26. 04. 2023

Europe’s biggest logistics exhibition is just around the corner. It’s the best time to give five tips regarding events that you must not miss when visiting the exhibition in Munich between 9 - 12 May, 2023.

250 speakers, over 100 topics and more than 50 sessions in the conference programme: In Munich, transport logistic is organising the biggest event and support programme in its history in 2023. So that you can keep abreast of all the activities and networking events, here are five of the most exciting. Just a quick, not completely altruistic spoiler: They are all linked to the Rail Cargo Group.

Official Austrian Reception

Is there a better way to round off the first day at the exhibition than the official Austrian Reception from Advantage Austria? The foreign trade organisation from the Austrian Economic Chamber is renowned for its exceptional network meetings where a veritable who’s who in the industry discuss the latest developments. The opening speech is by Andreas Haidenthaler (Foreign Trade Centre Munich & WKO); other speakers include Zeno D’Agostino (Port of Trieste President) and ÖBB CEO Andreas Matthä. The Verkehr weekly journal is cooperation partner of the event.
