, environmental policies and regulatory frameworks. With a General Election expected later this year, both the main political parties have demonstrated their willingness to engage with the business community.  Our experts share their views on the potential consequences for warehousing and logistics.
  9. Conference Theatre
    Jane Burkitt - who has spent over 30 years working in the supply chain for a range of consumer-oriented businesses - joined Mars last year as their Vice President Global Supply Chain Pet Nutrition. She will share her reflections on how supply chains have evolved and her perspective on the future of supply chain leadership and its implications for our profession.
  10. Conference Theatre
    Effective networking is not just about what you can gain but also about what you can contribute to others in your professional community. If the thought of networking makes you cringe, Ruth will allay your fears with a simple plan to maximise the benefits.  And then you can put it into practice straight away!

IWLEX Exhibitors say :

IWLEX Exhibitors say :

  • "We’ve never seen a show like it! Within six minutes of the inaugural IWLEX (Inside Warehouse & Logistics Exhibition) opening, we had our first inquiry in the bag. The two days in May at the Telford International Centre went on to be the most successful trade show we have attended in terms of deals created at the event itself and immediately afterward."
    Hi-Level Mezzanines Ltd
  • “We thoroughly enjoyed our time at IWLEX. It is a valuable exhibition for companies looking for the highest quality visitors. Visitor numbers may be lower than at other exhibitions, simply because the organisers have done a fantastic job in screening out time-wasters! Everyone who came onto our stand was a motivated buyer and we have had several high-quality leads since the exhibition. We recommend IWLEX to anyone looking for relevant leads within the world of warehousing and logistics. Thank you, Justin and Nairn!”

  • '' It was a good show and quality is always better than a high number of tyres kickers . We have engaged with two potential customers with live projects that at this point are looking promising hence committing to IWLEX24.''

  • "At 51T we are really excited to be part of the inaugural Inside Warehouse Logistics exhibition. Having exhibited at other events we felt it was time for something new, in particular the original idea of having the industry shape the event. We're looking forward to meeting a new group of buyers and becoming part of the new IWLEX community."
