Dematic Cancels LogiMAT Participation

Heusenstamm, 3 March 2020 - Health and safety have priority: Dematic will not be taking part in the intralogistics trade fair LogiMAT this year. The reason for this is the corona virus, which is spreading ever faster.

"Dematic has stood for the greatest possible safety for decades. The health and well-being of customers and employees is always our top priority," says Rainer Buchmann, CEO of Dematic CE.

At a major event such as LogiMAT, it could not be ruled out that visitors to the fair or the stand crew could become infected with the coronavirus SARS-CoV-2. Rainer Buchmann: "We have therefore decided to cancel our participation in this important trade fair.”

The portfolio of solutions actually planned for LogiMAT is now to be presented to LogiMAT-registered customers exclusively at the multi-award-winning Imagination Center of Dematic in Heusenstamm, Germany as an additional event.

"In addition, the MHLC Europe will also be postponed," says Rainer Buchmann. An alternative date within the next six months can be expected as soon as possi-ble. This takes into account the wishes of the participants and the speakers due to the current situation.
