Multimodal is the biggest logistics trade event in the UK, and a key commercial event for Pentalver. A massive amount of effort and work goes into making this event function, and on behalf of the Pentalver Leadership Team I want to personally thank everyone who contributed to making this show a success. From our colleagues who delivered the containers, put the stand together, took it apart, made it look great, designed it, did the safety assessments, produced the marketing, hosted the stand and served our customers, a big thank you for all your hard work and dedication.
The three day event at the NEC in Birmingham was a huge success, and the best show we have done so far. Over 1,000 people attended our container conversion pub The Pen-Tavern and met with our teams to develop better relationships, get business opportunities and improve our brand to the industry. There was no busier stand at the show than ours. We achieved all of our targets, and met the biggest names in our industry at the event. We hosted senior leaders from the world’s biggest shipping lines like Maersk Line, MSC, NYK, CMA-CGM, the biggest forwarders like Kuehne & Nagel, DHL, DB Schenker, huge retailers including Argos, Asda, M&S, Dunelm, Poundland, Boots, and other important shippers like Jaguar Landrover, Toyota, Caterpillar, and JCB.
We are now going through our business opportunities, and already our container sales team has converted some key opportunities into orders.
Thank you everyone who contributed to a successful show, your great efforts are very appreciated at this show piece logistics event. And a big thank you to our customers who visited us making this our best show so far.
