The 19th edition of SIL has a slogan that says it all: "Our success leads to your your business growth." Everything in the event is designed and focused on the profitability of the participating companies and professional business owners.
SIL has been gaining high participation over the last few years. In last year's edition (2016), there was a 45% participation from international companies. It has established itself as the leading fair in Spain and in southern Europe as far as logistics are concerned.
The venue chosen for SIL will be at Gran Vía de la Fira in Barcelona, between June 6th and 9th.
A place for networking
The city has become an annual meeting point in the logistics sector as it's the best place to do business.
SIL is the ideal fair for knowledge, logistics, networking and professional contacts. In addition to a large number of participating companies, there is a growing presence of very important figures in the logistics world, which facilitate professional and business meetings at the highest level. All of this was enhanced by the creation and development of the Logistical Circle.
The latest news and programmes for this year's edition
Just like in the previous editions, there will be a series of seminars, with topics related to logistics, parallel conferences and all kinds of presentations that will be very interesting for the participating companies and visitors.
Among the most important developments expected for this year is the creation of an interesting exhibition area, known as SIL Smart Logistics & Mobility. It will be at this event that we'll find out more about the latest innovations in products, technological solutions and supply chains.
The exhibition will include distribution companies, technology professionals, electric vehicle manufacturers, renewable energy management companies, ecommerce companies and environmental impact experts, among others.
Emergency Management Exhibition
The other important novelty for this year is the creation of an exhibition area, in a lateral space next to Pavilion 8, Montjuic-Plaza España de Fira de Barcelona. In this area, we will be able to know more about the action procedures and logistics of the Spanish government's Ministry of Defense, the Military Emergencies Unit(UME in Spanish).
This unit is in charge of assisting people who are faced with natural disasters and catastrophes.
Last year's edition
Last year's SIL edition featured an exhibition area of 20,000 sqm and more than 550 participating companies. There were exclusive presentations at an international level with 200 speakers taking part at the event.
