Materials Handling Saudi Arabia, the Kingdom’s dedicated exhibition and conference for the warehousing, intralogistics, and supply chain industries, will now take place in 2022, the show’s organizers have announced.

The 3rd edition of the biennial trade fair was originally scheduled to run in November this year, but will now take place from Nov. 22-24, 2022 at the Jeddah Center for Forums and Events.

The move comes as Saudi Arabia continues to implement appropriate health and safety measures within its borders to contain the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic, with the new dates widely supported by industry stakeholders.

Materials Handling Saudi Arabia is organized by Saudi-based ACE Group under license by Dubai-headquartered Messe Frankfurt Middle East, which organizes Materials Handling Middle East, the region’s flagship warehousing and intra-logistics trade fair.

“This was a difficult decision, but ultimately the correct one under the current circumstances, and we know Materials Handling Saudi Arabia will be hugely successful when it returns in 2022,” said Nish Liyanage, Materials Handling Saudi Arabia’s event director.

“For now, we understand the importance of knowledge sharing and uncovering global supply chain trends, particularly during these unprecedented times. To that end, we launched our Materials Handling webinar series which has so far proven to be very popular.”
