Following the great success of Talent in Logistics 2017, the event is set to return, bigger and better, to the Telford International Centre, West Midlands, on Thursday 21st June 2018.
Don’t miss out on getting your tickets to this year’s event at an early bird rate!
Let’s look at five reasons why Talent in Logistics 2018 is not to be missed:
1. There’s professional development for people like you
Talent in Logistics is the only conference and awards completely dedicated to exceptional training, learning, and development professionals in the logistics, transport and warehousing industries. We’ve designed the agenda to provide people like you – training, learning and development managers, and forklift and LGV driving Instructors – with the relevant professional development opportunities that are so rarely available.
2. You’ll learn skills and knowledge to benefit your business
The event includes a daytime logistics and transport conference, with seminars, panel discussions and debates exploring key challenges faced across the transport and logistics industry. It’s a chance for you to learn new skills and gather information from top industry experts that will help benefit your business, and the industry as a whole. This isn’t ‘death by PowerPoint’. For example, there will be a live, educational demonstration to show the importance of LGV walk-around checks, plus a practical session that will teach materials handling equipment professionals how to properly conduct pre-use forklift truck inspections.
3. You can network with industry experts and suppliers
It is not always easy to know what kind of training is the best to suit your people and your business needs. For visitors looking to procure and deliver the right training, the Talent in Logistics Information Zone offers the opportunity to meet with experts and reputable suppliers from the transport and logistics industry.
With no other events specifically for learning and development professionals in the logistics industry, it’s also an unmissable opportunity to network with peers, discussing your challenges and sharing your experience.
4. It’s a chance to support the best forklift operators and instructors
The exciting Forklift Operator and Forklift Instructor of the Year live finals will both take place alongside the Talent in Logistics conference. It’s a chance to see best practice, and to cheer on the worthy finalists. Featuring some of the most talented lift truck operators and instructors from across the UK and Ireland, the competition will test their practical skills and knowledge via a series of live action challenges. Competition winners will be announced later that evening at the Talent in Logistics Awards.
5. Reward and Celebrate Your People at the Talent in Logistics Awards
The unique Talent in Logistics Awards recognise and reward the people that are essential to the success of the transport and logistics sector in UK and Ireland. It is an opportunity to demonstrate your commitment to quality training and to acknowledge the exceptional work of your staff. Categories include everyone from Training Managers, Driver CPC Training Providers and Instructors, through to Warehouse Managers, Apprentices and LGV Drivers. See the full list of awards categories here. It is simple and completely free to enter the awards online and nominations open on 3rd January 2018.
The winners of the prestigious Talent in Logistics Awards will be revealed by a celebrity host during a black-tie awards event, held on the same day and in the same location as the conference. Guests will have the opportunity to socialise and network, with other learning and development professionals as well as potential suppliers, during a champagne reception and gourmet three course meal.
