Talent In Logistics, the annual awards and conference event, will be hosted at a new venue in 2019.
Formerly held at the Telford International Centre, the event will now take place at the Marshall Arena, Milton Keynes on 27 June 2019.
Talent in Logistics’ is aimed at HR, L&D and Operational professionals within the logistics industry and focuses on the recruitment, development, engagement and retention of the 2.2 million+ people working in transport, warehousing and logistics across the UK and Ireland.
As well as the conference, the daytime event will host the live grand final of the Forklift Operator of the Year. The finalists are put through their paces with a number of interactive challenges to demonstrate skill and safety through both technical knowledge and practical lift truck operation.
New to 2019’s line up will be the LGV Driver of the Year Award which will celebrate drivers at the ‘coalface’ of the industry and will include online nomination, live heats and a live grand final.
The Talent in Logistics Annual Awards will be held in the evening at the Hilton Doubletree in Milton Keynes and will "showcase and celebrate the huge range of talent across the industry". The award categories will be announced shortly - entries will open on 7 January 2019.
Ruth Edwards, Business Manager at Talent in Logistics said: “After two successful events, we have reached the next stage for Talent in Logistics which is to build the brand itself as a trusted voice across the industry. We want to work collaboratively with organisations and individuals to make a difference with the challenges it is facing, whilst ensuring our key focus is on the people who are seldom recognised but without whom our sector could not survive.
“We will also be launching a brand new website in the coming months, where visitors will be able to easily find a range of helpful resources and information about our latest updates and events.”
