IntraLogisteX Exhibition – Coventry

Westgate recently attended the IntraLogisteX exhibition in the Ricoh Arena in Coventry. The event covers a range of logistics and supply chain solutions, for challenges that are currently ongoing or could arise in the future. The exhibition showcases cutting-edge technology that transforms the way operations are handled in a range of industry settings.

IntraLogisteX is a great event for logistics professionals who want to discover innovative solutions for obstacles relating to everything from materials handling, to full-scale warehouse automation.

As well as showcasing a range of products and service suppliers, the IntraLogisteX exhibition hosted a comprehensive Technical Seminar agenda accredited by The Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport, allowing visitors to keep up with their professional qualifications.

This year’s event took place on Wednesday 15th and Thursday 16th March 2017 and was the biggest exhibition to date.

Up to 1,000 key figures from the Warehouse and Logistics sector attended and Westgate’s exhibition did exceptionally well.

Our main focus for the event was Flexiwall partitioning, which is used for functions such as dust control, creating temperature controlled enclosures, and segregating areas to allow for the storage of different client goods.

Flexiwall VR

One of the highlights of the Westgate stand, which proved to be extremely popular was the Flexiwall VR experience offered to visitors. Visitors found it incredibly useful to be able to see the product in situ, as well as viewing the height and scale of the product and how it is installed. The technology was extremely well received by those in the sector and ensured the Westgate stand saw a lot of traffic, and was a complete success. Those visitors with limited time benefited from the takeaway cardboard VR viewers and downloadable app. This enabled Flexiwall to be shown to other key personnel back at the office.

Those that visited the stand were also impressed by the key benefits of Flexiwall partitioning including, the speed of installation, how the solution allows for light transit and its adaptability to change.

The success of the Flexiwall partitioning led to queries regarding other Westgate products, including Hoardfast, the low level free standing partitioning system.

We’re thrilled the event was such a success and that Westgate’s Flexiwall industrial partitions and factory dividers proved so popular.
