The show has since attracted a growing interest from the local network.

In a bold move to expand the potential and depth of the event in the logistics segment, Expolink partners world-class intralogistics organizers, EUROEXPO and Messe Stuttgart, in a collaboration that will tap on their expertise and international network to showcase more quality exhibitors, products and technology.

Peter Kazander, Managing Director of EUROEXPO said, "EUROEXPO organizes LogiMAT – the International Trade Fair for Intralogistics Solutions and Process Management, since 2003
in Stuttgart, Germany. Over the last 16 years, it grew to be the world leading tradeshow in its field. After we launched LogiMAT China successfully in 2014 we are happy to join the South-East Asian market now. Together with our strong partners, we are looking forward to the first ‘LogiMAT | Intelligent Warehouse’ in Bangkok in 2020. With this step we offer our exhibitors a fantastic opportunity to enter or expand in this fast developing market.”
By co-organizing the event ‘LogiMAT | Intelligent Warehouse’, EUROEXPO will utilize the advantages of LogiMAT, a world-class logistics event, and draw networks in the logistics industry around the world, to come and join the show and as a base for expanding the investment business in ASEAN.
