Multimodal and FTA announce new awards and seminar partnership

The Freight Transport Association and Multimodal have joined forces to launch new awards categories and a fresh series of seminars at next year’s show.

The new awards event is being rebranded The FTA Multimodal Awards and will celebrate best-in-class achievement for all transport modes, as well as featuring new categories including innovation, training, and environmental best practice, and the Multimodal Personality and Exhibitor of the Year.

David Wells, Chief Executive Officer of the FTA, says, “FTA has supported the Multimodal event since its inception. With the awards and seminar programme becoming ever more popular, we are delighted to officially partner with Multimodal so that we can help grow the event and provide even more value for our members and the industry as a whole.”

Robert Jervis, Multimodal Director, pictured, said he was delighted to be working more closely with the FTA to deliver an enhanced seminar programme and a bigger and better awards event, during the show which takes place at Birmingham’s NEC on 10th to 12th May. He says, “Multimodal provides an important platform for our industry to grow business opportunities, meet, learn, and network, and thanks to this partnership, we can deliver even more value to our visitors and exhibitors.”

The partnership will also see the FTA host an additional series of mode-specific workshops on its Multimodal Seminar Day on 11th May as well as other interest group meetings. This year’s seminars included panel debates on container weights, measuring carbon footprint and freight by water.

Multimodal 2015 was a record breaker, with over 8500 supply chain decision makers visiting over 290 exhibitors. This year’s Awards included five categories and attracted over 450 guests for an evening event at the National Motorcycle Museum.
