• More than 50 logistics decision-makers will visit TEST CAMP on February 12/13
• B2B visitors can test the IFOY finalists 2020 and the nominated products of previous years
• More than 30 innovations are ready for testing
The TEST CAMP Intralogistics of the International Intralogistics and Forklift Truck of the Year AWARD, or IFOY AWARD for short, is fully booked. At the premiere of the B2B event on February 12 and 13 under the motto “IFOY meets Business”, 50 logistics decision-makers will have the opportunity to try out the same products in the test hall of IFOY partner HANNOVER MESSE that the 27-member international IFOY jury is testing at the
same time. From drones, forklifts and warehouse trucks to software, robots, AGVs and container stackers, a total of more than 30 products and solutions are on the test field.
Among the guests are representatives of renowned companies from industry, trade and logistics services. Among others, representatives of major industrial companies such as BASF Chemicals, BMW, Volkswagen, Siemens, Porsche, Rolls Royce Power Systems or Rewe have registered. From the logistics services sector, BLG, Dachser, Kühne + Nagel, DB Schenker and numerous medium-sized contract logistics companies are represented by experts.
“The interest in the neutral expertise of the IFOY AWARD is growing in the economy. Both large DAX-listed corporations and medium-sized companies send intralogistics experts to the TEST CAMP, some of whom are responsible for purchasing volumes in the double-digit million range per year. In a quiet test atmosphere they can form their own opinion on the latest innovations”, emphasizes Anita Würmser, executive chairperson of the jury.
The camp offers guests the opportunity to gather intensive information over two days in the test arena. They can take part in 16 guided highlight tours on the most important intralogistics topics, hold talks with the representatives of the IFOY nominees and put the intralogistics equipment through its paces themselves in cordoned-off fields.
To give visitors an overview of the program and current information, the IFOY organisation has put together an app for the first time. On February 12, during the IFOY Dinner, the camp visitors will have the opportunity to network. There they will have the chance to meet other VIP guests, representatives of the manufacturers, scientists of the IFOY Innovation Check and the international jury members.
Neither the visitors nor the nominees will get to know who has won an IFOY AWARD during the IFOY TEST DAYS. They all have to be patient for some more weeks. Only during the IFOY AWARD NIGHT on April 20th, the opening day of the HANNOVER MESSE, the verdict of the international jury will be announced.
