Multimodal teams up with the institute of Export & International Trade to deliver new seminar series

The Institute of Export & International Trade (IOE&IT) will host a series of sessions at Multimodal 2022, which takes place in Birmingham from the 14th to the 16th of June.

IOE&IT will lead sessions on the first and second days of the free-to-attend exhibition and show, giving practical advice and guidance on best practice for international trade to and from the UK.

Delegates taking part in the seminars will qualify for IOE&IT Continuing Professional Development (CPD) points.

“It is more important than ever that we support the industry to ensure supply chains are resilient and by working with IOE&IT to stage sessions offering training and guidance, we will be empowering our visitors to do just that,” said Robert Jervis, Director, Multimodal.

“Multimodal brings representatives from across the entire logistics sector together under one roof and it is an ideal opportunity for us to learn from each other and find new ways of driving efficiencies.”

As well as running seminars, the IOE&IT will also be hosting a pavilion for members.

“In this extraordinary year for trade, traders tell us that key priorities for them this year are attending in-person events for networking, while having the opportunity to further professionalise through training that delivers vital CPD points,” said Helen Hastie, Membership Services Manager, IOE&IT.

“We have been looking for the right event partner and best format to help us deliver these outcomes and are delighted to be working with Multimodal as the established exhibition in the international trade calendar.

“Hosted at Birmingham’s NEC, Multimodal offers a convenient and Covid-secure space for IOE&IT members and the wider trade community to attend, network and learn the latest trade thinking and procedural guidance.”

Multimodal, now in its 15th year, will also be working with Logistics UK, the Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport (CILT), the British International Freight Association (BIFA), and the Rail Freight Group (RFG) to develop further seminar tracks.

Last year’s event saw over 7500 supply chain decision makers and innovators meet face-to-face to network and do business, and this year’s show is set to be even bigger.

A record-breaking 800 people attended the Multimodal Awards 2021 celebrating innovation and achievement by companies and individuals from across the supply chain.

Nominations for this year’s awards will go live week beginning 17th January 2022.
