Inside Forkliftaction.com Contact the Forkliftaction team
The world’s biggest materials handling tradeshow is winding down in Hannover, and it looks like another record-breaking event. Interestingly, around half of the exhibitors this year are from outside Germany - Forkliftaction.com among them.
While CeMAT organisers say the big foreign contingent is testament to their international marketing initiatives, it also reflects the globalisation of the industry - and especially the rise of China. With 84 exhibitors, China is the third-biggest nation represented at the fair, behind Germany and Italy, even though it has its own successful CeMAT show.
As mentioned, Forkliftaction.com is among the exhibitors and if you haven’t already done so, please drop in and see us before the show closes.
