Deliver Europe Event Format is a Win-win

The iconic TAETS venue in north Amsterdam will host the 9th edition of DELIVER Europe, the 4th at this site. The event has become well-established, with an American version launched last October in Las Vegas and an Asian event coming to Singapore next March.

Stephane Tomczak, Founder and CEO, told Logistics Business that this year the regular themes of ecommerce, retail and last mile will be extended to encompass visibility, sustainability and cost-effectiveness. “Shippers and retailers are looking for solutions and tools to assist with stock management, meet inflationary challenges and enable savings to be passed to consumers,” he says.

This year there will be 1500 delegates, including many new faces, brands and speakers. “We start with a blank page each year,” Tomczak explains, “and have an amazing programme of insightful sessions. Speaker slots are in high demand and not just given to our customers.” Highlights include keynotes on circularity, customer-centricity and on-demand delivery. Speakers are drawn from blue-chip companies like Tesco, Lego, Ricoh, Maersk and Decathlon.

Unique Format

Exhibitors and sponsors buy a set amount of pre-arranged meetings with delegate buyers, ranging from 20 to 200, which determines the cost, which includes a stand/booth. “1-on-1 meetings, that’s what they’re buying,” says Tomczak. “It differs from traditional expo settings in that our delegates meet strict criteria and agree to having 6 meetings over the 2 days, in addition to attending the conference.” In return the delegates get free accommodation, transfers and catering. It’s a win-win.

Why attend

With around 70% of exhibitors returning from last year, plus new ones like Ocado Intelligent Automation, the focus has been on refreshing the audience whilst maintaining its quality. The organizers target the whole of Europe in attracting delegates and so have a large pool of decision-makers to work with.

“We’re still onboarding and almost at full capacity,” says Tomczak. “It’s the best use of your time. In 2 days, under 1 roof, you can meet meaningful vendor exhibitors, hear announcements, learn from content provide by your peers which is heavy on best practice. There are hundreds of business leaders, you can expand your network and it’s always super-useful.”

DELIVER is eco-conceived, with carbon emission offsetting of the delegates’ travel, making it perhaps the only carbon-neutral show in the logistics sector. Profits are invested in green funds and tech. To learn more about Deliver Europe or to register, click here
